RR10 Race 1 Results

35 WADAC athletes were greeted by near perfect conditions and a surprise appearance by Alexis Green off The Weather when they took part in the first race of the season at Royal Victoria Country Park. I think 35 is a record turn out for us (or very close) so thank you very much for all your efforts, particularly those who are taking part in the London Marathon this weekend.

I think we had six debutants (Vicky Langdon, Charlotte Hoskins, Patricia Burns, Sara Morgan, Nick Barlow and Graham Bungay (a debut for WADAC at least!)), and personal best finishes for Eli Dawson and Alex Whiting.

All in all a very promising start to the season! Hope to see you again in two weeks at Stoney Cross.

RR10 is this Wednesday - Royal Victoria Country Park

This Wednesday (22nd April) sees the first of the RR10s at Royal Victoria Country Park (SO31 5GA) in Netley.

Start time is 7pm and the traffic tends to be bad getting to this one so allow as much time as you can. Car parking will be in the top field as usual but the park have said they will allow car parking in any designated car park there so as to avoid congestion.

Postcode for sat navs is SO31 5GA but follow it round to the main signposted entrance or it tends to try and lead you into the forest.

It will be a two lap course around the park and along the beach. The course is very dry, unlike other years, and there is visible rubble and tree roots along some stretches so care needs to be taken.

Full details can be found at the RR10 website here.

For those who don’t know the RR10 league is a Spring / Summer series of 10 cross country races organised by Hampshire running clubs. They are held on Wednesday evenings, once a fortnight at various locations along the south coast(ish) area between Gosport(ish) and the New Forest. Entry is free! You just need to bring your club vest, and only open to club runners. The races are generally between 4 and 5 miles long and cater for all abilities. A great way to pep up your mid week training on stunning courses in lovely evening summer sunshine, with 30 or 40 of your nearest and dearest club mates. Insect repellent optional!

With the right turn out WADAC can do extremely well in this league so please do try and make it and lets go for a big turnout of the black and gold.

RR10 League - The New Season !

Unbeleivably the RR10 season is upon us again already! The first event of the season is Wednesday April 22nd at Royal Victoria Country Park, 7pm. Traffic can be busy down there if I remember rightly so please leave enough time to get there. As far as I know the course is similar to previous years although hopefully a little drier than last year.

Want to know more? The RR10 league is a Spring / Summer series of 10 cross country races organised by Hampshire running clubs.

Our ladies A team normally do extremely well (2nd place overall in the last two years) and so it would be great to maintain this standard. However it would be even better to demonstrate the sheer size of the club at the moment and show just how many people we can get representing us in the Black and Gold! Good performances from our A, B, C, D and E teams would be fantastic!

Hope to see you there on Wednesday.
