Hampshire XC League Results

 A great start to the season, warm sunshine and dry conditions.

The women finished second behind the ever increasing Aldershot domination. Carmen Sanchez-Toribo in her first race against the seniors had a fantastic run in 10th place.

The vet women finished clear winners with Lucy Elliott, Kath Bailey and Georgia Benson.

The men finished in 7th behind some strong teams, led home by Callum Upton, again in his first race against the seniors.

The vet men packed well to gain 4th spot with Pete Mitchell followed home by new members, who had great runs, Cornel Brink and Sam Johnston.

RR10 End of Season - Thanks and Very Well Done to all.

We would like to say a huge THANKS to all those WADAC members and their families who turned up to help out course setting, marshalling, manning the finish line, cake baking and packing up at last week’s RR10 at Hursley. You all helped to make the evening go off perfectly.

Since it’s the end of the season this is a good opportunity to look back over our performances this Summer – we have achieved a lot as you can see from the following summary.

A total of 79 WADAC athletes represented the club throughout the series (31 ladies and 48 men), and a special mention goes to Sarah Aldridge, John Gore and Matt Lane who completed all nine races. We would also like to thank all those newcomers who attended an RR10 race for the first time this year – we hope you enjoyed it and hope you will be back for more action next year. All your collective efforts helped the ladies team secure 2nd place overall for the third year in a row, and helped the men’s team to a 4th place overall – our best since 2011. Our ladies also won the B Team competition.

On an individual front, Martyn West won the MV60 category. Congratulations Martyn!

Our best performing lady was Francessca Eddy, who finished in 7th place, closely followed by Marta Cecconi (9th) and Sam Parkinson (10th). Ian Debnam was our highest placed man in 8th place. Sam Parkinson and John Gore also laid down a marker for next season by finishing 2nd overall in their respective age groups.

James Moore will surely be looking to improve next season, although it may be difficult to match his achievements over the last 12 months. In Race No 7 in the 2013 season (his first ever) he came 151st whilst in the same race this season he came 28th !

Finally, thanks to a new spreadsheet that the RR10 results secretary has prepared we can report that Martyn West has now completed a total of 123 RR10s ! Mike Davies and David Walker also racked up their 50th RR10 this year. If you want to know where you stand in this all-time league table, or if you want to know any other results for the 2014 season, then go to www.rr10.hampshire.org.uk .

Thanks and Congratulations to everyone – hope to see you all again at next year’s races!

RR10 Volunteers - Wednesday 20th August, IBM

Please can volunteers for helping at the RR10 next Wednesday arrive as soon after 5pm as you are able as we will need help staking out the course and putting up direction signs, and then directing traffic into the car park. Chris and I will be there from mid afternoon setting up so if you have time on your hands then do come along early as help is always welcome!

I appreciate that 5pm is too early for many, so arrive when you can after that. We will have a marshalls briefing around 6:30pm and the race starts at 7:15pm.

Cake bakers are still needed so please make and bring something if you can. Last year we had an impressive selection of cakes to offer to runners so it would be great to be able to do that again.

We could still do with a few more volunteers so please do make it if you can. The race start and finish is next to the clubhouse at IBM, Hursley, SO21 2JN.  It’s best to use the second turning into IBM as you’re driving there from Winchester, it’s not the signposted main entrance but the next one on the right. You will see a stone circular seat around a tree at the turning. Race details and map are here.

Either follow the RR10 car park signs or if you are early follow signs to the clubhouse and you should be able to park there.

Any problems on the day email rr10manager@wadac.org.uk or call 07795 510705.

Naturally there will be a pub trip afterwards, either at the clubhouse or to one of the pubs in Hursley.

See you then.

Catherine
