Virgin Money London Marathon 

Firstly congratulations to our many runners at this years VMLM....a quick glance at the results shows 23 Winchester runners and there are always a few more running under various second clam and charity affiliations.  Of all those 6 of our athletes recorded times under 3 hrs and our fastest on the day was George King in 2h31m45s.  In a day of many fine performances perhaps our standout performer was Hayley Munn, 3rd lady from the massed start in a fabulous time of 2h38m04s. 
It is however too easy to focus on the quicker times, everyone taking part in a marathon has their own set of challenges to face in training and on race day is really an event where everyone deserves to be congratulated.
With that in mind three things:

a)  Pub of the Month this Thursday 28th April at the Queen Inn, come on down with tales of derring done and show us your medals......of course not just for marathon runners and certainly not just for the VMLM we have marathon success in Paris, Brighton and many other places to celebrate too
b) a reminder that the public ballot entry system for the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon will open to all applicants on Monday 2 May 2016. This ballot system will close at 17:00 on Friday 6 May 2016. The ballot will be open for five days to give everyone who would like to enter the event a fair chance to do so.
c) a reminder that one of the criteria for entry into the ballot for club places in said VMLM2017 is that you have tried and failed in the public ballot referred to in (b) above
Finally a wee thought for those whose turn has yet to come.....Milton Keynes, Kent Road Runner and of course Malcolm on the West Highland Way.



Hampshire Road Relays: Results

WADAC did very well once again at the Hampshire Road Relays today.


Our 19 U11 boys and girls both achieved in close fought second place, the boys just one point from Southampton.  Tom Grote and Harry Harvey in second and fourth place respectively were both within seconds of their Southampton rivals.  Millie Burgess was second in the girls' race.


Our team of U13 boys - Josh Hawke, Louis Browning and Thomas Briggs - was 3rd.


Isla Allan, Poppy Clement and Natasha Miles one the U15 girls' race.


Kathy Bailey, Emma Carter and Caroline Carr were 2nd, 3rd and 4th fasters runners among V40 runners and not surprising therefore won the V40 team race.

Peat Allan, Marius Kwint and Simon Stevens were second team in the V40 men's race.


Martyn West, Steve Goodwin and Derek Smith were second V60 team.

Well done everyone!

HRRL: the women win another season - call to the men!

WADAC women are in unassailable leads in both A and B leagues in the HRRL.  Well done once again!  It is an amazing achievement.  The women's C team could still be beaten into second place in the B league but it would need a major last burst by Hedge End or Stubbington B.

The men are in our best position for many years - in second in both A and B leagues.  But it remains very tight.  Lordshill look like they have first place in both leagues sewn up, but second place will be hotly contested.  We will need good teams in the last 3 events to hold on to our positon.

So please sign up to the Alton 10 on 8 May (only 16 entrants so far), Netley 10K on 15 May and D-Day 10K on 5 June.
