The Hampshire Road Race League now has two new ways to communicate:
- a Facebook page - it is a closed group that anyone can ask to join
- and a Twitter account (@hrrl)
The Facebook page will be increasingly used for information on races.
A very windy Gosport Half today finished with the award of tropies and mugs for last season.
Trophies were awarded to:
The ladies A, B and C teams
Men's B team
And for individuals Natalie Cain (third individual overall), Sarah Gurney, Lynne Whitaker, Sally Easton and me (all vets prizes). Jo Curtis and John Gore are both owed t-shirts for doing all 12 races.
Mugs for all of those who had finished 7 races and finished in the top 65 individuals were also handed out. I have them and will distribute them as soon as I can.
As for the Gosport Half itself, two laps up and down Lee-on-Solent meant a misture of headwind and tailwind. There were 33 WADAC finishers with prizes for Karen Rushton (2nd V45), me (1st V45), Steve Goodwin (2nd V60) and Jonathan Kane (2nd V70).
Well done everyone. The Victory 5 is in three weeks. Do enter now if you want to make sure you have a place. Let's hope the wind dies down by then!
