Roadhoggs Leicester AC

Roadhogg runners


We're back at Manor Road every week until the spring. On the 23rd, we'll be doing the 'Tour of Oadby' routes (6.1 miles, 5 miles and 4 miles).

We also offer 'structured' sessions on a Tuesday at Victoria Park (War Memorial, 7pm) where our coach supervises hill and interval training. These sessions are aimed at any member who wants to improve their running (irrespective of current speed). On the 15th we'll be doing a hill session.

Annual Dinner

The Roadhoggs Annual Dinner and Presentation Evening will take place in The Charles Palmer Suite at LCCC on Saturday 23rd November. Will Gurmit defend his title of 'Athlete of the Year'? Come along to cast your vote and see. The evening will include a 3-course meal, disco and club awards for 2019. Tickets (£20 per head, no charge for children under 12) are available by PayPal from this link or  by card or cash from Alison at Wednesday training.

Happy Anniversary Hoggs!

35th Anniversary team

Roadhoggs celebrated the 35th anniversary of the club's founding by splashing the burgundy at Leicester Victoria parkrun. Over 30 members ran and a couple of others joined the volunteers. Founding Charman Kim Richardson still plays an important role in the club and there are several who remember the early days of 'Hogg Robinson Roadhoggs' as we were known in those days.

Tyro Trackies


Rambo, Sam J and Dave L all made their track debuts at the 5K Track Challenge in Nottingham. All three splashed through the puddles to record PBs for the distance. Second-claimers Ludo (PB) and Dave P were also mixing it with the more seasoned track athletes. Ludo (Race 6) 16.09.7, Mark (Race 3) 17.40.1, Dave P (Race 4) 17.40.3, Sam (Race 2)18.55.4, Dave L (Race 1) 20.18.

Beginners and Improvers

Our 10 week beginner has finished. Our improver group (Wednesday's 7pm at the same venue as the main run, above), aimed at at returning runners and people who've run their first 5K and want to move their running on, is still open. If you think this might be for you, please contact Alison (Beginner Running Coordinator).

Mat and Amy Beat the Handicapper


The annual club 10K handicap was a keenly contested affair. First home was Mat Buswell, beating his handicap by 58 seconds. He was quickly followed by first lady Amy Barnes (47 secs inside), Laura Pepper (42 secs), Dan Del Grecco (3 secs) and Mark Ramsden (7 secs outside). Contestants and supporters rounded off their evening by enjoying excellent rehydration and bar snacks in the Fox and Goose. Full results.
