Training

For our Wednesday run from Manor Road on January 23rd we'll be doing the Tour of Oadby routes in the opposite direction to that shown (just to keep you on your toes). Routes: 6.2 miles,  5 miles and 4.1 miles. Alison will also lead an improvers run.

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). For 22/1/19 we'll be doing an Oregon Session. This workout, in which you alternate running and strength exercises, is a great way to improve your ability to overcome fatigue in the later stages of a race.

Beginners and Improvers

Our 10 week beginner group began on Wednesday 9th January at 6.15pm. Our improver group (Wednesdays 7pm, Manor Road), aimed at at people who've run their first 5K and want to move their running on, is also open. If you think this might be for you, please contact Alison (Beginner Running Coordinator).

Bagworth

Bagworth team picture

We had a great turnout at a rather drizzly Bagworth Heath. Sezer and Chris B made great debuts and Berhane did really well to battle round, what ended up being quite a slippery course, in road shoes. Sam J dug deep to beat Richard for the honour of being first Hogg and Trudy, Jeannette, Natasha, Cath and Siobhan brought it home for the ladies. Provisional results.

County XC Champs

Brian

Well done to our representatives in the County Cross County Championships. Valerie flew the flag for the ladies, we had Sam J and Sam C in the Seniors, and Richard, Terry and 'championship specialist' Brian in the Masters. Enjoying the firmer going and spurred on by a race-long battle with Steve Morris of Desford, Brian had one his best races for a while and finished with a huge smile on his face.

DRL Race 3: Bradgate

A massive thank you to the Roadhoggs and friends who helped stage our cross country race at Bradgate. There has been lots of positive feedback. Results.

Holly Hayes XC

A perfect day for running cross country. Eight Hoggettes and Eleven Hoggs enjoyed the twisty turny course through Holly Hayes Woods. No hills this time but lots of leaves, rocks and water. We were pleased to welcome Mat for his first taste of proper XC. Once again, Mark and Aruna were our first finishers.

Launde XC

A beautiful day, if a little chilly, for the first fixture of the 2018-19 season. We were treated to a new course and, despite the absence of mud, it was a real tester. At least the frequent hills provided good views of the beautiful East Leicestershire countryside! Our nine ladies were led in by Aruna and the eleven gents by Mark. Results.

Carl Rutt 10K

This is one of the toughest road races in the county but we had lots of really good runs. Mark and Jackie led the teams and Richard came out to show the youngsters how it's done. Charly, Debra and Andy all ran well on debut, with Andy joining Cath, George and Brhane in setting a PB. Results via LRAN
