Beginner and Improver Groups

Our beginner group began on 4th October and is now closed to absolute beginners. However, if you're already running a little and are interested in joining part way through, please contact Alison (Beginner Running Coordinator). Our improver group (Wednesdays 7pm, Manor Road), aimed at at people who've run their first 5K and want to move their running on, remains open. You can sign up at: https://groups.runtogether.co.uk/RoadhoggsBeginners

Training

We're now back at the University Sports Centre on Manor Road for the winter. Routes for 18/10/17 (Swain Street): 6.1 miles, 5.1 miles and 3.9 miles.

League Champions!

Massive congratulations to our veteran ladies, who are Leicestershire Road Running League champions for 2017. They won every round, bar the first (our own race), and wrapped up the title with a race to spare. This is the first time in our history that one of our teams has won the league outright.

Award Winners

Well done to our Summer League prize winners: Rachel (5th Senior), Charlotte (1st V45), Jackie (1st V50) and Emma (1st V50). We salute the hard work and dedication that has gone in to achieving these awards. The whole club is proud of you.

Club Handicap

Congratulations to Hilary and Steve P, our handicap champions for 2017. For Steve, that makes a hat-trick of wins over the challenging Illston-based course. With 9 people finishing within a minute of their target time, there were some really good runs. Results.

Swithland 6

Some excellent running on a course that is by no means fast. A warm day but thankfully, not a true Swithland scorcher. Among the highlights were PBs for Jeannette, Marcus, Tim, Charlotte and Jackie. Jackie hit Diamond standard, there were Golds for Emma, Charlotte, Dale and Dave, plus Silvers for Rachel and Tim. Final results and tables.

Winter League Awards

Prizewinners

Well done to Charlotte (2nd V45), Jackie (2nd V50), Emma (3rd V50) and Dave (2nd V55).

West End 8

Runners were falling like flies beforehand but those that made it to the startline did us proud. Conditions were nice and comfortable, although the head on breeze did add to the challenge of the last 3 miles. Congratulations to Harry on his first race for the club and to Jackie who bagged the V50 prize and a Diamond Standard with a scorching time. Final results and tables are on the LRAN site.

Livingston Relays

Well done to Captain Ben and his teams, who finished 17th and 34th (out of 41 men's teams) in the annual relays. Team A 73.40 (Max Barratt 18.29, James B 17.47, Will Carter 18.37, Ben Milsom 18.47). Team B 88.48 (Gurmit Garcha 19.00, Lee Hubbard 22.44, Tom Martin 22.00, George Barratt 25.04).

Bosworth XC

The final race of the season took place over a wet and muddy course, offering plenty of variety and a good challenge. Both ladies and men packed well to round off a really good season. Our bakers pulled out the stops as well, so all in all a great finish despite the rain. Results.

Markfield 10K

Final results and tables are available on the LRAN website.

English National Cross Country Champs

National XC Ladies National XC men

Congratulations to Brian, who once again completed 'The National'. This year was his first time as a V70 and to honour the occasion, we made our debut in the men's team competition. James B, James T, Dave, Ben, Terry and Brian finished 130th team and Rachel and Jacqui D had great runs in the ladies' event. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will be back for more.
