Training

We're now back at the University Sports Centre on Manor Road for the winter. On Wednesday 21st, we'll be doing the Marydene routes (in reverse to that shown): 6.3 miles, 5.2 miles and 4 miles. Improver routes (<4 miles) will also be available, as required).

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).

Charnwood Hills Race

Five members tackled Leicestershire's only 'long' fell race. Although the weather was cold and dry, recent rain meant the course was not taking any prisoners. Dave and Kathryn both managed to improve on their 2017 times, while Steve W (injury) and Hitesh (illness) adopted the sensible approach. Unfortunately Aruna, who had completed a 20-miler on the Friday, missed the cut-off.

Allestree XC

Prab Stevie

Round 4 of the Derby Runner XC League was held in Narnia (Allestree). A dozen guys and a half dozen ladies, plus hardy supporters Kim, Amy and Jackie braved the conditions and made sure we scored well. Special mention to Stevie and Prab, who both made their league debuts. Results. Picture credit: V+M Images.

New Beginner and Improver Groups

Our latest beginner group started on 10th January and has now closed. 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 or for more information contact Alison (Beginner Running Coordinator).

The Men's Captain's Award went to James Thurman and the Most Improved Athlete awards went to Jeannette Franklin and Marcus Shaikh. The Cross Country Captains' Awards went to Rachel Dearden and Sam Jolly.

As well as Charlotte, there were 100% Awards for Emma Raven, Dale Jenkins, Dave Lodwick, Ben Milsom, Marcus Shaikh and James Thurman. Well done to all of our winners!

Holly Hayes XC

The woods were at their autumnal best and the course was technical but fast. If the rain had stayed away it would have been just perfect! George made his cross country debut and most of those who were new for this season came back for another go. Considering most of the runners had been at the club dinner the previous evening, no one seemed worse for wear. For the men, the oldies were to the fore with Richard G, Dave and Dale following Dave P home. Bec was top hoggette with Aruna, Helen and Janet making up the scoring four. Results.
