Roadhoggs Leicester AC

Roadhogg runners


On Wednesday 25th we'll be running from Burton Overy (LE8 9DL; meet on the corner, opposite the pub). Please park responsibly and leave the pub car park for customers. Routes: 6.4 miles, 5.5 miles and 4.2 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).

Desford 5

It was a perfect morning for running and there were lots of smiling faces as the spring weather finally put in an appearance. Charlotte led the ladies home with a Gold Standard performance and Janet backed her with a new PB. For the men, Gurmit came close to his PB, Sam J broke his, Igor was rapid and Sam C had his best race to date. Draft results (via LRAN).

Bosworth XC

We were a bit down on numbers due to the rival attractions of Mothers' Day and spring Marathon training but we managed a men's team and the ladies played their joker to gain some valuable points. The course was the usual mud-fest but full of interest and varied challenges. Despite not being a fan of the mud, Gurmit had a great race to finish 29th and he was joined in the top 100 by Sam J, Richard and Dave. For the ladies, Julie led home Helen and Trudy. Full report to follow. Results.

Stilton 7

The icy winds were a bit challenging but a dry sunny morning made for excellent running conditions as we kicked off the 2018 LRRL season. Andrew made an excellent club debut and Sam, Stevie and Julie ran their first road race for the club. Whilst we lost a few to injury and illness, we still managed to field 21 runners. Mark and Leah led the way for their respective teams and there were PBs for Janet and Dave. Results. Tables are on LRAN.

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.

Beginners and Improvers

Our next beginner group will start in October. However, 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. If you think this might be for you, please contact Alison (Beginner Running Coordinator).
