The final HRRL race of 2016 – Victory 5, hosted by City of Portsmouth Athletic Club. The race now in its 70th year attracts a very wide field to include many elites from abroad as well as within the UK. With an extensive prize list of over £3500 and this year substantial commemorative medals for all competitors.
The course is mostly flat although rather exposed in places and very twisty, but despite this PB’s can be found. Weather conditions for today were highs of 3*c sunny and breezy.
We had a club turn-out of 12 and fielded one mens team and two womens teams – which is fantastic considering it’s the morning after the night before (Club Awards Do)!
