The winding country lanes of the Hampshire countryside were the setting for the 9th race in the Hampshire Road Race League. With only 3 races left in the this years series the league placings are really hotting up.
After an unsettled week of weather, the sky was clear and blue as the team made their way up to the top of Hampshire county, into Jane Austen country, arriving at the village of Holybourne.
Starting at Eggars School, the 10 mile course then wound itself around a circuit of undulating countryside.
Despite being surprisingly warm from an early hour, the team in white blue and red attacked the course with gusto.
Ross Wilkes continued his hugely successful season by marching home in a spanking 19th overall against the cream of the county’s club runners. Simon Riley was over the line a few minutes later. Kev Rann gave a fantastic performance having only run a marathon the Sunday before. Bridget was the only lady from the club to take on the race. She put in a fine performance to take her one step closer to her “Run all 12” goal.
Well done gang -great running
