Eastleigh 10k 2015

19 IWRR’s coached to participate in Eastleigh 10k today. This year saw the largest number on entrants, always a well marshaled and supported road race following a figure of eight route through Eastleigh finishing in Fleming Park.

The clouds parted for the 9am start accompanied by wind. We had a few members completing the distance for the first time, PB’s from others and some tackling the race with illness. A few people super-close to PB’ing, not to worry a few 10k’s left in the season to smash them!

Congratulations all who tackled the XC and also to those that supported and helped marshal in that horrendous weather!

Host of Half Marathons

We had IWRR’s tackle a whopping three half marathons today. The weather wasn’t kind with intermittent icy rain and gusts of up to 30mph.

Birthday girl Sarah Holmes travelled to Brighton for the aptly named 25th Vitality Brighton Half Marathon. The race got underway early for the huge field of nearly 8,000 runners taking in some beautiful sights.  Congratulations on your PB Sarah:

Bramley 20

Sunday 15th Feb – Sunny, calm and cold; perfect conditions for our 15 road runners to tackle Bramley 20 miles.

Bramley 20/10 is a 10 mile undulating looped course. It used to be part of the HRRL but still a favourite amongst our runners and timed brilliantly in the running calender for those tackling a spring marathon.

There was a large field of 1387 runners completing the 10 or 20 miles. All our runners finished the 20 miles and did brilliantly with some PB’s and first attempts racing this long distance:

Steve R: “A special mention should be given to George and Sarah. George for taking a big step up in distance and continuing to the finish even if things got hard for him, and Sarah for forgoing her time to stay with George when he was struggling and stayed with him to the end. A totally unselfish act and highlights the fantastic spirit in the club!”

Ryde 10 2015

Today the Isle of Wight Road Runners tackled a HRRL race on home turf.

IMAG3769

 

We had a huge Road Runner turn-out to support this well executed local race including 55 runners, time keepers, marshals and lots supporting our runners by cheering and taking photos.

2015 saw the introduction of a new route, though maintained the hills and beautiful scenery. Everyone today had to battle against 30mph winds and serious wind chill. But in true Road Runner style some runners managed to get PB’s!

Brutal 10

Today three of our IWRR women traveled to Long Valley, Aldershot to represent the club at the Brutal 10.

The Brutal 10k was the first women only race for the brand, as the name suggests it’s a brutal course; consisting of two 5k laps of hills, mud, ice and lots of water. The Brutal 10 also welcome proficient Canicross members to run the 5 or 10k with their dogs.

Jodie Giffard and Tarnia Taylor both got times of 1:13:04 and came in 42nd and 43rd respectively both participating in the 10k run. Claire Campbell competed with her dog Cally and they completed their 10k in 1:28:06.
