Hampshire XC League – Popham Airfield

Popham Airfield in Basingstoke was the venue for the 3rd Hampshire Cross Country League match.

Two Isle of Wight Road Runners in attendance and results as follows:

  • Paul Cameron 36th 34:34
  • Graham Tuck 159th 41:27

The men had good weather but not a typical XC course as Popham was a flat looped course.

Well run Paul and Graham, and a club debut too.

Godshill Massive Fun Run

On 30th November a fun run organised by Mick Coultrup and his Godshill Massive went ahead.

Invites were issued to all island clubs with all abilities welcome to run the 7.2 miles. All proceeds of both run and cake sale were to go towards the Godshill Church wall restoration. The grand total of funds was £774.50, so well done to Mick and all those that attended this well presented local run.

Gosport Half Marathon 2014

45 Isle of Wight Road Runners joined a field of nearly 2,000 runners to take part in the 29th Gosport Half Marathon.

This year was a change in course which saw runners complete two laps of Lee esplanade then into the village of Stubbington and finish back at Browndown Road.

The runners were greeted at the start with a very heavy downpour, but luckily the rain dissipated with just intermittent showers to contend with.
