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.

Excellent turnout at both events!

 

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.
