Please remember that tonight we’re meeting 6.45pm at Sandown High School outdoor athletics track.
A total of 29 IWRR’s took on the undulating mud and water that has become synonymous with Ryde Harriers XC’s. This was the second of their 2015 Cross Country season.
Very respectable results for both women and men covering 5 and 7 miles respectively.

We came away with an impressive medal/trophy haul. Firstly Paul Cameron for First Man home and 1st V40. Stuart Backhouse was 3rd V40 and Pete Sexton 2nd V50. Hayley Baxter came in 2nd V35 for the women and we also received medals for our teams with the top three men: Paul, Stu and Danny coming in first and our top three women: Hayley, Jodie and Abi third team home.
Congratulations all who tackled the XC and also to those that supported and helped marshal in that horrendous weather!
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:
Nick Kenney took to the New Forest for the Heartbreaker Half Marathon, this was an undulating off road course of both a full marathon and half marathon. Nick came in 17th position – excellent result:
Finally we had 8 tackle the Portsmouth Coastal Half Marathon starting and finishing in Southsea. Terrain consisting of road, grass, mud and shingle. Some superb times despite the icy rain and wind:
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!”
Today the Isle of Wight Road Runners tackled a HRRL race on home turf.
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!

*Unofficial timing & position.
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.
Brilliant run ladies and Cally!
An astounding 64 Isle of Wight Road Runners signed up to the 30th Stubbington 10k.
Conditions were good; 2 degrees, cloudy and dry which produced some brilliant PB’s for lots of our runners and some by as much as 7 minutes!!

This is the largest turn-out the IWRR’s have had at a Hampshire Road Running League event so very well done to each and every one of you that took part today as an IWRR and a special thanks to those that supported the runners.
Sunday 21st December was the fifth Portsmouth Coastal Waterside Marathon. The route departs South Parade Pier and to the end of the Hayling Billy Line and back again taking in the sites of Langstone Harbour.
The results for IWRR:
Despite the challenging mixed terrain some of our runners managed a PB, massive congratulations for brilliant times!
