Isle of Wight Half Marathon

110 ladies & 224 men crossed the finish line of the Isle of Wight Half Marathon 2014. The club enjoyed a fantastic turnout of 31 runners, and also lots of club members offering their services to marshal and man water stations and cheer along the route. Which was very much appreciated!

Social Calendar

The IWRR hold an annual Awards Evening where we celebrate the achievements of the year. This is held at the Riverside Centre in November. Tickets are available from Love Running from two months before to include a buffet dinner and quiz. The main awards – Top Male, Female and Most Improved are voted for by club members.

The Club also hold a summer event usually in the form of a curry night, information can be found on the forum.

2014 saw the introduction of a club away day to Salisbury for the Salisbury 54321 group of races, the club arranged coach and ferry travel for all members. This was brilliant fun and sure to make an appearance in the 2015 calendar.
