Congratulations to Shaun Cross, first across the line on a humid, windy night that made for challenging conditions and unusually, almost half the field were outside their handicap time. It was tough out there. We even tempted the heavens to open briefly as we sat down for the club photo.
Results now updated with standings after 2 races.
The final race of the series is on 3rd September.
The Summer League is back on Wednesday 11th June over one of the most scenic courses in the series through Sherwood Forest. Starting at Worksop College, it’s just under 5 miles mainly on road, with about a mile of track through the forest on the way back. We’re aware that there is another sporting event happening that night but just press the record button or head to the establishment of your choice for the second half!
We’ve had a terrific Grand Prix this year with some of the warmest races we’ve seen in years. Thanks to all of you who took part and to the very many HPRC members who made it happen. We hope to see you all back next year.
Congratulations to our series winners, Cameron Smith and Jamie Whittaker. Jamie also led home the victorious Erewash womens team and Formula One took the mens team prize.

We have a new monthly club calendar for you to show what’s going on when this month. We’ll shortly find it a permanent home on the website but for now you can enjoy it just by reading the full blog post where you’ll find the link to it.
The wind blew!
It came from the east for once, but we had a good tailwind for this year’s Dream Mile and we had some great times. Fastest was RAC’s Marlon Dunkley, with Oliver Matharu the fastest HPRC runner and the only one to break 5 minutes.

We had a terrific turnout in near perfect conditions for the first lake handicap of the year. Congratulations to the winner, Joon Ho and to Christine Heaton who bettered her own V50 club record with a PB. See the results.
