Please review Holme Pierrepont RC policies below.
In these strange and worrying times where races are cancelled and even social runs are a big no no, our friends at RAC have shared a great idea that will boost morale and be FUN!
Come and join us in the CoViD-19 HP Virtual Relay! Register HERE
HOW IT WORKS:
There are 2 teams – Odds and Evens. Your year of birth dictates which team you are in. For example, if you’re born in 1980, you are an “Even”. You get the idea? The relay kicks off on Sunday 22/03/20 (hopefully) with a random name picker app selecting the first 2 runners. …We may nominate 2 captains or may not!
Where can you run (or jog, skip, walk, hop if you’re injured!) I hear you ask?… anywhere – if you can do it outside – great! If not – on a treadmill (not in a public gym!), around your backyard, your living room, up and down the stairs – whatever is possible for you!
The relay will continue until the virus ends or we get bored. At that point, The winning team will be the one with most distance covered.
- The first runners for each team will be selected by a random name selector (already done). If you are picked, please confirm that you can run that day. Don’t worry if you can’t, you’ll get another chance and you can just select the next runner in your team from the google sheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14ENc3nIVkcImF1HAwBjkm0aAjcT-i0-6FoOKC_XYVYU/edit?usp=sharing.
- Each runner runs for 19 minutes (aka a “Hardcastle”) and records the distance covered – via Strava, GPS or “old skool” (OS map and a piece of cotton).
- Each runner MUST carry a baton. The sillier, the better. There probably will or will not be prizes…
- Once a runner completes their run, they must post pictures of themselves and their baton plus the distance covered on Facebook (or email Lisachan@live.com, who will post it) then update their time in the google sheet (in step 1) and also nominate some one on the same team from the sheet – if they don’t nominate someone, Lisa can use the random name picker to select the next runner.
- The team that has covered the most ground at the end of the challenge, wins the much-coveted Covid-19 trophy!
- In the event of a draw, no one will care.
- Each team must include athletes of all ages, genders and haircuts.
- Each team can “play their joker”. That runner gets double distance!
- Daftness is encouraged.
- It is a competition, but no one cares who wins.
- Expect the rules to change mid-relay.
Don’t forget the our annual dinner is on 25th January 2020 at the new town friendly venue of Alea Casino (108 Upper Parliament St, Nottingham NG1 6LF)

Also, don’t forget to let us know your menu choice if you’ve already paid by filling in the google forms HERE
What an amazing turnout from the club for the 2nd Summer League race at the Flowserve Sports & Social Club in Newark on Wednesday. This race is now a certified 10k road race, which meant everyone had to shuffle back a fair bit on the night to accommodate what seemed like a record turnout! This made the out and back course seem even narrower than usual but this didn’t daunt our crew. PBs were recorded by many and the results speak for themselves with HP coming up top for all four Senior and Vet teams for both Men and Women on the night and in the overall standings so far.
WELL DONE EYERYONE!

A big thank you to everyone that came and ran, cheered and/or supported the races this year as without you putting in the hard effort we wouldn’t have been able to achieve these fantastic results! Also a huge cheer needs to go to Jean and Jogger for being the amazing captains they are! 😊
Now that the Summer League races are over, don’t think that we can rest on our laurels as XC is just around the corner – bring on the Freddos!
With 2 out of 5 races completed, HP have performed outstandingly yet again, with the men leading in both the senior and vets category and our ladies coming a close 2nd in both! This means that overall our men’s team are currently in 1st (senior) & 2nd (vet) place and our ladies are currently standing 2nd in both senior and vet.
Detailed results can be found here
Remember, these races are free to all club members – You just need to turn up wearing your club top (and preferably the rest of your running kit!). Also, don’t worry if you don’t think you’re fast enough to take part, in fact the more club members take part in the races, the better it is for the club regardless of speed, so please have a go if you haven’t been before as they’re really fun social events in some really excellent locations!

(Apologies if your results aren’t showing – this would be because you didn’t put your team as Holme Pierrepont when you registered for the race!)
We had a spectacular turnout for the Retford half this Sunday (11/03/2018) and it paid off with PBs smashed by Christine Heaton and Louise Read and first in category prizes awarded to Kevin Ford and Derek Poole, with Derek only having just run a full marathon two weeks prior!
