Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud – The East Mids Continues

We proved on Sunday that we’re a club of mudlarks if nothing else, taking three of the top 4 places in the men’s race and two of the top 10 in the ladies, on the way to sweeping to victory in three of the four senior and vets categories, our ladies vets taking a second place. Oli Matharu led the men’s field home followed by Phil Nind and Hannah Sampson took second in the ladies race.

That’s left us in good shape for the series, as we now lead the senior men’s category and are tied at the top in the vet men’s, senior ladies and vet ladies. So there’s all to play for when we resume in February.

Great Start to the East Mids Series

For the first time any of us can remember, we had winners in both the mens and womens races at the first race of the East Mids series at Bramcote. Take a bow, Oliver Matharu and Claire Lewis. They were backed up by strong performances all through the field so our senior men and vet ladies took a win and our vet men and senior ladies a second place. Our B teams are handily placed too, so there’s going to be all to play for in this year’s series which is packed into the next few weeks.

There’s no let up in the action, as the next race is next Sunday which we’re hosting at Holme Pierrepont. As ever, if you can’t run and are able to marshal, please help out on the course.

Victory to the Ladies

It was victory again to the ladies in the annual challenge against the V50 men last night. A last-minute change to the course was needed due to an accident on Radcliffe Road, so it was run over a roughly 2 mile out and back this year. Well done to everyone for getting the race on. It also gave us a chance to test our new chip timing system which we’re hoping to introduce to the Grand Prix next year.

There wasn’t much in it, with the ladies winning by 21 seconds.

Hill Sessions Are Back

As the autumn leaves start falling, it’s a sure sign that the start of the hill sessions is upon us from this Thursday, 24th October at Selby Road. It’s best to be well warmed up for the session to avoid injury, so we recommend running out with the group from HP at 7pm. Otherwise, you can meet the group at Selby road for a 7.25 start.
