Dream Mile 4th June

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.

Summer League update

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!

HP represent Nottinghamshire at the British Fell Championships

Three Holme Pierrepont RC members represented Nottinghamshire at last weekends British Inter Counties Fell Running Championships held as part of the Lad’s Leap race in Derbyshire.
Gina Granger, Sam Williams-Duncan and Tom Davies donned the green Notts vest and took on some of the countries finest fell runners (from much hillier counties) on a swelteringly hot day in the Peak District.
Nottinghamshire didn’t feature towards the top of the results tables but it was a great day out on the fells and excellent to have three club members representing the county.

HPRC goes to London!

It was a scorcher last Sunday (22/04/2018) at the Virgin London Marathon, but that didn’t stop our indefatigable and hardy HP crew! We had 26 official finishers that braved the sweltering heat that was the hottest London Marathon in history! Results and a few finish line videos are below:

Weekend running galore!

What a busy weekend of running we’ve had now that it seems that winter is finally over!

The parkrun challenge last Saturday 7th April was at Markeaton and a lucky 13 turned up to take part, somewhat coincidentally all 13 happened to be first-time parkrunners there too – must be a record of some sort!
