Summer League Race 2 (Flowserve, Newark)

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!

Lake Handicap Results

Victory in the first Lake Handicap of the year went to Glyn Sawford, three whole minutes ahead of his handicap time in conditions that could charitably be described as “refreshing”. Newcomer Marc Foulder was second and Victoria Webster third. Oliver Matharu was fastest round the course in 15:58. It’s early days yet and there’s plenty of time to improve your time over the summer.

The next race is on Monday 15th July.

Welcome Chairman Jogger

Jogger

Thanks to all of you who came along to our AGM last night. We’ll straighten out the details in due course, but in the meantime we’ll go with our new committee which will be headed as Chair by Neil Devonport, universally AKA Jogger (ironically of course!) Our thanks go to Debbie Smith, who stepped down as Chair after three years to take on a voluntary role with England Athletics. Neil passes on the baton as men’s captain to Will Meredith. We also welcome John Partridge to the committee as Publicity Officer, a role he has started to take on in recent months, and we thank Glyn Sawford and Kev Ford, who are also stepping down this year.

It’s something of an end of an era, as Glyn has given the committee many years’ service, variously as Grand Prix Director, Membership Secretary and editor of Running Free, as well as providing many words of wisdom from his years of experience. No doubt Glyn will be going off to spend more time with his fell shoes, if that’s possible!

Your new committee are:

Chair – Neil Devonport
Vice Chair – Tom Davies
Treasurer – William Scott
Minutes Secretary – Aimee Palace
Events Secretary – Steve Tupholme
Social Secretary – Ann Gould and Emma Cupitt
Publicity Officer – John Partridge
Membership Secretary – Steve Eatherington
Kit Secretary – John Sutherns
Women’s Captain – Jean Inglis
Men’s Captain – Will Meredith
General Member – Keith Jamieson
General Member – Gary Cragg
General Member – Christine Heaton

We still have one vacancy for a general member, who the committee can co-opt, so if you’re interested, have a word with one of us or email info@hprcrun.co.uk.

 

Storming Start to the Summer League

What a terrific start we had to the summer league at Hexgreave Park! An excellent turnout saw the club storm into the lead in all the four main categories, senior and vet men and women. In a reflection of our strength in depth, our B, C and even D teams placed creditably and in the vet mens category we even fielded H and I teams.

Let’s keep the momentum going and have another great night at the next race on 29th May at the Flowserve in Balderton, Newark.

Full results are on the Notts AAA website. Ignore the overall tabs, they seem to be incorrect.

East Mids Cross Country – Lots of Bling!

After the final race of the East Mids season at Long Eaton, both of our teams came home with a hat-full of trophies for the series.

In the exceptionally flat Long Eaton race, Oliver Matharu was again just pipped for the win and Gabrielle Caveney also grabbed a second place. Our ladies took three of the top five places.

In the series, our ladies won both the senior and vet trophies and our men the vets trophy. With the various B, C and D categories to add for each, we came home with a total of nine trophies!

Thanks to all of you who turned out throughout the series and thanks as ever for all the hard work from the organisers and in particular Shirley Starr.
