Entries for the 2020 Holme Pierrepont Grand Prix are now open.
This year’s series features a new 5 mile course at Nottingham University, the familiar 4 miles at Rushcliffe Country Park and the fast and flat 5K on the Victoria Embankment and the 10K to finish the series at Holme Pierrepont.
We’ll be supporting the Cerebral Palsy Charity.
We’ve spent a few days running through the results again and checking video of the final race.
It can be a complicated process, so we should thank all those who’ve spent their many hours getting the results done in the first place and compiling the final set of results.
So here are the final results. The full set is on this year’s results page.
Holme Pierrepont Results
The Grand Prix is over for another year. Thanks to all of you who took part and the amazing crew of HP volunteers who made it happen.
Congratulations to our series winners Marlon Dunkley and Lucy Gossage and to Beeston and Rushcliffe who took the team prizes.
Holme Pierrepont and full series results will be posted here later today when we have them.
After a slight hiccup this morning, here are the Embankment results. Ben Plummer from Barrow Runners was first across the line, with Marlon Dunkley still leading the men’s series. Lucy Gossage again took the women’s race, further extending her series lead.
The final race of the series is on Thursday night at Holme Pierrepont. There are still places left for this fast, flat 10K.
On a lovely night for running at Colwick we had our first Holme Pierrepont winner for many a year – take a bow Philip Nind. Rushcliffe’s Marlon Dunkley extended his lead in the men’s series, and Lucy Gossage took another win to extend her lead over former winner Katie Lomas.
The next race is a flat, measured 5K along the Victoria Embankment on Tuesday 2nd July. There are still places available for the remaining two races of the series.
Updated Colwick Results
This year’s Grand Prix got underway at a soggy Rushcliffe Country Park on Tuesday night. In the men’s race, Mark Powell of Leicester Coritanian just got the better of a close race with Marlon Dunkley of Rushcliffe AC. In the women’s race, Lucy Gossage won convincingly, with former series winner Katie Lomas more than a minute behind.
The second race is at Colwick on Thursday, there are still entries available for the Colwick race and the rest of the series.
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.
