From our own Steve Tupholme, Notts AAA Road Running Committee Chairman and Secretary:
Thanks to a great turnout at the final race at Teversal we managed to win three of the four categories in the series – a fantastic effort. We won the senior and vets mens categories and the senior womens, our womens vets claiming third.
On an individual level, Dan Bagley was third overall in the mens series and kudos also to Katie Holmes who was second in the V55 and Neil Cooper who was third in the V35. John Oldfield was the only V75 to complete the series and Christine Oldfield one of only two women to complete the series in the womens V65 category.
Full results are on the Notts AA website.
Our senior men and women both took another win at Worksop and hold healthy leads going into the final race at Teversal on 7th August. Our vets teams are both in very tight tussles for series victory. The men saw their series lead cut back dramatically by Mansfield to just 11 points, and the women have slipped narrowly into second place by a mere 6 points. So it’s all to play for, let’s make sure we get the best possible turnout at Teversal!
The Worksop results are now out on the Notts AAA website.
The Summer League resumes this Wednesday, 12th June at the National Water Sports Centre, Holme Pierrepont. It’s a flat 5 mile course taking in the path around the lake and the lane. Let’s keep our great start to the season going with another strong turnout. If you’re not running, we still need help with marshaling. Please note that there is a £2 charge for parking levied by the Water Sports Centre which we have no control over.
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.
As the weather turns a little warmer, the summer league begins on Wednesday 24th April at Hexgreave Park near Bilsthorpe. It’s a multi-terrain race with a mixture of road, trail and grass. The address is Hexgreave Park, Bilsthorpe NG22 8LS.
Let’s have a great turnout for the first race of the summer.

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!
The Summer League is back on Wednesday 11th June over one of the most scenic courses in the series through Sherwood Forest. Starting at Worksop College, it’s just under 5 miles mainly on road, with about a mile of track through the forest on the way back. We’re aware that there is another sporting event happening that night but just press the record button or head to the establishment of your choice for the second half!
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.

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!
