Lake Handicap Results

Congratulations to Ann Moorhouse, winner of this year’s first race of the lake handicap series. Ann came in a whopping 4 minutes 11 ahead of her handicap time. Victoria Webster was an almost-as-impressive 3:44 under her handicap with Stuart Vickers not far behind.

On a lovely and unusually still night, there were lots of great performances to start the year.

The next race is on 18th July.

Summer League 11th May

The next summer league race is our own, which is run on a very fast 5 mile course around the lake and along the lane, so it’s an excellent opportunity for a PB if the conditions are right.

We already have lots of marshals, so thanks to everyone who has volunteered.

Let’s have another great turnout!

AGM 18th May

The club AGM will be at 8pm on Wednesday 18th May.

After the success of our virtual AGMs over the past 2 years, the Committee have agreed to continue doing so.

In the meantime you can find all the details here.

The various reports have now been uploaded.

Cliffs Handicap

Congratulations to Marc Faulder, who won the Cliffs Handicap a mere 2 seconds off his handicap time. Chairman Jogger was in second place just 7 seconds off with Karen Long third at 18 seconds.

In the space of just 3 years the club Marc has now been the holder of both of the venerable club trophies, following his Lake Handicap triumph in 2019.

Victory to the Men

The V50 men finally broke the ladies’ 6-race winning streak with victory in the annual challenge race for the first time since 2013. First across the line was Naomi Elliott, followed by Hannah Matharu, but the men packed well in the midfield and a navigational error may have played its part…

Well done to all who took part.

Squares NIGHT 2021

Our Annual Squares night will be held on Monday 13th December 2021 at the Poppy and Pint PH, Pierrepont Road, Lady Bay.

Due to the current Covid situation, we’d be grateful if you could take a Covid test before attending.

Please do not attend if you have any Covid symptoms.

This is a great night raising money for charity. It follows the Senior Ladies V Men’s V50 Challenge. This annual race was started many years ago, when club member Bernard Jarvis unearthed a piece of research which suggested that a senior lady ought to be of a similar standard to a V50 man. We’ve been putting it to the test every year since in a variety of formats. It now takes the form of a 5K race around Lady Bay, before Squares Night.

Runners need to arrive a little early to collect their numbers from the main building at HPP and then jog out to Skylarks which is where we start at 7.15pm. Volunteers from amongst non-racers are always welcome as marshals. Don’t forget we can use the shower facilities afterwards at HPP.

Now, for those club members asking “What is Squares night?” In previous years, members would buy ‘squares’ and if your numbered ‘square’ was drawn, you win a prize. However, last year due to Covid and members unable to attend club nights to buy squares, we set up a charity page for members to donate online and names were drawn out of a hat at the HPRC Committee meeting. This proved to be really popular and a more efficient way of collecting donations. So, instead of buying squares – we would like you to make a donation on our Just Giving page.

We have no limit as we understand times are difficult, so every pound we can raise counts. For every pound donated your name goes into the hat. So the more you donate the more chance you have of winning one of the fantastic prizes. ALL donations go to the charity.

The Charity we have chosen to support this year is Cerebral Palsy Sport. This fantastic charity provides opportunities for people with Cerebral Palsy to be physically active and enjoy sport. For more information please visit www.cpsport.org

A Just Giving page has been set up for HPRC members to donate to this charity and the link is: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/hprc

Also, on the night there are various presentations and, although no certificates will be given out for the Club Championship this year, there are other presentations for fastest marathon, fell champs, track champs and the Ernie Berry trophy. There will be no London marathon draw this year.

Squares night is a great opportunity for ALL members of HPRC to come together for a bit of a social! There will be a survey sent out in the weekly email nearer the time, to confirm your attendance.
Many thanks in advance for your kind donations and we hope to see you all there!

Stay safe and happy running!
