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!

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.

 

2019 Club Road Championships

The awards for 2018 were made only last night but the 2019 season is already underway. More than 70 HPRC members completed the Turkey Trot last Sunday to get the new season off to a flying start. It already looks like many of the age groups will be just as competitive as last year. Don’t forget that if you want your result to count from any certified distance road race (5M, 10km, 10M, HM or M) then it must be in Running Free. Use the button at the bottom of this page to enter it.

Club Champs close soon

John Oldfield writes – The Club Championships close on Sunday week, December 2nd. Any certified races up to and including that date are counted. Age groups this year are SW, SM, then 35, 45, 55, 65, 75. To be included, your result must be in Running Free (via the Google sheet). I’ll take results from the sheet up to close of play on the 5th.

Hill Sessions are Back

Pete Savage writes…

The annual winter treat of running up and down Selby Rd counting lampposts will return on Thursday 25th October.

This year to ensure HP Reception doesn’t look like an off-putting ghost town we’ve adjusted the times a little. We will be leaving reception at 7pm for a gentle warm up jog to Selby Rd. This should allow more members time to join in the jog as well as giving anyone new on a Thursday a better idea of the usual turnout. This means that anyone who must go straight to Selby Rd should aim to be there for 7.25pm.

As the winter goes on I’ll keep my eye on the number of reps we’re doing so that we don’t finish too late. If you are new to the club these sessions are structured so all abilities can take part so don’t worry about being too slow and it’s impossible for you to be too fast. Running short reps at speed, or interval training, particularly uphill has been proven to have positive benefits for your speed when racing etc. There’s no need to come every week but the more often you come the greater improvement you should see.

The mechanics of how the sessions work are explained at the start of each one so you can join in any week but essentially if you can run at all and count to 6 you’ve all the skills required. If you don’t want to join in with us there will always be “normal” group runs leaving HP at 7pm.

Bramley Apple Challenge 13th September

The annual Bramley Apple Challenge against our friends at NOTFAST, Newark Striders and Southwell is scheduled to take place at 6pm on Thursday 13th September at Caythorpe Cricket Club. The early start is to ensure that runners are finishing in good light.

HPRC are the current holders of the Bramley Apple Challenge trophy so we’d like as many members as possible to join us and held us retain it!

Improvers Course

Are you looking to run further than 5k? If you are, then our “5-10k; the easy way” course starting in September might be of interest. This course is aimed primarily at non-club members.
This is a six-week course designed specifically to help those who can already run 5km (e.g. a parkrun) in 30-35 minutes and want to extend their distance to 10km. An experienced set of run leaders will lead small groups, gradually increasing the distance each week, with a 10km, timed run on the final week. Both male and female leaders will be there each week, so there’s no need to be shy. The group size will be around 20, split into smaller groups of 3 to 5, each with its own run leader. We expect to be in daylight each week, so routes will vary. Some will be on roads, some on riverside tracks or a mixture of the two. Our group of friendly leaders are all trained, experienced runners so there are eager to help you achieve your goals. AND IT’S FREE!
