26.2 RRC Vs Stragglers Mob Match

Just a reminder that Sunday 3rd December is our annual mob match against the Stragglers and to confirm that the venue this year will be Surbiton British legion. With the numbers expected it was essential to find a slightly larger venue not only  for the social afterwards but also for safety purposes as starting the run from the club would prove troublesome.

We are just finalising the start/finish of the route and will post further details shortly but for now the main details are:

  • Registration opens at 9:30am
  • Entry fee is the usual £1 per head
  • Walkers will be going off at 10:30
  • Runners starting at 11:00
  • Please bring a raffle prize for afterwards, if everyone brings something then everyone should in theory leave with something
  • Remember friends and family are welcome
  • Please had over to the Facebook page event if you haven’t already done so and mark yourself as attending at the following link https://www.facebook.com/events/145270546090118/
  • If you are injured or just fancy a more leisurely please let us know if you can help out as a marhsall or member of the finish team

We look forward to seeing another great turnout again this year and hopefully retain the trophy for another year but those pesky Stragglers won’t be giving up without a fight! 

For those unsure of where the legion is it is on Hollyfield Road 2 minutes walk from Alexander recreation ground

Harry Hawkes 10 – Discount Code

We have been offered an additional discount code the the Harry Hawkes 10 in addition to the normal affiliated runner discount.

The race will be held on Sunday July 16th and will serve as a great warm up for the Captain’s BBQ to be held later that day.

The following information was provided by the organisers:

The Harry Hawkes is a 10 mile race located at Giggs Hill Green in Thames Ditton, with a start time of 09.30. This is the 34th staging of the run which is always popular with club runners. It’s a fast, flat course and a very scenic route with sections along the river and through woodland, although most of the course is on surfaced road.

We have team challenge trophies for both men and women’s teams and we are always keen to attract more clubs to take part. With this in mind we are offering a £3 discount to your club runners entering the race. The affiliated runner entry fee is £23 (plus £2 online booking fee). With the discount this drops to £20.

Details of the race can be found on our website: www.harryhawkes10.com

Dorking 10

The 2017/18 Grand Prix season kicked off with the Dorking 10 mile race on Sunday 4th June 2017. Part of the Surrey Road League Series, the course takes on a shorter lap, followed by a longer lap, over the undulating country lanes to the south of Box Hill. Despite a cool start to the day, the heat soon began to build, creating testing conditions for the runners with the course largely exposed to the elements.

Congratulations to all who took part, in a highly competitive field.
