After the snow postponed and removed Fleet half from the Grand Prix and Club Championship, a reduced 26.2 team was present. Well done to the runners who made it, especially to Steves Ramek and Stopford who ran only a week after competing at the London marathon.

The 2017/18 Grand Prix season has drawn to a close, with 124 members competing over 11 races. The competition is designed to test runners over the full spectrum of events, from the club mile to the Reigate half, from the Titsey 10k trail race to the Maidenhead Easter 10, runners are required to adapt to the changeable terrain and conditions.
This year saw the overall positions changing up until the finish line on the final race at Maidenhead. Congratulations to everyone who took part and let’s hope for another fantastic contest over the 2018/19 season.

Following the announcement of the rescheduled date for the Fleet Half Marathon, we have decided to drop this race from the Grand Prix calendar for this year. This is on the basis that a significant proportion of entrants will be running marathons in April, and we do not wish to put our members under any undue pressure or stress. As such, the 2017/18 GP season will be based on the best 8 out of 11 races, and there will be no half marathon club championship.
A date for your diary – This year we will once again be hosting a team relay at Imber Court, Molesey
The event will take place on the evening of Tuesday 26th June and will see local clubs invited to race 1.6 miles around Imber Court. Each team of 4 runners will compete in various categories. Last year the event was very well received by the other clubs and is now established as a replacement for the Horton Park event.
26.2 RRC will be entering teams but we will also need marshals and helpers for various roles before the event is held and on the evening itself.
The race begins at 7pm and follows a flat all terrain course around Imber Court and along the River Mole.
Imber Court will be putting on a BBQ for the post run social event and there is the cheap club bar available as well
More details to follow nearer the time.
