Imber Court Relays – results

We had another fantastic evening of running at the Imber Court relays on the 26th June. We had 44 teams participating in what was a really exciting event. Runners lined up at the finish area to cheer in their team mates which heightened the atmosphere and made for some truly memorable finishes. 

Alex Dunbar from the Up and Running Social Running Group, ran all four legs himself. Ollie Garrod from Epsom and Ewell  was the quickest runner on the night completing his leg in 8:04. 

Full results can be found here

A big thank you to all the volunteers and Race Director John Bennett who made sure the evening ran smoothly.  We hope all the runners had a great evening and we are looking forward to seeing you all next year. 

 

GP2 – Harry Hawkes 10 Mile – A heck of a hot race!

Club members were out in force on Sunday 24th June 2018 as they stormed their way around the Harry Hawkes 10 mile race. The Harry Hawkes is a classic  run over a fast, flat, and scenic course that offers great PB opportunities.  The route winds its way round the Kingston upon Thames Marketplace,  the pretty village of Thames Ditton and from Kingston bridge to Hampton Court along the Thames.

52 of our runners completed the course and earned themselves well deserved points on the GP league table. 1st over the line for the men was Alastair McGeoch-Williams in 1:00:53 with Tim Bartholomew (1:01:28) in 2nd, and Joseph Gonzalez (1:01:44) in 3rd. 1st over the line for the women was Victoria Haslam in 1:13:10 with Daisy Street (1:20:40) in 2nd, and Kirstie Mitchell (1:20:48) in 3rd. 

There were many other notable performances and PBs all round. It was particularly fantastic to see many of the club’s ladies out in force – a huge increase in numbers compared to last year’s 10 mile GP race. 

Congratulations to everyone who endured the heat! The ice cream van and Ann’s legendary cakes were certainly a welcome sight at the finish line!

GP1 2018 Club Mile Championship – Pre Register

On Wednesday 13th June  we will be hosting the annual club mile championship at the Harrier Centre, Poole Road, Ewell, KT19 9RY. Please aim to arrive by 7:10pm for a warm-up and be ready to start the mile at 7:20pm.

The race will mostly likely be run in three waves this year, subject to numbers – slower (10:00+), intermediate (7:00-9:59), faster (sub-7:00). You can run in any wave.  To get an idea of how many people will be in each wave, and where the cut-off time will be, please pre-register by filling in our registration form.

I believe the track entry fee is £2.70 (bring £3 to be sure) which is payable in cash at the main reception on the night.

If you are unable to run, we would welcome volunteers to help with timing and results. You can use the registration form to specify that you would like to volunteer.

Reminder of the GP rules:

In order for their performance to score in a Grand Prix event, members must visibly wear the official club top (vest or t-shirt). If a member is new to the club they must have a current kit order in place for a club top to be delivered in the next order window to be eligible to score  GP points. (This decision will be at the discretion of club GP Organisers)

Street Orienteering – Wednesday 6th June

With the annual competition restricting our access to the tennis club next week we are going to be doing a different activity from a different venue. We will be doing a StreetO (Street Orienteering) evening from the Victoria pub in Surbiton.

This event is open to the whole club. You will have up to 60 minutes to run as far as you like visiting as many markers on a map as possible. The navigation uses a line map of Surbiton so is simple. If you are worried about distance or navigation you can run with others and can keep to a short and simple route.

Race HQ

The race will be based at The Victoria, 28 Victoria Road, Surbiton KT6 4JT. We will have an area in the beer garden where we will co-ordinate the race from. Results will be announced shortly after all competitors return.

LOCATION Surbiton
ADDRESS The Victoria, 28 Victoria Road, KT6 4JT
LATITUDE/LONGITUDE 51.3921, -0.3069

MAPS Google MapsOpenStreetMap

Race Details

REGISTRATION Between 1900 and 1915
START TIMES Between 1915 and 1930

The Street-O format has clues located at various points on a map. You have 60 minutes to visit as many of these as possible, in any order, and return to the finish. You may return early if you wish.

You can take part as a single runner or in groups of up to three people. Everyone in the group must stay together at all times.

This guide provides general information about street orienteering (details from South London Orienteers).

Don’t forget to bring a pen to write down your answers to the clues as you go around and a watch so that you aren’t late back!
