Sunday 25th March was a fabulous day out for the club at the Desford 5. We had 31 runners in the race and there were many others out support around the course and taking photos. The next league races coming up are:
13th May – Race 3 – Bosworth Half – Entries Open
27th May – Race 4 – Kibworth 6 – Race is full but places can be swapped, so ask around the club
3rd June – Race 5 – Swithland 6 – Entries open tomorrow night (see above)
Friday 6th April saw the first “#WeRunLE10” event in Hinckley. This is a 5 mile social run starting in Castle Street, Hinckley on the first Friday of every month at 6:30pm. It is free and open to all by registering at we-run.org.uk. There are pacers with groups of 8-9, 9-10, 10-11 and 11-12 minute miles. This is not an HRC event, but was organised by our Emma and lots of HRC members took part in the first one. Next one is 4th May.
Geoff’s Track Marathon
More amazing stuff from Geoff! On 11th March, Geoff Oliver competed in the Barry Marathon Track Race consisting 105 laps of a 400m track. Our 84 year old club president completed the race in a time of 4:55:37. With the spring marathon season right on us, good luck to everyone in the club doing a marathon or big race in the next few weeks, all that hard training over the winter will pay off!
