“The routes are based around the common – I wasn’t sure how many people would want a longer route so I have made the ‘shorter route’ slightly longer for those who want a ‘medium length’ run after weekend marathons.
The longer route involves heading back into the common and back out up the ‘Outwards’ before heading back to base.
Hopefully these routes meet everyones’s needs.”
The LRRL Winter League season for 2015/2016 came to an end this weekend with Desford 6. It was nice to see new member Stuart Mayfield taking on his first league race as well as Ian Sylvester and Peter Abrahamson join us again after a break from league racing. All in all we had a total of 10 ladies and 14 men competing on the day.
Hinckley runners were mostly positive about their performances on the day, achieving quite a few PBs on what is for some the last race before taking on a spring marathon, no less!
Male runner of the day was awarded to Gordon Landsburgh and female runner of the day was awarded to Charlotte Sinclair. Well done!
It was a warm and sunny Sunday that saw the last of the cross country races for the 2015/2016 season taking place at Foremark Reservoir and its beautiful surroundings. The course was not as muddy as some of the other courses of the season but it did not disappoint with its tough hills!
For this last race, we had a team of 8 men and a team of 5 ladies competing. Helen Wilebore was awarded female runner of the day and Ben Masser male runner of the day.

Well done to everyone who took part in this year’s cross country, be it once or every race. We hope you will join us again when the season starts in October and no doubt you will have inspired others to give the cross country a go with all your achievements this year!
Stilton 7 counted a good number of Hinckley runners considering that quite a few other Hinckley runners decided to take part in the Coventry half marathon to get an idea about how their marathon training was progressing. Needless to say there were a lot of PBs and happy runners after both races!
We had 10 male and 10 female Hinckley runners at Stilton 7. Male runner of the day was awarded to Joe Langham and female runner of the day was awarded to Erica Fisher. Well done!
