March 2017

Apologies for the late report this month guys... well done to all those who raced, and good luck to all those training for Spring marathons - Spring marathon season is upon us! Next DRRL race is in fact the North Dorst Village Marathon - a beautiful scenic marathon at which I hope to see many of you there! CC and DRRL races 2017


Wimborne 20 (5th March) - 257 finishers

A good harrier turnout for the 2nd year of this race that fits into the calendar nicely as a tester for those on Spring marathon training plans and is part of the Club Championship… well done all

Barcelona Marathon (12th March)

Thanks go to Graham for submitting this race report: "The route for Barcelona Marathon 2017 begins at Avenida de La Reina Maria Cristina and leads out to Plaza Espanya. You then wind around a 25 mile flat circuit of Barcelona which have some of the most famous monuments en route. The first half was shaded but soon warmed up once we headed towards the sea front. The atmosphere was amazing with plenty of different types of music to keep us going all around the course.  Well done to Glenn on a PB, beats his previous best from when he was 21"

Glenn Batt 3:45:21 PB
Peter Barton 4:35:22  


Queen Elizabeth Spring Marathon (26th March)

 Thanks again Graham for submitting this race report: "This tough marathon is run entirely on a half-marathon course within the country park (and the adjacent, aptly named "Head Down" plantation) this is a trail run along well kept trails.  There were some hilly challenges that took us on journey of over 500 metres of elevation gain over a 13 mile loop. Once away from the busy front part of the country park, you find yourself in the quiet peaceful forest.  Later, as you are on the last high point before you drop down to the finish area, there are long views through the clearings to the Solent and Isle of Wight."

Name Time
Graham Malt 3:57:25


Upcoming races:

  • Rotary Quarter Marathon (CC) - 15th April
  • North Dorset Village Marathon (DRRL) - 30th April
  • Lymington 10k (CC) - 14th May

As always, if I have missed you from the results (or made any errors!), or you have done any other races or PBs not reported on please let me know. Also feel free to submit any race reports to be published in next months report.

Race hard guys! (but not so hard you get injured like me...!)
