Mens June 2017 Race Report

Dartmoor Discovery 32 miles Ultra (3rd June)

Thanks go to Graham for submitting this race report: "My first Dartmoor Discovery and not my last. Fantastic but stupidly hilly route and very well organised, besides the torrential rain greeting me for the final 6.5 miles

The race starts in Princetown, and follows a route passing through Dartmeet, Poundsgate, Newbridge, Ashburton, Buckland in the Moor, Widecombe in the Moor, and Postbridge, before making its way back to finish in Princetown.

You experience everything Dartmoor can offer, from stunning views, beautiful scenery, wild ponies and unpredictable weather. The course is not easy, it's a great way to test you both mentally and physically!"

Poole 10k (4th June) - 1106 finishers

A fairly warm day (as usual) for this race, I think the earlier start this year probably was a good thing so we avoided the heat of the afternoon! Another good Harrier turnout at this local race. Welll done all.

Puddletown Plod Half Marathon (11th June)

Thanks again to Graham for submitting the race report: "The ‘Plod’ is part of our CC and part of the DRRL. This is a lovely one lap race (out and back with an 8 mile loop), undulating in parts (not enough undulating in my opinion!) and of course the great selection of cakes afterwards. Well done for those who achieved a PB"

Hampshire Hoppit Trail Marathon (18th June)

Thanks to Graham for submitting this race report: "The Hampshire Hoppit marathon includes local sections of famous long distance footpaths, the Wayfarers Walk being one. This was a single-lap course that started and ended at Kingsclere on the Hampshire/Berkshire border, reaching some of the highest points in Hampshire with views across the county. There was occasional quiet road sections / road crossings. It was extremely hot with a very nasty Hill to start."

Purbeck 10k (23rd June)

A huge Harrier turnout for this popular race - and 2 Harriers in the top 4 finishers!! Wow. A tough undulating course, but lovely for us all to be able to cheer our fellow Harriers as it's an out and back course. Almost as impressive was the Harrier turnout at the pub afterwards - a Harriers pub takeover!!!

Giants Head Marathon and Sydling Hill Race (24th June)

Thanks again to Graham for submitting this race report: "Officially the best Marathon in the UK voted by Runnersworld Magazine 2014 saw a good turn out by the Harriers. The fifth running of the Giants Head Marathon in the beautiful village of Sydling St.Nicholas is a very, very challenging, hilly but beautiful course running through the Sydling and Cerne valleys running around and under the famous Cerne Giant. There was a beer tent, camping and a Hog Roast and an after party barn dance, AND not forgetting the famous but rather large ice creams. The next day there is a 7k and 3k bell race open to all ages"
