Mens November 2014 Race Report from Steve 'Captain' Williams

Written by 

A big Harrier welcome to your new role as Men's Captain Steve. I will set you up with your own email and photo very soon in the meantime here is your inaugural comprehensive race report - Barry


Well... here goes my first monthly report as the Harriers men's team captain...

So, firstly I want to say I am proud to be the men's team captain, and I hope to see lots of Harrier men (and women!) pushing hard at Club Championship Details and Dorset Road Race League  Details races throughout 2015!!

The Wimborne 10 was a key race for the club this month, and it was great to see so many Harriers on a drizzly and grey day. It was good running conditions, and our mens team did great finishing 2nd - saving us from relegation - well done guys! This was a great event, and the mass of cakes at the end were a good reward for a hard run (and especially the hill at the end)... I know there were also a few PBs (and hangovers!) on the day... good running guys.

The 2nd of the Winter Series 5k was quite a tough one (or maybe it was just me?!) there was a quite a head wind for half the course, but we still had a good turnout... and some good times on the board...

Boscombe 10k was a pretty abysmal day for the weather... and this made the course slippery in places - but as usual it was very well marshalled (and well done the Harriers who assisted with the marshalling)... it was good to see some new faces, and another good turnout from the Harrier men.


Upcoming races I encourage you to attend are:

3rd Poole Runners 5k Winter Series (from Boscombe pier) - Friday 12th December @7.30pm... this is a good blast on a quick course and has good PB potential (depending on the wind strength on the seafront!)Full details

Broadstone Quarter Marathon (30th anniversary event) - starts at 10:30am... on New Years Day! This is the first DRRL race of 2015... and there will be entries on the day at £10 for club runners Race details

If I have made any errors or omissions in the results please let me know. Also let me know before month end if you run an event that’s not in the Club Championship CC or DRRL so it can be included in the monthly report.
