LYMINGTON 10K   10 May
 
This was one of our Club Championship races and was very well attended by a "sea of Orange".  This event is organised by the RNLI and the organisation was very impressive and it was a beautiful day with a beautiful route.  All round 10/10 !
The course follows country lanes and the flat coastal path along the sea wall with fantastic views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. Start and Finish in Woodside Park, Ridgeway Lane, Lymington, Hampshire.

MARLBOROUGH DOWNS CHALLENGE 33 MILES
 
The MDC is a beautiful yet challenging event, mostly off-road along tracks and footpaths. There is plenty of climbing - over 3000 feet for the 33 mile race.  The routes take in some of the finest Wiltshire countryside.  
Caroline Horder and Naomi Bennett completed this in 6.33.  Well done.  There is also a 20 mile route.
 
RICHMOND PARK MARATHON
 
The 26.2 mile course consists of 3 laps of Richmond Park. The first lap is 12 miles and follows a route around the perimeter of the park in addition to cutting through the centre of the park. The second and third laps follow the Tamsin trail, each lap being 7.1 miles long.  We encountered many deer and stag en route.  This was a lovely traffic free marathon with plenty of trees and bushes...very green!  Well organised.  Well worth a day out!!
