GILLY HILLY 1st November

This was a DRRL and Club Champ race and seeings as it is quite a little journey foe 7.5 miles of hills, a good few ladies went and did themselves very proud with good times and a 3rd place team win! Well done to all of you.

THAMES MEANDER MARATHON 7th November
On a very wet, muddy windy day, this race took place along the Thames from Kingston to Putney Bridge and back.  There is also the option of a half marathon as well and these races take place 3 times during the year, March, August and November.  You can also enter the "Triple Crown" and set yourself the challenge of running all 3 and receiving the "special award" at the end of the year.  I completed all 3 this year, as did Nick Marshall.  
156      Heather Khoshnevis        4.06.38     1st W55
223      Naomi Bennett               4.28.30                   (337 finishers)
 
CORNISH MARATHON 15th November
The Cornish Marathon is Cornwall's only all road marathon. The scenic circular out and back route which takes runners along the Draynes Valley, through the 'Poldark' country of Bodmin Moor, past King Arthur's legendary Dozmary Pool, Du Maurier's Jamaica Inn at Bolventor and back along the Fowey Valley, taking in a climb to Foredown between miles 24 and 25, which most runners will remember for a long time, and not just for the fabulous views !  The whole route has many challenging hills, but it was very well supported and feed stations every 3 miles with  many supporters offering goodies along the route.  A great excuse for a weekend away!  LIttledown Harriers ladies came away with 3 trophies....thus spreading out "orange glow" one more time!!  We all had great runs on a tough but thoroughly enjoyable race....we even got rewarded with a hoody...a medal....a goody bag with chocolate and crisps....and then a free cornish pasty with endless tea!!  Phew!!
95       Caroline Horder                  3.42.26        1st F60

Well it's now the festive month and all the League and Club Champ races (apart from a possible marathon or parkrun) are over so you can all let your hair down and have some some on the run...or town!!!  Well done ladies...we maintained our position in the League, it was oh so close with Lytchett, one point in it....but the Orange Team prevailled !  Well done!  I wonder if we can make it to 3rd position next year!!! :-) No Pressure!!!!
 
1st January will see the 1st DRRL  and Club Champ race for 2016 (oh, so soon) but more importantly...if you simply cannot drag yourself out for the actual race (you will be forgiven by your Captain!) Please do come along after to the bar at the Broadstone Leisure centre at 12 as it will be the Award Ceremony for the 2015 league and Littledown do have quite a contingent of runners collecting awards in their age catagories, namely ... David Wilson 50-54, Mark Goodwin 40-44, Luke Dowsett  U21, Helen Gilbert  40-44, Heather Khoshnevis 55-59 and also Helen Gilbert and Rob Jones will be collecting awards for top runners for the club.  We have never had this many so I think a big "Orange Cheer" is definitely deserved!
 
Well done everyone for supporting the club in 2015 and having some great fun racing or training.  Enjoy the rest of the year and see you all soon :-)
