Ladies January 2016 Race Report

Written by 

It all begins here!  The end of the first month.  I hope you have all enjoyed the lovely weather.....not long for Spring now!!

 
BROADSTONE QUARTER MARATHON  - 1st January
A very good way to start off the New Year and there were plenty of Male and Female orange vests there!  This was 1st of the DRRL and Club Championship races.....so points are already being collected!!  Weather was good and I  think everyone enjoyed the race and did well :-)
111    Helen Gilbert                     47.49
162    Heather Khoshnevis         50.25
226    Tracy Ashley                     54.34
265    Amanda Shepheard         56.18
282    Louise Harper                   58.27
290    Gemma Skinner                59.08
298    Sarah Heath                    1.00.07
301    Maxine Bennett               1.00.12
 
THE DIRTY DEVIL STAMPEDE 17th January
This multi terrain run of 5k, 10k or 15k (1, 2 or 3 loops) takes you around the iconic location of the only Tank training ground in the country, Bovington Camp.  The Dirty Devil Stampede is held over the Army’s vehicle testing tracks so expect it to be dirty, gritty and interesting! You encounter trails, hills, mud, sand, a lot of water, the crocodile pit, scramble nets and the knife edge!  As of today, 1st Feb, there are still no results for this, so Im sorry but I cannot list all you Dirty Devils and your times!!
 
ROK THE STONES TRAIL MARATHON - 31st January
The Rok the Stones Trail Marathon is set in the beautiful Chew Valley, about 10 miles from Bristol and Bath. The Stone Circles behind the church form the 3rd largest collection of prehistoric standing stones in England and include the second largest circle (after Avebury). The route consists of three very different and testing loops from Stanton Drew Village Hall, which is in a small village in this quiet and beautiful corner of north-east Somerset, about 10 miles from Bristol and Bath. Each loop returns to the village hall allowing entrants to get a hot drink & food, loo stop and maybe even put on dry socks, before heading out again. The majority of the route is off-road, following paths and tracks, and varies from flat riverbank to surprisingly steep climbs. Several parts of the route are very muddy in winter. The total distance is around 27.2 miles, with over 2700 feet of ascent. The event will be run under UK Athletics Rules (TRA permit number 216) and is listed with the 100 Marathon Club.  Despite all this.....it was extremely muddy and was infact 29 miles!!  Three hardy Harriers ladies and Greg Hawkins attended!!
77th       Naomi Bennett          7.20
78th       Julie White                 7.20
86th       Kay Morris                 7.25     (93 finishers)
 
Not many races that I know of for January, but all those that did, well done for kickstarting the year!  The next DRRL and Club Champ race is The Blackmore Vale Half Marathon on the 7th February, closing date for entries is 5th Feb and there are no entries on the day, so if you want to enter this.....ACT NOW!! www.bvlhm.yolasite.com The next DRRL and Club Champ races are also in February, the Bournemouth 10miles, on the 28th, again, there are no entries on the day and there is a 500 limit, so if you want to be in it, then you need to ACT FAST! www.bournemouthac.co.uk
 
 
That's all for January so I shall look forward to seeing what February brings for you all (2016 CC & DRRL Races) ......Run....Recover...Run some more and maybe Rest!!....but most of all...Enjoy :-)
