Mens August 2016 Race Report

Swanage Carnival 4 mile 'fun run' (4th August) - 203 finishers 

Apologies Greg for missing your email on this event... a late addition to the August report... "Don't be deceived by the term Fun Run. This was a competitive race designated as a championship race by one local club. The race starts on the sea front before turning left and uphill to Ulwell. There then follows an undulating road traversing the area behind Swanage before finally turning left on to the main road into Swanage and finishing back on the front. An alternative to a Thursday night training session and there is even a beer tent and various makeshift eateries!"

Position Time Name
54 28:49 Greg Bemment

Sturminster Newton Half Half Marathon (7th August) - 271 finishers

I always forget quite how undulating this course is!! The day was off to a good start feeling quite cool and even drizzling a little - unfortunately it then warmed up (as forecast) and was quite humid during the race - though we were lucky in that the full sun waited to come out until the race had finished at least... It was a good Harrier turnout from the men - despite it not being DRRL or CC this year. Well done guys!

Thanks Graham for sending in the result from 'the toughest race' he has run so far!

Brutal 10K Albury Downs (13th August)

Thanks Graham for sending in this result on what sounds like a tough course: "Changed last minute from Pirbright due to refusal to use the MOD land, these are not races for PB's. This was my first Brutal run which was quite tough, 55:01, think I was 2 vet man!"

Time Name
0:55:01 Graham Malt


Dorset Doddle 32 miles (21st August)

Thanks Graham for sending in this result and on completing your first ultra!: "4 runners from the Harriers did it this year from Weymouth to Swanage along the coastal path, Joanna Tomsett, Greg Hawkins, Nick Hanlon-Brooks and Graham Malt, first time for Joanna and Graham."

Time Name
6:43 Greg Hawkins
6:44 Graham Malt
7:46 Nick Hanlon-Brooks


Round the Rock 10k (21st August) - 232 finishers

Round The Rock 10k 2016

A good turnout from the men to have more than enough runners for a team in the DRRL for this far away race - and we were rewarded with a 3rd place for the league :) This certainly wasn't a PB course or conditions - with the second half predominantly uphill... and it was quite warm too… great stuff guys!!

Position Time Name
9 0:37:13 Darren Howard-Tomes
10 0:37:19 Matt Brown
15 0:38:39 Paul Hill
21 0:39:17 Steve Williams
