Darent Valley 10k

Dear All

Many thanks to the 27 Harriers who came along yesterday, it was great to see some new faces and also a few who have never done a Kent GP event before. For those of you who have not done the Darent Valley 10K, it is pretty challenging with a few cheeky little hills. However the last few km are downhill so you can make back some of your time loss. Full results are below and I think we did have a couple of PBs as well as first time 10K runners as well, Bob to confirm. Also honourable mention to future harrier Dillon Hobbs for finishing in 5th in just over 36 mins. - Continue Reading -

Pulborough Vineyard Half Marathon

A little further afield than Darent five Harriers June Edwardes-Evans, Rosie Harris, Helen Jenkins, Catherine Kinder and I took part in the Pulborough Vineyard Half Marathon.

Catherine had persuaded us all to enter sometime ago under the premise that there was free cake and wine at the finish. Unfortunately none of us had really read the rest of the route description and thought through what an 8 lapped off road hilly half marathon might be like. - Continue Reading -

Fox Ultra & Devil’s Challenge

On Saturday 27th May I competed in The Fox ultra – a 60 km circular route around Guildford. The course starts (and finishes) at Godalming and follows the Fox Way which is, for the most part, very scenic. About 30% of the route is on road, which may explain why my legs were so sore at the end. I got round the course in 6:43:52 (11th woman and 72 overall out of 224). It was a well organised event and the course was well signed. There were some very swift times at the sharp end of the field.

Then on Saturday 4th May I ran the Devil’s Challenge. When I entered this event I didn’t take account of the fact that it the two events were on consecutive weekends! The Devil’s Challenge is put on by XNRG and is a three-day, 97 mile ultra marathon along the South Downs Way, passing the legendary Devil’s Dyke valley – hence the name of the event. - Continue Reading -

Hildenborough Races

18 Harriers made the short trip to the home village of our Half Marathon family – Hildenborough, for their annual race day

This event has a lovely community spirit with race distances for everyone. 1 mile school kids races are followed by a “mass” start for the 2.5, 5 and 10 mile races. As a bonus we usually have several marshal points covered by TWH or Raynet guys that know the deckchair so support is solid all the way around. - Continue Reading -

10 Handicap – Wed 08 May 2019 – Race 1 of 4

Welcome back to the 2019 Handicap Series of Races.

Below are the handicaps for Wed 08 May. Your personal start time is the event start time of 19:20 hours plus your handicap (Race time).
As usual, please turn up on time and pay attention to the start marshals. Wear something bright  as it can be dark under the trees and you need to be visible to the car drivers. Your safety is your responsibility.
Full race details are on the web site and I will be at the clubhouse from around 19:00 to answer any questions and assist any new harriers.
Let me know if you have any questions or your name is not on the list and you want to run. If so, send an Email to my Hotmail account or work Email.
As always, we need some willing volunteers to marshall – please email ASAP if you are available. I already have 5 helpers, but need 7 more. The race can’t take place without you.
