Hello everyone I currently hold stock of the old vests. They are a bargain at just a fiver! Stock up whilst remaining items are sold off. Keep it for training or cross country leagues/races as another option/back up. They are substantially discounted (over 70% off!). I currently have all sizes (as of 19/02). (Alice Burch)
CC6 #7 Denny Wood Sunday 18 February This morning saw the penultimate CC6 of the season and the race did not disappoint! Fantastic running by both men and ladies and great team scores too. Thank you to Totton RC who provided us with a very muddy course, bogs and of course hills; and encouraging marshals and delicious cakes at the plenty! Here are the results below. Don’t forget our last CC6 is on Sunday 11th March. We plan to have a post race gathering. Watch out for details. Well done and enjoy a relaxing afternoon!
KIT UPDATE Haven’t you heard? The new Lordshill vests are in stock! We have taken our first delivery of vests from our new supplier, Scimitar, and they are now available to buy from the usual place – We Are Locksmiths on London Road – and at the usual price of £17 each. Modelled beautifully by your Vice Captains Lucy and Chris, we asked them for comments on the new kit. Chris commented “these new vests are amazing, I feel faster already. In fact, in this vest I know I’m ready to run sub-16 at Parkrun next week, and then onwards towards that magical two hour mark at London Marathon”. Lucy decided to take the question seriously, noting “I love my new vest – it’s a better fit, more comfortable, and better looking than the old kit”. So pick up your new kit soon to make sure you look your best at the next race!
This morning’s awesome team of Lordshillers ready to take on Denny Wood CC6! As I post they are about half way round, racing hard, and I imagine very muddy! Watch out for the full results later in the day…
For those of you attending the CC6 at Dennywood tomorrow morning, please be aware of the closure of the Redbridge Flyover on Sunday morning. The bridge between Southampton and Totton at the bottom of the M271 will be closed again this weekend as part of ongoing bridge strengthening works. On Sunday morning it will not be possible to travel out of the city that way. Please allow yourself time and plan an alternative route. The diversion is via the M27 to Cadnam and then via Lyndhurst!
Welcome to the weekend everyone! Hope you’ve all got some great running planned? And of course that running will include this Sunday’s CC6, right?! Don’t forget it’s a 9:30 start at Dennywood this Sunday. There’s only two races left of the season, so please come along and let’s get a great Lordshill turnout to end another successful season in style! As an added bonus we are selling off all of the old style vests after the race for only £5 each, so grab yourself a bargain while you’re there. Enjoy the weekend everyone (even if you foolishly decide not to run the CC6)! https://www.facebook.com/events/2098168830419422/?ti=cl
Monday Night Training – Feedback Required Hi everyone, so we had “The Big Reshuffle” on Monday at training. It seemed to go really well, with the groups having more appropriate runners and feedback has been positive – but what did you think of it? Comment below!
It’s a CC6 and a SALE SUNDAY!! I really hope to see as many of you as possible on Sunday at the Dennywood CC6! This is a great course and just need to turn up. We would like to put out as many lordshillers as we can! We recommend car sharing too. If you have any spare seats, please let us/members know. If you are new and want to come along and try a race out, please do let us know too or just turn up. It is very friendly and social. Another great reason is to come and pick up a bargain!! I will be selling (old version) Lordshill vests (probably post race but will get there early) for just £5!!!! Cash only please. Please share the word to non FB members. See you on Sunday! Only two CC6 races left in the season. Who’s in?? (Alice B)
CC6 Dennywood- 18th February The penultimate race in the CC6 series is happening this Sunday! As always, these are free events open to all club members (just wear your club vest) and start at 9.30am sharp! Here is a message from Totton RC with more information about the event: “Totton RC invite you to our CC6 at Dennywood on Sunday 18th February. It will be the same course we have used for the last few years- with its mix of forest tracks, mud, hills, puddles, a ford and more mud. The course is wet- as you would expect from the recent rain. Some Totton elves have been out clearing away the worst of the fallen branches, but as always on cross country participants need to keep their own lookout for trip hazards as well. The route is a little under 5 miles and is not suitable for spikes. Enjoy!”

The official results are in from Ryde 10 mile! Some great running from all of the Lordshillers that made their way across the Solent to a changed course but with all of our favorite hills! Not only were there amazing individual finishes (see the full results for all the Lordshillers in the pictures), but the men took home third place in the team standings, while the ladies came in sixth overall. The next installment of the HRRL league is Eastleigh 10km on 18th March. Entries are sold out, but if you’ve not got yourself a place already keep an eye out for any transfers! It’s always great to have as many of you guys at the HRRL races as possible!

Well done to all you amazing runners who ventured over to Ryde this morning to stomp out 10 miles! Hope you all ran well, and we’ll be posting the full results when they are available! If you didn’t make it to Ryde, what other running have you been up to this weekend? Any other races, or just training runs? We always love hearing about all of your running exploits!
Dear LRR London Marathon Runners Please let me know if you and your friends/family/children would use a club coach if we put one on? I am keen to know asap in order for the committee to finalise the viability and costs. It would be return travel leaving early. (Alice B)
