MONDAY NIGHT TRAINING! Group B – you have super run leader Rosie taking your session tonight, meet at Taunton’s as usual VOLUNTEERS WANTED – I have some sample vests from a potential new kit manufacturer. We’d like to lend these to you for a week or so and get your feedback on how comfortable they are to run in. We have a men’s large and a women’s small and medium. You can get changed into them in the school and give me the vests and your feedback next week anytime. Who would like to try them out? Post below please (Rob)
Fantastic running from Lordshill Road Runners today at Gosport Half Marathon! In near-perfect conditions there were PBs aplenty, and some truly excellent times. Special mention must go to Di Mattingley, who won an age category prize! How was your Sunday Runday?
WEDNESDAY TRAINING UPDATE! Coach Martin is running another awesome session tonight at the Sports Centre. In a slight adjustment to the schedule it will now be a hill session, not on the track. See you all there! [disclaimer: hill pictured may not be in tonight’s session]
Nice video with a few LRR’s on display…. but the question is who’s in! Time to step up and start training people!
Hampshire Cross Country League, Queen Elizabeth’s Country Park Match 2, Saturday 11 November: RESULTS (The men’s teams scores are not yet published but to avoid further delay, here are the results from Saturday’s race). We made Lordshill history on Saturday by the number of men’s runners at the Hampshire XC! Everyone ran brilliantly and it was a fantastic team spirit. There seemed to be mud everywhere you went but there was a constant buzz with lots of other races going on. The ladies kicked off before the men’s race showing them the way up the mountain (aka Butser Hill). This was the most epic hill in XC racing I think everyone agreed. The men then set off and did us proud by tackling this beast, not 1, but 3 times!! The ladies race consisted on 3 laps of the undulating cross country/grass laps; one large lap including an enormous ascent up Butser Hill and two smaller loops. The men’s races consisted one 3 laps of the larger loop (which the ladies ran once). Men: POS: VET: NAME: CAT: TIME:..
Important message for everyone running in Victory 5 Mile, the HRRL race on December 3rd: “Due to essential work on the Portsmouth sea defences a section of the normal course is closed. An alternative route using local roads and joining Stamshaw Promenade beyond the sea defence work has been rejected by the Local Authority. We have, therefore, had to change the venue of the race and it will now be based at LAKESIDE NORTH HARBOUR, WESTERN ROAD, COSHAM PO6 3EN. Full details will be e mailed to entrants. City of Portsmouth A.C. apologise for this enforced change but look forward to seeing you at the alternative venue.”
Calling all Lordshillers! We have a space in the women’s team for this afternoon’s Hampshire Cross Country event. This a really exciting race for runners of all abilities. Entry is free and the course will be a muddy but fun 6km route (so just longer than a Parkrun). Who’s interested? You can post here or message me! (Rob)

TEAM RESULTS (CC6 #3 Dibden) Men: 1st A cracking win for the chaps! Ladies: 2nd Excellent team result, not far from the win which went to Totton
Results are in!! CC6 #3 Dibden 5 November 2017 Superb running from both men and ladies at this morning’s gloriously sunny and fresh CC6. The 4.7 miles course took us around the Dibden Enclosure with some decent hills, obviously mud and some splashing puddles. The race was smooth flowing and a fantastic course, perhaps one of the faster CC6’s. Thank you Mick and his team at Hardley for a well organised and friendly race. There were many runners out from all the clubs so it was a strong field. Watch this space to find out where both men and ladies teams placed as both strong results (and across the board)! Lordshill is hosting the next CC6 (together with Wessex) on 10th December (no #4) so our next race is on 7th January 2018 (no #5). This is at Badger Farm (hosted by Winchester, Southampton AC & Running Sisters). Please remember these are completely free races for club runners and a great way to spend your Sunday morning. If you have never been before but would like to, give one of us a..
