Captain’s Report – June

Early June saw the final race in the Hampshire Road Race League (HRRL) 2015-2016 season, D-Day 10k, where a big team of Ryde Harriers were able to pull off an outstanding last ditch effort.

The ladies’ A team finished top of the 3rd division. They gain promotion to the second division next season.

The men’s A team finished 7th out of 10 teams and will remain in the second division for next season.


In late June saw 167 runners take part in the Braiding 10k, hosted by Ryde Harriers. With the larger turnout, up 24 from last year, being made up by more IOW runners taking part then in the last 5 years.

Ryde Harriers were well represented with 29 runners taking part.

First man went to Joe Wade in a very quick time of 33:50

First lady went to Trish Train in 43:03
