Captain’s Report – March

Well done to all of you that have competed in events throughout March. Well done to the boys who will be promoted to division 2 in the Hampshire cross country league.

We had a lovely little  weekend away for the Larmer tree 20miles( which is actually 21.3 miles). A great route! off road, hilly and tough with a bit of mud thrown in a perfect jaunt for us hardy Harriers. The Larmer tree runs are becoming  quite a favourite for a few of us,  with a spot of caravan accommodation thrown in and a lovely chip shop up the road cant be bad.  Our club secretary Angela Thornton and the lovely Tracey Dillion flew abroad to race in the Cypriot heat well done girls!!

we had a strong field of runners representing Ryde Harriers at the Eastleigh 10k well done!! Charlie metcalf was the only women to represent us Ryde Harriers ladies and boy what a cracking job she did too. Well done Charlie!! It would be lovely to see some more ladies entering the Hampshire road race league runs.Come on Ladies we can do it.

A big shout out to Sasha Levrier who completed  New Forest 75k ( 46.6 miles) And Les Cupis completed the 50k well done guys. Roll on April …oh it is April im just late in getting the report posted good luck to all that compete in April and dont forget Newport to Ryde  (15th 0f April) and the three hills (17th April) .See you there!!!
