Captain’s Report – November 2019

Captain’s Report – November 2019

Its been a busy month post IOW Marathon with PBs galore, that marathon endurance training is now translating into speed endurance. For those that maintain a good level of training through the winter, should see even more PBs in the new year.

There was good number of Harriers at recent HRRL races Hayling 10m and Gosport Half, with the men’s team coming 4th at Gosport thanks to some of our new members.

The HXCL season is well underway, with fixtures at Winchester and Aldershot. Although our numbers at these events were lower than normal, as some of us opted for a fell race in South Wales instead.

If you are interested in cross country racing, not to worry, there is still lots of opportunity over the next 3 months. There’s the Hampshire cross country championships and league races in January, then our own cross-country races in January & February. Details on the Harriers website.
