It was a stunning day for this new event held at Lakeside North Harbour, Cosham. We took two women’s teams and one men’s team to compete in the senior races, with Sam Cleare and Justin Fitzgerald competing in their first mainland race as Harriers. Despite some chesty coughs everyone ran superbly with the women’s teams […]

After six months or so of pounding round the canoeing lake or up East Hill Road we’re all looking forward to spreading out onto different training surfaces and […]

Easter Race Series 2015

Easter

There’s just under a week to go before the first of our popular Easter Race series – the Newport To Ryde. This multi-terrian race of around seven miles was for many years run as a road race but shifted to the fields, woods and trails between Newport and Ryde as traffic made the road route […]
