the Chilly Hilly on 10th December


The very Chilly Hilly 10-mile race
There was a good turnout at the West Wight Sports Centre on Sunday.
Nine WWRRs battled with the elements and completed the race - well done all.
The words “tough”, “challenging”, “brutal” all apply.
Definitely not “balmy” (although perhaps we mud-splattered runners were barmy)
Heading up the steep hill towards the Tennyson Monument, with horizontal rain stinging the face, it was hard to see other runners ahead. As the great poet himself wrote – So shape chased shape”.
Congratulations especially to Steve on winning our nominated Championship Race, and well done Paul J who got the first in his age category prize.
Many thanks to all the marshals and supporters. Here are the WWRRs’ results:

WWRRs abroad on Sunday 19th November


Last weekend four West Wight Road Runners collected running medals from diverse locations. Well done all for venturing to these interesting places, and achieving some great running times. We look forward to hearing more about your experiences!

Furthest from home: Cherry Owens was in Spain to take part in the Valencia 10 km race, an event which together with the city's marathon on the same day was well supported by the local people. There were approximately 7,500 runners in the 10km race! Cherry did well to come 3rd in her age category with a time of 1.00.14 (1 hr and 14sec). Photo below - Cherry with finisher's medal.

Closer to home, Graham Maddison and Christine Armstrong were enjoying rather cooler conditions in the sunshine at the Gosport Half Marathon. Graham earned 2nd place in his age category with a time of 1.54.32. This is a PB for him taking almost 10 minutes off his previous best! Christine finished in 2.16.07. The photo shows them both after the race outside race HQ.

And at a higher latitude - Phil Andrews competed in the Conwy Half Marathon (the 10th anniversary run) in Wales, with over 2500 runners competing. Phil finished in 1:49:09 chip time.
