Our friends at Lordshill Road Runners have a series of timed mile events open to members of other clubs.  You need to register and get a barcode, a process which is simple and which will be familiar to parkrunners.  The events are on Southampton Common starting near the Cowherds at 6.30pm. 

You can read more about the events and register here.

Dates for this year are

Hants Road Race League - Salisbury 10 on 14 April and more

HRRL Captain, Vicki Clarke, writes, "The next round of HRRL races are rapidly creeping up on us, and it would be amazing to get some full teams out to get a sea of purple waving the Hardley flag. These races are for people of all abilities, but to enter as a Hardley entrant, you do need to be EA affiliated, so please consider adding this to your membership in April if you don't already have it. This also opens up all the training sessions giving you access to a wealth of knowledge from our skilled trainers. These races are filling up well in advance, and appear to have opened very early, so if you are tempted in the slightest get entered quickly. Number swaps can be done nearly up to race day if anything crops up and you can no longer run.

Next up is the Salisbury 10m on 14th April - http://salisbury10.salisbury-arc.org/

Alton 10m on 13th May - http://www.altonrunners.co.uk/club-events/alton-ten/

Netley 10k on 19th May - This year this will be our CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS!!! - https://www.runbritain.com/RaceDetail.aspx…

Then another newby to the League - Alresford 10k on 16th June - I've heard murmerings of hills, but I feel this is definitely fake news - http://alresford10k.co.uk/

And finally Lordshill 10k on 30th June -  https://www.runbritain.com/entries/EnterRace.aspx…

I'll obviously keep sending out more emails closer to the events, but get these in the diary and enter if you can!

The First RR10 - Weds 17 April - Royal Victoria Country Park

The new season kicks off with and excellent course which may even feature a bit of beach.  Remember this one has an early start and that there's always congestion on the way.  Last year it took me an all out five minute effort to catch the tail runner.  This is not recommended.

Hants Road Race League

The Hampshire Road Race League (HRRL) is an annual series of road races for all runners from participating clubs in the County.  We field two men's teams (four per team) and two ladies' teams (three per team).  Club members who take part in the events are automatically members of the teams if they finish high enough up the field.  For some of the events where we are not well represented you may find you are in the team just by turning up! 

The fixture list for the 2018/19 season is as follows.

Cross Country

There are two main series of events where we field teams - the CC6s and the Hampshire League.  

CC6

The CC6s are now a series of 8 races held over the winter period on cross country courses (lots of lovely mud :-) ). Each course is between 4 and 5 miles (most around 4.5 miles) and is hosted by one or more clubs so that everyone is able to run 7 out of the 8 races. They are free for club members and the only requirement is that you run in club colours, please contact me if you need a Hardley Vest or T-Shirt.

Cross Country Captain, Tim Anetts, will email you leading up to each event with more information on courses, conditions, etc.  He will also be emailing to ask for your help with the marshaling and setting up of our own race at Dibden Inclosure on 25th November.   The CC6s are always great fun and I will hopefully see many of you there. Please note that as parking can be very limited at these venues I would like to request that you try to car share wherever possible, thank you.

You can find out more about these races by visiting the CC6 website (see links page).  The 2018/19 fixture list is below.  All races start at 9.30am.

Hampshire Athletics Cross Country Season

The Hampshire Cross Country League provides 5 great races FREE of charge for EA registered runners. As EA subs are only £14.50 and also provide a minimum of £2 discount on each Open race that's incredibly good value.

If you're not already registered you can add EA membership at any time by using Paysubsonline.

These events are held all over the County.  There is a league plus the Hampshire Championships.    The league events are free provided you are an EA member.  Races are held on Saturdays and the normal start time is 13.35 for women (6km) and 14.30 for men (10km).  You can find out more about these races by visiting the Hampshire Athletics website (see links page).  Please check the Hampshire Athletics website (see Links tab above) for any changes and instructions before you set off.

Other events

In addition to the CC6s and the HCCL we field teams at the Southern Championships and the Nationals and other events listed below.  If you'd like to enter any of these events (runners of all standards welcome - you don't have to be fast to enjoy the experience) please contact our caretaker Cross Country Captain, Tim Anetts.  We usually run a free minibus for the Southerns and the Nationals. 

We also try to field teams for

parkruns - free weekly 5K runs

All you have to do is register in advance and turn up any Saturday morning at 9am.  There's no charge. Sounds like an excellent way of getting in a quick workout and monitoring your fitness. Click here for details

Cycling Time Trials

We are affiliated to Cycling Time Trials which allows any of our members to take part in both local Club Time Trials and Open events. From March to September there is a full programme of local events which cost c£3 to enter on the day.

See this season's events at: http://www.southdc.org.uk/cevents.htm

If you would like more information please contact Mick Anglim.

RR10 Series

RR10s are by far the most popular events with our members.  The RR10 league is a series of races organised by running clubs in south-west Hampshire for their members. The races are held on Wednesday evenings during the spring and summer.  Entry is free for all members. All of the races are 4-5 miles off-road. The standard of runners varies from 5-minute milers to 12+ minute milers so, however fast you are, there will always be someone to compete with or just enjoy a run together if that's what you prefer. The only requirement is to wear a Hardley vest on the night and there are usually some for sale at the race for £15 or £17 for a tee-shirt so please do give the series a try. There is usually a lift share from the Applemore car park. 

The league has become very popular with record numbers attending so for the 2016 season onwards there have been some minor changes to accommodate more people.  There will be 12 races with each club dropping out on two so each club will take part in 10 races including one as organiser as at present. 

Every runner will still have nine races to compete in, of which their best six will count for the league position, as in previous years.  But your overall score will be based on the percentage of people you are ahead of in fuure rather than your place.


Please do not attend our drop out races as a spectator!

Personal music players with earphones are not allowed during RR10 races. It is very important that marshals' instructions can be heard at all times, and some runners have complained about being blocked on narrow parts of a course by runners unaware that someone was coming up behind them.

The dates for the 2019 season are below.
