Below you can find listings of league races held throughout the year. These include the RR10 Series, Hampshire Road Race League (HRRL), CC6 Series and Hampshire Cross Country League (HCCL).

 

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 run in lub colours and there are usually some for sale at the race, or available to borrow if needed. You can run in all of the events except the one hosted by our club (please volunteer to help at this event if you can). So please do give the series a try. There is usually a lift share from the Applemore car park.

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.

Note of important change for 2023: The RR10 results will now be processed using the same format as Parkrun, i.e. each runner gets a position token at the finish and this has to be scanned along with their Parkrun barcode (free to sign up for here). Each runner will need to register once prior to their first race of the season (registration link can be found on teh RR10 website, see links page)

Here is the fixture list for the 2023 season.

Please save the date for our RR10: June the first.  We'll need all the helpers we can get.

Hampshire Road Race League (HRRL)

The 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! 

HRRL races are always popular and they sell out quickly so book early. If you find you aren't able to take part then you will be able to dispose of your entry on the HRRL number swaps FB page (see Links tab above).

Here are details of the 2023/24 HRRL season.

Cross Country

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

CC6

The CC6s are a series of races held over the winter period on cross country courses. Each course is between 4 and 5 miles and is hosted by one or more clubs. You can run in all of the events except the one hosted by our club (please volunteer to help at this event if you can). They are free for club members and the only requirement is that you run in club colours.

Our CC6 Captains will email you leading up to each event with more information on courses, conditions, etc.  They will also be emailing to ask for your help with the marshaling and setting up of our own race at Dibden Inclosure.   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 so please try to car share wherever possible, thank you.

You can find out more about these races by visiting the CC6 website (see links page).

Here are the 2023/24 fixtures. All races start at 9.30am.

Please save the date for our CC6: 14 January. We'll need lots of volunteers to help out.
