Results for 2017

The results page was getting too big to handle so I have moved the period from January to June to a separate page which you can see here.

Nowadays quite a lot of races only show club name for EA registered runners.  This is very frustrating as it makes it much more difficult to find Hardley results.  If I miss you please email me.  Or better still, join EA.

Results are published here in date order, latest at the top. If you have any results to add, please email the webmaster (see contact us page).

Geoff Mills Trophies

Geoff was great racer. He turned out for pretty well everything. His family have given two trophies, one for women and one for men. They will go to the people who run in the most races in the RR10, HRRL, HCCL and CC6 series plus the cross country county, regional and national championships. The more races you finish the more points you get.

Here are the results so far (Excel spreadsheet) for the 2017/18 season. Click here to see previous results.

New Forest Stinger - Minstead - Sunday 15 October 2017

This race is always popular with Hardley members and this year there was the added bonus of a half marathon as well as the usual 5 and 10 mile options.  Hardley results are below.  Particular mention goes to Jappas for doing a double - he was first last year as well.  Here's a small album of Hardley pictures with thanks to Simon Mason.  You can see his whole album here.  You can read more about the race and see the full results here.

The Studland Stampede - Sunday 15 October 2017

The Studland Stampede is a tough off-road running event that races over heath land and sandy beaches, in the beautiful location of Studland Bay in Dorset.

The 12k route offers stunning views of Old Harry Rocks, Brownsea Island and the Isle of Wight. Runners of all abilities enjoy the race but it does require an amount of determination and grit to get you through the final tough sandy miles.

Julie Swainston was  263rd in 1:13:56

The Great Pumpkin Run - Kansas - Sunday 15 October 2017

Emma Rogers reports, "I did The Great Pumpkin Run in Kansas City yesterday. I was a little hungover and it was very humid due to an incoming storm, so it was taken rather slowly!! Got a cool technically hoodie and medal though!"

Despite her reservations, Emma was a very respectable 495th out of 1853.

You can read more about the event here.

And here are the results.

 

HCCL Race 1 - Bournemouth - Saturday 14 October 2017

Mick Anglim reports, "It was over 20C at King's Park, Bournemouth for the first round of the Hampshire Cross Country League and our men had their best team result for many years by winning Division 3 from Lordshill RR.

Underfoot conditions were perfect and many ran in racing flats which certainly isn't recommended for the next race at Queen Elizabeth Country Park, south of Petersfield!

Tim Annetts led our men home in an impressive 46th position with Mark Causebrook in 87th and Ben Andrew in 107th out of 246 finishers.

Unfortunately our ladies couldn't raise 3 runners but Vicki Clarke in 61st and Tamsin Roberts in 107th out of 156 runners flew the Hardley flag.

Please consider trying out these superb events where you'll be rubbing shoulders with Olympic athletes."

Vicki Clarke adds,"Bournemouth HCCL with Tamsin Roberts yesterday. Was the first one of these I've ever done, and even though it's a ridiculously competitive field out front, I really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend others to get involved in these to give us a full team. No where near as scary as I expected - glad I gave it a go - coming 61st didn't seem too bad either!"

English Duathlon Championships - Cheshire - Sunday 8 October 2017

Mick Anglim reports, "Just back from the English Duathlon Championships at Oulton Park motor racing circuit in Cheshire.

I was very pleased to add the M70 National title to my British, European Sprint and European Middle Distance titles and two World Duathlon Championship medals for 2017.

Oulton Park is a hilly, twisty 4.3km circuit which hosted the 2017 English Duathlon Championships over 2 run laps, 9 bike laps and a final one lap run.

I was happy to finish in 2:14:31 in 137th position overall out of 229 finishers but disappointed to be beaten by 2 minutes by the 1st M65 competitor!"

You can see the full results here.

Well done!  Mick has now prequalified for Great Britain for 2018 in two World Championships in Denmark and two European Championships in Ibiza.

Great Scottish 10K - Glasgow - Sunday 1 October 2017

Annie Bruce-Low was running for Alzheimer's again.  If you'd like to donate please contact her.  She reports,

"I have just done the Great Scottish 10K in the pouring rain! I haven’t a clue about my time as haven’t as yet bothered to look as too busy counting my money! I took my bucket round as usual and found everyone extremely generous! £229.31. Couldn’t believe it! One runner asked if he could take a selfie with me and I said yes and he popped a £20 note in my bucket!

An extremely profitable morning. Oddly enough it didn’t seem so long this year. No I didn’t get lost and take a short cut so please give the hat to someone more worthy!

For the record, Annie was 8339th (4459th F and 3rd F75) in 1:56:51

CC6 Race 2 - Whiteley - Sunday 1 October 2017

CC6 Captain, Simon Ibbotson, reports,

"Well done to everyone that took part in the second CC6 at Whiteley. From the looks of the finishers I think it was one of the muddiest races ever.

2 ladies and 5 men ran for Hardley, with Lynn McDonagh and Jappas Du Preez finishing first in 10th and 4th place respectively. 

The next race will be our own, held in Dibden Inclosure on Sunday 5 November. I will be asking for volunteers soon."

Hants Road Race League Report and Fixtures

A message from HRRL Ladies' Captain, Alice Ryder.

Well done to everyone who ran the Solent Half on Sunday. I wasn't able to run as was in Berlin but heard that it was a big success and saw some super speedy results!

Well done to Jeremy and Matt who did all 12 HRRL races last year and have t shirts on the way. To Vicki and Jan who both have HRRL mugs for 2016/2017. To Matt and Simon who both have HRRL mugs (I have these now and will distribute them very soon). Also mugs are soon going to be arriving for the following people who completed 7 or more races, Paul, Adrian, Jeremy, Terry and Mick. Special congratulations also go to Mick who was the 1st V65 and has won a trophy. 

[Alice is too modest to say but she also qualified for a mug and a t shirt and gets a trophy as the highest placed lady who did all 12 races.  Ed]

There are some HRRL races coming up soon and they will probably start to sell out quite soon due to the popularity of the HRRL races. If you enter now and then find out you cannot run you will probably be able to sell your place on and I can help with exchanges.

The next one is Gosport Half on Sunday 19th November. Over 1000 people have already entered this one and it is a good race to get a pb on

www.fullonsport.com/event/gosport-half-marathon-2017/profile

The following weekend is Hayling Island 10 miles on Sunday 27th November. I really enjoyed this one last year and it is a lot flatter then some of the 10 mile races that take place next year.

http://www.athleticevents.co.uk/page4.html

Then on Sunday 3rd December it is the Victory 5

https://www.fullonsport.com/event/victory-5-mile/profile

Then you have a couple of weeks break before the Stubbington 10km race on Sunday 14th January. Out of all the races this is the one that tends to sell out the quickest so if you are keen enter sooner rather than later

http://www.fullonsport.com/event/stubbington-10k-2018/profile

I will send out emails closer to the time for the 2018 races but dates for your diary are Sunday 4th February for Ryde 10 (entry will be on runbritain), Eastleigh 10km (Sunday 18th March entry on fullonsport), Salisbury 10 miles (Sunday 8th April) Alton 10 miles on Sunday 13th May.

Any questions please let me know on aliceryder@rocketmail.com.

Best wishes,

Alice

Tough Mudder 23/4 September Crawley

Click on the thumbnail to see some pictures.

Rob Wells reports,

My race or not a race should I say was Tough Mudder, a 10-12 mile mud and obstacle course designed to drag you out of your comfort zone by testing your physical strength, stamina, and mental grit. With no podiums, winners, or clocks to race against, it’s not about how fast you can cross the finish line. Rather, it’s a challenge that emphasizes teamwork, camaraderie, and accomplishing something almost as tough as you are. The course was just over 10 miles with 20 signature obstacles from Augustus gloop to funky monkey revolution and the 10,000 volt finish line if you're brave enough. Maybe another Hardley outing next year?  Special congrats to my daughter who did it for the first time (surprise) and earnt her orange headband.

Berlin Marathon - Sunday 24 September 2017

Alice Ryder reports, "Berlin marathon done. It rained for the whole day! Was muggy as well so didn't get cold.

Both calfs were tight so quite a lot of walking involved.  Not my fastest time (3hrs 43 or so) but a really good race."

For the record, Alice was 1237th woman. 237th W35 in 3:42:19 and it must have been pretty fast walking.

Winchester Half Marathon - Sunday 24 Sepember 2017

The Solent Half - Sunday 24 September 2017

What a great race.  Thanks very much to everyone: organisers, marshals, supporters, bakers and runners.  Hardley results are below.  For a link to the full results see the Solent Half tab above.  And here are a few pictures taken by the tail runner.

HRRL Men's Captain, Tim Anetts, reports,

"Well done to everyone who ran in the Solent half-marathon on Sunday we had a great turn out, and as a result all 4 teams scored our best results so far this season. It would be great to keep this up moving forward into the rest of the 2017-18 HRRL season. Thanks again to everyone involved in the organisation and marshalling on Sunday. Fantastic support on the course.

The presentations for the 2016-17 HRRL season took place at the end of the race on Sunday. A massive well done to Alice Ryder who won a very smart trophy for top lady to run all 12 HRRL races last season. Another massive well done goes to Mick Anglim for finishing 1st M65 last season.

If this has inspired you the next HRRL race is Gosport half marathon on the 19th November entries are still open.

Many thanks

Tim"

The First CC6 - Fleming Park - Sunday 17th September 2017

CC6 Captain, Simon Ibbotson, reports, "It was a chilly start to the 2017-2018 season but the rain held off meaning it was only "fairly" muddy underfoot. 11 men and 5 ladies turned out to run for Hardley, with Ben Andrew leading home the men and Lynn McDonagh the ladies.  

Don't forget that the 2nd CC6 (Whiteley) is in only two weeks time, on the 1st October!"

Hardley results are below.  The full results will be on the CC6 website (see Links tab above) by Monday night.

Ironman Wales - Pembrokeshire - Sunday 10 September 2017

Hannah Du Preez reports, "Massive congratulations to Jappas who completed Ironman Wales on Sunday in a fantastic time of 10hrs 30. He ran a 3hr14 hilly marathon which was the 19th quickest on the day including all the pros. He was 9th in his age group and got a place in the 2018 Ironman world champs in Hawaii. The conditions were terrible with heavy rain and gale force winds. I also did the race and was very happy to finish in 15hrs, especially when 14% of the field DNF'ed. It was such a tough day."

That's a wonderful result.  Jappas and Hannah's results are below and you can see the full results here.  More than 2,000 athletes from 45 countries took part with a 2.4-mile (3.9km) swim, a 112-mile (180 km) bike ride and a 26 mile (42 km) run.

WSR Bad Cow weekender - Corfe - 9/10 September 2017

Kim Wainwright did marathon distance on Satrday in the 12 hour race and the marathon on Sunday. She says, "Won't mention times, they are getting slower and slower lol". 

That's not quite true as she was 19 minutes faster on the Sunday.  Well done!

You can read more about the event here.

New Forest Marathon, Half and 10K - Brockenhurst - Sunday 10 September 2017

Mike Clarke reports

"The route was very familiar but with one or two tweaks after last year.

It is properly classified as multi-terrain. Only about 3 .5 miles at the most on roads.

Was a bit of surface water and mud and the slower 10K runners joined us at about mile 10, so we had to thread through.

Quite happy with the time and 3rd time running retaining first place for V70's."

Mark Lee was also well pleased with a PB in the marathon though, like Mo Farah in the Great North Run, there must be just a tinge of regret over not being 8 seconds faster.

Hardley results are below.  You can see the full results here.

Hampshire Road Relays - Portsmouth - Sunday 10 September 2017

Mark Causebrook says, "Hampshire relays today. Great fun chasing people down!"  Graham Robbins adds, "Enjoyed it although not a fan of the wind!"

Mick Anglim reports, We fortunately missed the rain at the Hampshire Road Relays today but it was very windy on the longest leg. 

Each of the 3 runners ran two laps of the lake along part of Portsmouth Lakeside parkrun course for 4.75k.  Our A men were 17th out of 34 teams with our Over 60 team in 31st place. The latter isn't as bad as it appears as our youngest was 69 along with two M70s! Next year there may be an Over 70 category.  Our ladies beat 4 teams so pretty respectable given the standard."

Civil Service Track and Field Championships - Manchester - Weds 6 September 2017

Jane Hodge reports, On Wednesday Mick Anglim and Jane Hodge competed for their respective departments in the Civil Service Track and Field Championships at Manchester. It was cold and windy and the occasional shower left the track greasy and slippery which was challenging as neither of them wore spikes. However, they were both pleased with their performances as they competed in quite a few events: Mick did 3 track races and 2 field events whilst Jane did 4 track races.

Mick was awarded gold medals in the 800m, 1500m and 5000m for winning the V70 age category, beating the CSAA M70 standard times in all 3 events.

Jane received 4 medals: 2 golds for being first overall and first V55 in the 3000m run, silver for being second overall in the 3000m race walk (with a personal best) and gold for being first V55 in the race walk.

Their times are shown in the table below (in the order in which Mick and Jane raced the events).

Mick   
1500m   6.08   
800m    3.10   
5000m   21.56  
Jane   
3000m race walk 19.04  
800m    3.27   
3000m run       13.33  
400m    1.31   

The picture shows Jane on the podium after being awarded with her gold medal for first place in the open 3000m run.”

Sunday 3 September 2017 - a busy day for Hardley runners

Here are some of the tings we got up to.

HRRL Race 1 - The Overton 5 - Sunday 3 September 2017

This race always sells out.  The new course is much nicer than the previous one (albeit a bit on the undulating side) and it is a great start to the HRRL season (see Race Diary tab above for details of the others). Hardley results are below and here's an album of Hardley pictures.  You can see the full results here

Meanwhile out West - The Original Somerset Maverick - Sunday 3 September 2017

Returning for 2017 and welcoming back the tremendous Quantock Hills, this is a seriously good route.  Not only are the views captivating - the trails are brutal! The routes here are set to test your resolve and determination.  With views of the Bristol Channel, Wales, Blackdown Hills, Exmoor and the Somerset Levels you should be as inspired as one of our greatest poets, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, once was.

Jack Fairbrother took on the challenge of the 17K route and was 29th man in 2:43:28.  You can read more about the event here.

And in the North of the County - The Andover Trail Half - Sunday 3 September 2017

Julie Swainston reports,  "Andover trail half with Sharon Mayvery, lovely but very hilly route

Really enjoyed it great scenery, hills were tough. Nearly got lost a couple of times as arrows were hard to spot. But overall really good "

Sharon adds, "Thanks so much - really beautiful route, lovely run rather surreal that after the start there were long stretches with no one else around.   Would love to run it again "

And out East in Ashford - The Southern Masters Track Finals - Sunday 3 September 2017

Mark Causebrook did the double.  He came 2nd in the 1,500M and then 3rd in the 3,000M.  Wow!

Not forgetting The Beast - Corfe - Sunday 3 September 2017

9 Hardley runners joined three friends from Romsey (Sue Sleath and Mark and Sue Stileman) for 12 miles of unforgettable scenery these lovely stairs, waves crashing against the cliffs and driving rain. Oh and the odd slippery place or two. Luckily the wind was off the sea or there might have been some disasters.    All in all a character building experience and life-enhancing as well.

Mike Sleath and Jeremy claim a new record for the slowest ever Hardley finish but at least they managed to do the race without falling over.

The Dorset Doddle - Sunday 20 August 2017

Paul Blundell reports, " Martin Loveless, Sue Sleath, Alice Ryder and Lynn Mcdonagh joined me for the Dorset Doddle yesterday from Weymouth to Swanage. At 32ish miles it was Alice and Lynn's first official ultra and it was a tough one with 6400 ft of ascent. The rain stayed away until we finished in around 7 hours 45 mins. Definitely feeling it now but it was a great day out."

Duathlon World Championship Series- British Columbia - 19 August 2017 or thereabouts

Mick Anglim reports, "Just back from Penticton in British Columbia after racing two World Championship Duathlons (out of the 6 World Championship events) in the inaugural Multi Sport World Championships.

I won M70 Silver on Saturday in the Sprint Duathlon which was a 5k lakeside run followed by two 10km tough bike loops and a 2.5km final run. The bike course had almost 800' of climb and two 45mph descents with a tight roundabout at the bottom! The descents were more challenging as the event was 'draft legal' which meant that there were groups of up to 20 riders packed together so there were a few crashes!

However it was luck of the draw if you got onto the bike leg with a group of riders and the unknown M70 Chilean winner got into a group for the whole bike leg whereas I spent a lot of time chasing alone.

I was pleased though to win Silver on a hired bike as we made a long holiday of the trip.

That road bike was much more of a handicap for the Standard Duathlon on Monday morning as the 40km bike leg was two windy laps on a closed highway alongside Okanagan Lake. Both runs used a 2.5km circuit through the town centre with 4 laps for the first run and two laps for the second.

I was one of only four M70s to compete in both Duathlons and my tired legs meant I missed out on Silver by just 24 seconds from a fresh American!

The M70 title was won by the South African whom I'd beaten into 3rd place in the Sprint event. Both riders who beat me were using their own Time Trial bikes.

I'm happy though with two World Championship medals and as first GB M70 in both events I get automatic qualification for the 2018 World Championships. Those will be held in Denmark using the same Multisport Championship format as in Canada.

The Midnight Marathon - Petersfield - Saturday 5 August 2017

Click on the medal to see more pictures. 

Paul Blundell reports,

The Midnight Marathon was a perfect night for a run, clear skies and a good moon, much better then the sweat fest of last year.

Myself, Alice Ryder, Martin Loveless and Mark Lee met up with Tam Ryan , Becky Tovey among others from Romsey and we loosely ran around together.

It s a tough course and was quite slippery in places.

The 5 checkpoints were well stocked with a variety of foods including Water Melon, Strawberries (so Martin happy) and even Peach Schnapps at the last one.

This event is growing and there were a lot more runners then last year making the first climb a compulsory walk, and there were a lot of runners with dogs, talking to one young lady, she and her partner were swapping out the dogs at the half way point.

The only navigation hiccup for me was at the finish where they take you around the field and then the arrows seemed to disappear so Mark and I were standing there at the finish in the dark not knowing how to finish, not good after 26 miles, luckily Tam and Alice caught up and found the missing arrow.

We all finished in just over 5 hours, which we were happy with, Alice had run a marathon the previous weekend, (she's got another next weekend), Tam had the remains of a hangover and the rest of us were treating it as a training run."

Joint RR10 Captain, Dan Latham, writes, "A big thanks from Rob and myself to the 7 ladies and 22 men who turned up on what was not the best of evenings, but the majority of rain seemed to have staved of for the best part. It turned out to be a great wet and muddy course.

Congratulations to Jane Hodge on her 100th RR10."

The Snowdonia Trail Marathon - Sunday 23 July 2017

Jack Fairbrother reports, "I ran my first marathon today and wanted to say thank you to everyone from Hardley who's helped me with my training and offered encouragement.

Been a long old slog with all my injuries but I got there in the end! Felt very proud as I crossed the line and the announcer said "Jack Fairbrother representing Hardley Runners"

Thanks all, a few people have been asking me about the marathon itself - it's the Snowdonia Trail Marathon (it's actually longer than a marathon though) and entries for next year's event open on 26 July.   Details are here
If you like hilly / muddy stuff this one is for you - 5,500 feet of gain, you circumnavigate Mount Snowdon for 18 miles before running to the summit and back to Llanberis. You need to carry full waterproofs etc. I had a great time, would recommend if you like that sort of thing!
It sells out pretty fast so if anyone fancies it I'd book quickly."

The 8th RR10 - Janesmoor - Weds 19 July 2017

Joint RR10 Captain, Dan Latham, reports, "Round 8 of the RR10 league took place at Janesmoor Pond, Stoney Cross. The heavy down pours from the previous night made the course fairly sticky in places. The course, the same as the two previous years, featured plenty of hills on grass, mud and gravel trails.

The ladies team had another great performance with Alice Ryder in 10th, Charmaine Bradford in 11th and Natalie Green with her best position of the season in 17th, this will be another high placing for our ladies A team. 

Good results in the men's also with Huw Davies 26th, Justin Bowen 27th (Justin's best position this season), James Suswain in 29th, Mark Ferguson in 33rd and Rob Murray in 37th. 

Well done to all that took part. The next round is at Itchen Valley Country Park on 2nd August, with a slightly earlier start time at 7:15pm."

Muscle Acre - Guildford - Sunday 16 July 2017

Click on the picture to see the big picture.

Rob Wells reports, "On Sunday the 16th, I took on the muscle acre obstacle race, this is one I have done many times because the RD changes the course every time. Originally on the 10k there turned out to be an upgrade to 15k so that's what I did. Started of the first 5k with my daughter as that's the part of the course that the teenagers can do then at the 5/10 split I said goodbye an was off on the extra 5k which was mainly trail and carrys, really treacherous under foot so had to be extra careful, then joined back up to the main route for the last 5k. This is where the mud is and the qualifying rig with rings- bars- ropes and poles. You just had to wade through the chest deep mud and come out the other side about half a k any way you can. Then off to the finish for your medal and hard earned beer. I'll be going for the tri this year. Winter and summer done just autumn to go, where you earn a special gift.

This ultra is run along the Ridgeway and finishes at the iconic Avebury Ring.  There are various options from 50K on one day through 50K on each of two days to doing the whole 100K in one hit.

Steve Bennettdid the first 50K and in 6:16:22  and was 36th/230 , 27thM/86, 13thV40M/31

David reports, "I jogged the Race to the Stones as Endure24's 90 miles was still lurking in the legs. Really well organised: flawless route-marking, lots of different food at the stops (I probably put weight on) and portaloos at every checkpoint."

The 8th or is it the 7th RR10 - Whiteley - Weds 12 July 2017

Joint RR10 Captain, Dan Latham, reports, "Another good turn out at the Whiteley RR10 with 11 ladies and 19 men. A very similar course to last year but not as muddy this time, the tight and twisty course was enjoyed by many.

The ladies team will achieve another high placement with Alice Ryder and Charmaine Bradford achieving their best positions so far in 9th and 10th and Vicki Clarke equaling her seasons best in 20th.

James Clarke was first man in at 26th, Justin Bowen 37th despite some lace issues, Mark Ferguson in 40th place even with a roll in the mud and Matt Tanner in 50th.

Mike Sleath had a notably good run knocking off 26 places this week and Sally Harbut smashed out her best result of the season improving by 40 places, well done.

The next RR10 is next Wednesday 19th July at Stoney Cross, hope to see as many of you there as possible."

Abbotts Ann Trail Run (10k) - Sunday 2 July 2017

David Gould reports, "It was a very hot day to be running at 11am. The course is a good one, though: very scenic and with a few gentle rises towards the end to maintain the interest.

I started off really badly: slow and lethargic and then my calves tightened up. So I just kept plugging away until around half way, when things seemed to loosen off and I managed to pull back a couple of minutes.

It's a really nice, local event: well-signed, well-marshalled and well worth the effort."

For the record, David was 40th in 54:51.  You can see the full results here.
