Results for 2019

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).

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.

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.

The Snowman 10 - IoW - Sun 29 December 2019


Click on the little picture to see Callum Tanner literally flying.  He reports

"Always a fun race to end the year, the Abominable Snowman. It's a muddy 10 mile (also a 10k option) off-road circular route, starting and finishing at Cheverton Farm.

The course takes you through Brighstone Forest with some natural obstacles and basic navigation following signs stuck to trees and bushes, as well as some testing ascents/ descents over the downs.

Unfortunately the front 25 runners (that's 50 eyes, including mine!) missed an arrow at the Worsley trail around 4k, and as a result completed a shorter course (9.6 miles). Isle of Wight Marathon winner Gary Marshall was down in 27th after starting at the front so I can only guess he got lost somewhere too!

Slightly embarrassing moment for the race directors, as the first five runners waited to receive trophies in the ceremony after all runners had finished (first place was 1 hour 6 minutes, tailenders were some two hours later...!) only to be told they were disqualified. Christmas spirit would have been well and truly tested!

I finished one place away from the medals in sixth, which feels like winning as I could get home for a shower and Xmas dinner number three.

The Lepe Christmas Jumper 5K - Sunday 15 December 2019

Anne Bruce-Low reports, "Just to let you know Tracey Hickson and I did the Christmas Jumper 5K yesterday in all that awful weather. The conditions were atrocious, but we did it. Tracey was lucky she managed to miss the hailstones, but I got the full blast of them. They hit  my ears like mad. Tracey completed in an extremely presentable time of 33 minutes and I was very pleased with my 57 minutes."  Well done both!

Hardley Christmas Handicap - Hawkhill Inclosure - Sunday 15 December 2019

Brendon's been abducted by aliens.  There was an excellent turnout for the Christmas Handicap.  Thanks very much to Mick for masterminding it.  It's 9.6K in 4 laps.  You predict your time and run without a watch.  The person nearest their predicted time is the winner.

Here's a photo album. and there's another on the Hardley FB page

The numbers have been crunched.  Club President, Mick Anglim, reports

Thank you very much for supporting this morning's chilly but dry Handicap run around Hawkhill Inclosure which saw an impressive 56 entries. 

Well done to our winner, Lynn Wilson, who was just 8 seconds away from her predicted time closely followed by Paul Blundell who was only 10 seconds different.

At the other end of the results Team Eardley had a huge 7:23 difference but that was far faster than their predicted time so earns them the Lanterne Rouge for the second year running.

The fastest time was set by Deadpool Dan Baker who ran 36:30 and 90 seconds faster than his prediction despite his costume! 

Alice Rudd was our fastest lady in 41:31 which was 1:43 faster than her predicted time.

Congratulations to those who ran in fancy dress with Brendon Harbut well handicaped by his inflatable colleague but still running almost 4 minutes faster than predicted. Sally Harbut had the most festive costume so she and Brendon were awarded the wine along with Deadpool Dan.

Special thanks go to Jeremy for providing the refreshments and to his band of helpers for distributing the goodies. 

Many thanks also to Charmaine and Jack for managing the Finish positions and to Brendon, Malc Renyard and Mike Clarke for helping with signs.

Interestingly there were 28 of the 47 finishers who ran faster than their predicted times and just 12 who were within one minute of their predictions.

Thanks also to Sally for organising the post run lunch at The Turfcutters Arms which everyone seemed to enjoy. I can definitely recommend the Game Stew and dumplings!

Best wishes to everyone for a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2020."

A final comment from our webmaster. Isn't it great to see that our slowest finisher was the winner today.

The Chilly Hilly - Isle of Wight - Sunday 8 December 2019

Click on the little picture to see the big picture.  Callum Tanner reports, "Chilly Hilly is a tough ten mile circular starting and finishing at West Wight Leisure Centre, the main three hills are Tennyson Down, Headon Warren and Golden Ridge.

Wind speeds recorded at Alum Bay were 30-40 knots as we reached the first big climb of Tennyson Down, and it felt worse with a swirling head wind and nothing for cover on the climb to the monument. Some of the early front runners were soon dropping back.

Luckily I had two great Island runners Stuart Blackhouse (IOW RR) and Charlie Metcalfe (Ryde Harriers) for company and we teamed up and took turns at the front of a three person peloton!

Generally most runners times were down on last year due to windy and muddy conditions, but I managed a credible eighth place overall in 1:13:50. Felt in good nick and very happy with that!

It was also nice to bump into two more Hardley Runners who had travelled with the Lymington Tri-club, and both had very impressive podium finishes to take back across the water.

Ian Smith finished second M55 in 1:30:44, and Natalie Green third overall female (first SF) in 1:21:07. Well done and hope the ferries were running to timetable for the way home!

Full results are here."

The 4th CC6 - Janesmoor Pond - Sunday 8 December 2019

Click on the little picture to see the big picture.

Joint CC6 Captain, Hannah Cockle, reports,"This week's CC6 at Janesmoor Pond saw a fantastic 21 Hardley Runners turn out for a cold, crisp and longer than usual cross country race. The course was a tough undulating 5.5 miles which finished off with a gruelling slog uphill. There was a bugle-playing Father Christmas to cheer us all up though.

Nathan Renyard, Matt Tanner and Simon Ibbotson lead the Hardley men's team in 14th, 19th and 22nd place. A huge well done to Matt Casey, Jon Tite and Antony Insuli for coming along to their first ever CC6 and storming up the hills.

The Hardley ladies team had an absolutely fantastic result with Alice Rudd, Vicki Clarke and Poppy Tanner coming 3rd, 4th and 5th. Well done ladies!

The next CC6 will be Sunday 5th January at Badger Farm – see you there to run off some mince pies!  Oh and don'tforget to enter the County Championships the day before (see Race Diary tab above)."

HRRL Race 5 - The Victory 5 - Sunday 1 December 2019

There were some excellent results with at least three PBs.

Comments include

Chris Kidd, "Victory 5 miler this morning. Pleased with a PB of 53:09"

Graham Robbins, "That was a chilly one but a new PB for 5 miles"

Dan Powell, "Beyond buzzing with this result today! This time last year I done the same race in 32.44 dreaming of running a sub 40 10km! Never in a million years could I have dreamed of a result like today back then! Next week I go to my final race of the year the xmas pud 10km eyeing a fast time! 10 years ago I was in prime form and hit sub 37 10kms twice in the same year! I have been nowhere near achieving anything close to those times ever since! Since making some big positive changes to my life in august I have really felt the benefits, it hasn't been easy but I've trained hard and kept consistent! Now I'm aiming to be hitting the times of 2009 again if not next week then certainly early next year! Prior to today my 5 mile p.b was 29.55 now I have a new lifetime p.b! Anything really is possible if you want it hard enough and work for it hard enough just never quit."

HCCL Race 3 - Aldershot - Saturday 30 November 2019

Captain Tim Anetts writes, "Well done to everyone who ran in the HCCL race at Aldershot today! Initially there was some confusion around the weather as none of us could work out why it was wasn’t raining! We aren’t use to such dry conditions! The ladies team put in some fantastic individual performances and did the club proud. unfortunately the men’s team were 1 man short of a full team but equally there were some solid individual efforts.

The Stickler - Dorset - Sunday 27 October 2019

The Stickler (now in its 25th year) is a 10.1 mile multi terrain running race. It involves over 1500ft of gruelling climbing, beginning with the infamous ’Stickle Path’. Runners ascend three locally renowned peaks along the beautiful Stour Valley: Okeford Beacon, Hod Hill and Hambledon. The course is mostly on gravel tracks with some stretches on tarmac and grass.  Because of the way the course undulkates you have the chance to record your fastest mile of the season and also your slowest.  You can read more about this lovely race here.

Martin Loveless reports,"A good Hardley turnout with 10 runners making the trip to this years Stickler (or Dorset 3 Peaks as it's also known as).  11th time I've done this race which makes it my most popular race and have to say it doesn't get any easier but good result for me this year as best time since 2012 which is very pleasing.

The Great South Run - Portsmouth - Sunday 20 October 2019

There were some great results in the Great South.

Dan Latham, "Took 3 mins off my 10m PB. Plan was to run sub 70, stay under 7 min miles. Body decided 6:30 was a better aim for most of it. Well pleased!"

Emma Rogers, "PB'd. Wasn't sure ahead of time I would get the time I wanted, but with the help of Jack I actually did it a minute faster."

Jack Fairbrother, "Kipchoge has a car with a laser beam, Emma Rogers has me with a Garmin! 15 mins faster than her last Great South Run time! She’s getting quick!"

Danii Bundy, "1 hour 38 mins and 34 seconds.  Smashed my personal best by 7 minutes, Great South run 2019 you have been amazing. I was proud to be a hardley runner today"

Graham Robbins, "a PB but more importantly mum smashed it!"

The Second CC6 - Manor Farm - Sunday 13 October 2019

Simon Ibbotson reports,

Manor Farm was a new course for the CC6s which worked very well, with mud, surface water, hills, and some rain to finish with.  All good fun! 10 men and 5 ladies ran for Hardley. There some brilliant results, with Poppy leading home the ladies in 5th place and Callum the men in 14th place.  Also worth mentioning that Poppy along with a few others had taken part in the HCCL race yesterday as well! Well done all. Look out for details of the next CC6 which will be our own race on 24th November - volunteers needed!

HCCL Race 1 - Bournemouth - Saturday 12 October 2019

Here's a photo album 

Tamsin Roberts reports,"Saturday was the first Hampshire Cross Country League meet of the season at King's Park Bournemouth. Despite the damp conditions we had full teams out to complete the course which was rather slippery in places, as Dave Wilson found out, braving it to the finish after a slip and a cut arm!

Nat Green led the ladies home in 48th place with Poppy Tanner not too far behind her making a good start to her first appearance at HCCL. Team Tanner had a great day with Poppy's brother Callum popping over from the island to lead the Hardley men home.

If you're thinking about trying out HCCL please do come and represent Hardley, they are great fun!"

Mick Anglim adds,"On Wednesday Jane and I raced over Parliament Hill with over 700' of climb for the men but it was dry and sunny!   The weekend cross countries were very different!

Saturday afternoon was wet above and wet underfoot at Kings Park, Bournemouth for the first of the Hampshire X/C League races. Theoretically it should have been a stroll in the park as the course uses a lot of the flat Bournemouth parkrun route. With rain all day and age groups from U13 to over 70 there were over 500 sets of spikes and studs to turn the grassy course into a skidpan before the 239 men set out on their 4 greasy laps.

Before that the Hardley ladies had just the minimum three for a team but they flew the flag high. Natalie Green led the team home followed by Poppy Tanner (who had run sub 4 hours for the hilly and slippery Clarendon Marathon last Sunday!).  Acting ladies Captain Tamsin Roberts completed the team which finished in the top half of the League.

For the men it was Poppy’s brother Callum who led the team home in 102nd place. To put that in perspective, Callum is an 18 minute 5k runner! It was the first HCCL run for our Australian resident M50 John Robson who was followed by our Out of County member, M50 Sean Bowen who had run the Jersey Marathon in 3:07 last Sunday! Lee Maunder also did well on his first HCCL outing and our two super veterans had the pleasure of watching the front runners float past them before the end of our 3rd lap! 

Dave Wilson has a higher centre of gravity than most of us and sampled the mud at close quarters on lap one on a greasy descent but still finished with a smile on his face!

Our men finished in the bottom half of Division 2 so we need our speed merchants out for the rest of the season to steer clear of demotion.For dates and venues see our Race Diary tab above.  Why spend £40 on a muddy assault course when entry is free for runners affiliated to England Athletics? You can still represent Hardley at the remaining 4 fixtures. Don’t be put off by the locations as we car share and catch up with our club mates.

If Kings Park was wet, greasy and flat the Sunday morning CC6 was wet, greasy and lumpy with over 340' of climb in Manor Farm Country Park, but that's another story!

However several runners from the HCCL race turned out again to represent Hardley with Poppy Tanner an outstanding 5th place to lead the ladies Team home in 2nd place to put them in 2nd place overall!!  Tamsin, John, Lee and Mick were the other back to back racers for Hardley."

Civil Service Cross Country Championships - Parliament Hill - Weds 9 October 2019

Mick Anglim reports,

"Jane Hodge and I both won our age categories at Parliament Hill yesterday.
Conditions were very different to what the same course will be like on 25 January 2020 when the South of England X/C Championships will be held there! There were just a few patches of damp soil compared to the ankle deep mud that we normally experience there and the sun was shining!

Men and women started together with two laps of the 3.2k course for the women and three for the men with over 700’ of climb.
The Southerns will be 8k for women and 15k for the men."

The Clarendon Marathon - Sunday 6 October 2019

Matt Tanner reports,

"Myself and my daughter, Poppy ran the Clarendon marathon last Sunday 6th October.

The weather was on our side (though the previous day's rainfall made for a bit of mud - which added to the fun!) We even managed a sprint at the end to get a 3 hr 59 finish."

Hursley Multi-terrain 10K - Sunday 15 September 2019

Click on the thumbnail to see the big picture of the medal which features some lovely Hursley chimneys.

Simon Ibbotson reports,

Three Hardley Runners, Mike Sleath, Dan Latham and Simon Ibbotson took part in the Hursley Multi-terrain 10K on Sunday. This well-named race took place in the Hursley Estate and included sections of grass, tarmac, concrete, dried mud and a wooden bridge. It was also quite hilly, a 400 ft elevation gain, so not a PB course!

The weather was sunny with a cool light breeze which was perfect. I would definitely recommend giving this a go next year.

SEAA Fell championships - Isle of Wight - 14-15 September 2019

Click on the picture to see a small album

Callum Tanner reports,

It was the 25th anniversary of the SEAA Fell championships with three races spread over two days, and we had Paddy Butler, Mick Anglim, Matt Tanner and myself representing Hardley.

Time is irrelevant in this event and winners in each of the categories is based upon the lowest cumulative positions in all three events, which start at the picture-postcard Ventnor Bay and finish in St.Catherines school.

The first race on Saturday morning is the 3.8k slog up to the top of St.Boniface down (235m elevation) and stumble back down. Someone broke the course record this year, and just to confirm it wasn't any of us!

After a quick trip back to East Cowes for a shower for Callum, and a pub meal and all-too-tempting kip on the beach for Paddy, Hardley reassembled for the longer afternoon race, the Ventnor Horseshoe 12k (443m). Despite the long rest period and the hot weather all Hardley runners made it to the finish, but not without some controversy.

Remembering back to this time last year, Mick fought off all competition for the M70 title in the 2018 meet, needing a sprint finish up the hill for all three races. Fast forward a year and Mick was looking a bit too jolly as he cantered his way to the finish line... I found Mick in the shade with an almighty peel of skin coming off his heel which he'd been running with for half the race, and definitely ruled him out of the final race on Sunday!

As the on-site medics were patching Mick back together again, he was already planning his next couple of weeks training transitioning to the bike whilst he recovered! At this point it seems good timing to wish Mick a full and speedy recovery in time for his upcoming races!

So to Sunday's action and the big one, The Wroxhall round. 21k circular and 487 metres of climbing. Paddy and I were debating who had gained the most injuries over the last two races, and it was one-in-one-out as a fresh faced Matt Tanner arrived ready to make the cramp-ridden three-racers look bad.

A great final effort from the Hardley team as Matt finished 3rd M50 in the final race, Paddy placed a fantastic 10th M50 over the three races and Callum 26th SM. Considering the far-reaching competition we were all pretty satisfied with our weekends efforts!

It's a great weekend of fell running, with big turnouts from London clubs such as Serpentines and Victoria Park & Tower Hamlets as well as Welsh club Mynydd Du.

Hardley had three runners in 2018, four in 2019, it would be great to get an even bigger team next year which is already penciled in for 12th and 13th September 2020.

New Forest Races - Brockenhurst - Sunday 8 September 2019

Dan Latham reports, "Hardley Runners were represented well at this year’s New Forest Marathon Events, the conditions were brilliant a lovely summer's day with a bit of wind to cool us down a little.  Here are some of the stories from our runners, taken from Facebook and Strava posts:


Sally Harbut & Sarah Hood completed the marathon distance for the 2nd year running, enjoying their way round and finishing side by side at the finish.

Chole Riggs & Emma Rogers also ran the whole distance together finishing hand in hand on the finish line, Chloe smashed over 30 mins off her PB and Emma took 20 mins off hers.

Lee Sykes was our first marathoner home, enjoying his way round apart from some cramp at mile 18, but still finishing in a very respectful 3:54

Aaron Pritchard completed the course despite carrying a knee injury the whole way round, but still finished respectably, apparently he was properly knackered at the end!

Lee Maunder after an injury battled training, managed to complete the course well, raising proceeds for the British Lung Foundation, a charity close to his heart, well done Lee! Donations are still open.

Grace Hawker completed her first ever marathon respectably, dad Ian was very proud, after helping Grace with the training.

The Half

Hannah Cockle first home in a great time of 1hr:46s

Liz Mould completed her first half in 1:56:43

Danii Bundy smashed her half PB by 5 minutes

Terry Earney, Giuliana, Sarah & Mike Fitton all completed the distance running the bulk of the race together all completing close to the 2 hour mark. Sarah took 5 1/2 mins off her PB.


Dan Latham finish in 10th place in 40:36.

Ian Craddock was 2nd man home in 52:05.

Katharine Broomfield beat her 10K time by an amazing 10 mins

Annie completed 7K of the course but unfortunately suffered a very nasty trip over some roots, after a journey to A&E she is now resting up a broken hand and fracture to the cheek. We're all wishing Annie a quick recovery.


Vanessa Poucher was third F60 finishing in 42:42.

There was also a great amount of support out on the course, well done to the Hardley family out there cheering everyone on.

Sorry for anyone who we haven't covered, feel free to email Jeremy with any wording, we know there must be others that completed their first distance or broke their PB. Well done all, great performances."

Andy Mansfield adds,

"Yesterday I completed my first marathon, the New Forest, in 5 hours 27 minutes. Couldn’t have done this without all the amazing support from the club, from the normal training sessions, the social runs and the NF marathon training group. Thanks to all, such a brilliant and friendly club. My first thought after finishing was ‘never again’ but now, less than 24 hours later, that thought has changed to ‘what could I do differently, what could I do to get through the wall point at 20 miles, what could I do to knock a bit off that time’. So who knows, maybe just maybe.....

The Beast - Corfe - Sunday 1 September 2019

Martin Loveless reports, "Always a favourite event for the 'off-road' runners of the club, The Beast takes in around 13 miles of Purbeck hills starting at Corfe and heading out to the coast via Worth Matravers before returning via Kingston.

7 runners made it round the 13ish mile course this year enjoying the spectacular views and happy to say that even I managed to be 3 minutes quicker than last year which is always an achievement nowadays!"

The First CC6 - Fleming Park - Sunday 1 September 2019

Joint CC6 Captain, Hannah Cockle reports, "It was a great turn out for the first CC6 of the season with 17 Hardley runners turning up to run at Fleming Park. For the first time, recently at least, the girls outnumbered the boys with 9 ladies and 8 men! It was a beautiful sunny day and the ground was dry. Simon Ibbotson had a fantastic race coming in first for the guys in 30th place! Vicki Clarke and Natalie Green finished top 10 for the ladies - you girls are awesome! We had a few trips and falls during the race but everyone came out alive and smiling! A special mention to Mick Anglim and Lee Maunder who went on to run the Overton 5 miler in the afternoon - that's commitment!"

The 12th and last RR10 - IBM Hursley - Weds 14 August 2019

Click on the picture to see a larger version.  Oh and Graeme picked up a small London Marathon jacket by mistake this evening.  Please let me know if it is yours and we'll get it back to you.

Joint RR10 Captains, Dan and Rob, report, "Well that's it for another year then, it's been a great season, some brilliant runs put on by all the clubs, I think we all had fun doing it and there was plenty of cake!

We'll do a full report of the final standings next week after the results are out, so to tonight's run:

It was Winchester's turn to host the final RR10 at IBM Hursley, the conditions were good; they rain stopped for us and the temperature was fairly mild. The course  this year featured a lap around the cricket pitch before three much larger laps around the grounds over bound gravel paths, stone matting, grass and tarmac. This is always a fairly easy going course with one steady rise up towards the house. There were a lot of runners tonight with no drop out clubs and everyone trying to get their last run in, so don't be alarmed by a higher finishing number, apart from Dan Powell who had a well improved run, everyone finished with a higher token than the last race, due to the number of starters.

If there was a family award it would have gone to the Anglim's tonight with four of the family in out for a run.

A good turn out by the ladies with 8 runners. First home was Vicki Clarke in 6th place, four top ten finishes in a row, amazing performance. Catherine Forster was 2nd home for the club in an excellent 17th place a very high finish  in the V50's. Jane Hodge was 3rd back in a brilliant 47th place and a great performance yet again in the V60's.

An excellent turn our of men tonight with 23 in attendance. Leading the men home was Callum Johnson in 22nd place, Dan Latham in 51st place and Dan Powell in 62nd place. Great to see Jeremy Barber back running after his rib bashing incident a couple of weeks ago.

Well done everyone a great set of results. Look out for a run down of the league in the next week. Thanks everyone for attending this year, we've enjoyed it.

See you soon, Rob & Dan"

The 11th (8th for us) RR10 - Itchen Valley Country Park - Weds 31 July 2019

Picture shows Hannah absolutely dying after overtaking Mick.  He got her back later.  There a big album on Facebook here

Joint RR10 capatins, Dan and Rob report,

"Wednesday was Lordshill's turn to host the RR10 on a very humid night. The course was similar to previous years with a loop round the long grassy field and into the woods and gravel tracks, with a long hill in the middle somewhere, and then another lap before the final wooded section and out to the finish.

It's been a great series yet again and it's been great to see many new faces this year, but it's not over yet! We have one more race and for anyone that hasn't completed one yet, this is your last chance this year, so come on out and enjoy a great trail run.

Back to the race; the ladies had a really good turn out with 7 runners. Vicki Clarke led the ladies home in 6th place, locking in her top ten league position with one more race still to go, well done Vicki. Hannah Cockle was 2nd finisher in 33rd place and Jane Hodge in 39th place. Jane has taken the title for the V60 league with one more race still to go, brilliant running Jane!

The men were led home by Ben Andrew in 36th place, Dan Latham in 49th and Matt Tanner 3rd V50 finishing in 51st place. Mick Anglim finished strongly in the V70's and also secured his 1st place finish in the V70 league with one race still to go. Paul Newby has also secured 2nd place in the V70's, so a one-two for Hardley, well done both.

The final RR10 of the series is at IBM Hursley on 14th August at 7pm start. This is a very beginner friendly course and new runners always welcomed, just wear a club vest. Let's get a big turn out together for the final group photo of the series! See you all there, Rob & Dan"

The 10th (7th for us) RR10 - Janesmoor Pond - Weds 17 July 2019

First a thank you from me to everyone who helped when I took a tumble and especially Chris Harris who stopped and sorted me out.

Dan and Rob report,

"Janesmoor Pond - The one with the long steep rutted hill to the finish!

It was Romsey Road Runners turn to host the RR10 tonight at the Janesmoor pond course, the course was similar to previous years, with lots of undulating gravel track, there was a long steady rise from 2.5 miles in which seemed to go up steadily for a whole mile, good hill work for us all. Eventually we turned off the gravel tracks and into the woods before facing the final long steep set of rises up to the finish.

The ladies team was the best attendance we've had all season with 8 ladies. Chris Harris showed the best improvement tonight finishing 14 places higher than the previous race. It was brilliant to see all the ladies finishing strongly tonight and the top three came home with absolutely smashing times: First back was Vicki Clarke in an amazing 6th place firmly confirming her top ten prowess yet again. Close behind was Poppy Tanner in 9th place, in her first top ten finish. Great to see Charmaine Bradford back and bringing home 3rd place in a brilliant 15th position. Also fabulous age related positions by Catherine Forster, Jane Hodge and Chris Harris. Brilliant team performance!

Some great positions in the men's team as well. Ian Craddock finished in his best ever position by 26 places to finish in 113th. Dan Latham had his best ever finish in 32nd as did Simon Ibbotson in 41st place. The men were led home by Callum Johnson in a great 10th place, James Clarke with probably the best paced performance of the whole field in 11th and Ben Andrew having a great run in 15th. Jeremy Barber also finished strongly despite taking a bit of a tumble in one of the rutted areas.

Great to see everyone having a great run and enjoying their running. Well done all.

The next and penultimate run is at Itchen Valley Country Park on 31st July 2019, with an earlier start time at 7pm. See you there."

The 9th (6th for us) RR10 - Manor Farm Country Park - Weds 10 July 2019

This was a new course at a familar venue.  Thanks to Manor Farm for providing the venue at short notice and to Subbington for the numerous and enthusiastic marsalls and the excellent cakes. 

Dan and Rob report,

"Back at Manor Farm! This time it was Stubbington Green's turn to host and the route was very similar to the regular course a couple of years back, with a big one lap route finishing alongside the river Hamble and the big hill to the finish.

Our most distant club member John Robson came in all the way from Australia and finished in a great position in the V50's in 74th place. Well done to Chris Kidd who took part in his first ever RR10 putting in a strong finish. It was also great to see Matt Captain and Paul Carter making their first appearance this year.

The ladies had a good turn out with 6 runners making up two teams, with some great results too: Vicki Clarke finishing in an amazing 7th place her highest ever finish I believe, Poppy Tanner having a great run to finish in 11th, Hannah Cockle in a brilliant 26th place. Chris and Tamsin also put in consistent performances and it was brilliant to see Annie come in to a massive reception from the Stubbington marshals.

The men were led home by Callum Johnson in a smashing 13th place, closely followed by Mark Causebrook in 18th and Ben Andrew in 33rd. In the V50's Matt Tanner was back on the pace finishing highly in 49th.

The next RR10 is at Janesmoor Pond next Wednesday 17th July, starting at 7:30pm. See you there!"

Miles of Miles - Southampton - Weds 26 June 2019

Coach Chris Harris reports, "The sun shone for us last evening at the Mile of Miles. The leading team was S.A.C , who put together an impressive team finishing with Zac Mohamed, who hardly seemed to touch the ground as he moved around the track! But there were seconds in these top teams 5 teams! Hardly Runners' A Team produced some brilliant times with only a few seconds between the first 3 runners. Alice, Captain of the A Team was the fastest lady and Chris Harris the fastest man.

Hardley Runners' B Team composed of 5 ladies and 5 men, who did brilliantly with Ben and Vicki running twice to ensure we had a full team! A special thanks to Matt and Poppy Tanner who stepped in at the last moment. Not forgetting Matt McDonague who did likewise.

There were over 40 teams that took part last night. The Mile of Miles is a special gathering, when all the local running clubs meet to raise funds for the under privileged people in the Southampton area, this year the charity was "Mind".

The overall team positions and fastest runner will be announced later.

Thank you to Alice, Debbie and our Hardley Runners' A and B Teams - Fantastic Teamwork!"

The 7th (5th for us) RR10 - Manor Farm - Weds 19 June 2019

Joint RR10 Captains, Dan Latham and Rob Wells report, "This evening it was Hedge End Runners turn to host the RR10 at the very popular Manor Farm course. A lovely place to run with grass, gravel, mud, bridges, hills and a great view across the river Hamble to keep us all interested, and what a perfect night for a run nice moderate temperature and a bit of drizzle to keep you cool.

17 men and 6 ladies attended for Hardley which was good to see two full ladies' teams in the results.

Well done to all those cheering in their fellow team mates tonight, I counted 12 of us at one point, which was fantastic to see a noisy purple presence at the finish.

In the ladies it was great so see Annie back out on the course, coming in with a massive cheer from all the Hedge End marshals, well done Annie fantastic effort. There were notable performances by both Hannah Cockle and Tamsin Roberts showing massive improvements in their placements, Hannah improving by 30 places to finish in 33rd position and Tamsin knocking 28 places off to finish in 46th. Leading the ladies home was Vicki Clarke finishing in an amazing 12th place her lowest this season.

The most improved male runner this week was Paul Blundell improving by 30 positions, great effort! John Labbett also showed huge improvement knocking 29 places of last weeks result. It's always great to see the big 3 in the V70s Malcolm Renyard, Mick Anglim and Paul Newby who are consistently finishing highly in the age category, Paul Newby is currently in 2nd place for the league and Malc and Mick each have two first place finishes in this category this year. Lee Maunder also had a great run proving how much you can improve by joining a running club, half a minute quicker on pace compared to last year, even over the longer course this year. Leading the men home was Callum Johnson, smashing out another top ten finish in 10th place amazing performance. Coming in 2nd place was Huw Davies making is first appearance this year and finishing strongly in 45th place.

Great effort everyone a brilliant team atmosphere tonight.

The next race is Whiteley wood on 10th July, see you all there Team!"

HRRL - The Alresford 10K - Sunday 16 June 2019

HRRL Captain, Vicki Clarke, reports, "Alresford 10k....the Newbie to the League!

It seems like a long time since Alresford 10k was welcomed to the HRRL league, so it's odd thinking we've only just got round to running it for the 1st time...but it did not disappoint!
The course itself was probably more undulating than we'd anticipated, with a fairly hefty hill just past the half way point (trying to look effortless whilst seeing your team mates on the other side was definitely easier on the way out going downhill), but there were some stunning views over the countryside and Alresford watermeadows, which (nearly) made up for the hills!

Hardley had full teams for both men and women, and with my (very) rough spreadsheeting, I reckon the men came in 4th in League 2 and the women were 6th...which I think makes us both SAFE from relegation. !!!! Woo!!!

Mark Causebrook led us in today in 24th place, after battling a nose bleed, with Dan Latham following in 59th, Simon Ibbotson in 80th and Mick Anglim finishing the team in 140th and 2nd in his age group ??. Mike Smith rounded off our male entries in a highly respectable 175th place.

For the women, I led us home as 10th female (my first league top 10), with Chris Harris providing valuable support to the team finishing in 127th, a great effort following a recent chest infection (she rewarded herself with some well deserved Alton Sports goodies after!), and Jan Anglim rounding the team off nicely in 173rd and again a Team Anglim 2nd age group place!

I'd definitely recommend this race for next year - it was fantastically well organised, great marshals, a fab t-shirt (enhanced by the spelling errors!), and had some tasty free watercress smoothies to sample at the end!

Next and final season race...Lordshill 10k on 30th June. Currently fully booked, but transfers are available on the facebook swaps page.

Well done everyone!!"

The 6th (4th for us) RR10 - Ampfeld Wood - Weds 12 June 2019

The new course was both scenic and undulating.  The previous two wet days made the going muddy in places but the rain held off for the race.  Bottlenecks were a feature with the result that your webmaster 's first mile was just under 16 minutes.  That and the tailback of cars onto the main road are issues which need to be addressed for next year.  Hardley results are below.  Dan and Rob's report will follow tomorrow and the results will be on the RR10 website (see Links tab above) tomorrow evening.

Man v Horse - Llanwrtyd Wells - Sunday 9 June 2019

This event is a perennial favourite with Hardley runners and rightly so.  This year four members made the journey to Wales: Martin Loveless, Tiff Hanley, Mark lee and Jack Fairbrother.  Congratulations to Martin on completing the Man v Horse 2019 in the time 3:56:52.
Martin reports,
"There were 4 of us from Hardley running which was much better than my last year's solo effort and the good news was that I managed to better my time by around a minute which is always good news nowadays."

Henley Running Festival - Sat/Sun 8/9 June 2019

cover photo, Image may contain: 16 people, people smiling, people standing, sky, outdoor and nature

Jane Hodge reports, "16 tired but happy Hardley Runners took part in a 24 hour relay event at Henley this weekend. Despite 2 nights’ sleep deprivation because of torrential rain all night Friday and freezing conditions on Saturday night we all had a really enjoyable time. The event is much smaller than Endure 24 (which the club has done for the last 2 years) which meant we could greet every runner as they finished and hear how they got on.  We took full advantage of the bar, catering outlets and firepit as well as Adrian’s barbeque from his amazing camper bus. The venue site, Temple Meadows, is very pretty and it was good to watch the boats and rowers passing along the river as we ran the 5 mile route.

We had a lovely surprise visit on Saturday morning from Ray and Linda who had walked to Henley along the river from their weekend stay in nearby Marlow. It all went downhill from there as 3 runners (Brendon, Aaron and Karen) made a bid for the Navigator’s Hat by getting lost on the course. And Ann mislaid her mobile which was on silent so we couldn’t ring to locate it. We searched everywhere—her tent, her bedding, her car, the area around her tent etc. but no joy. Then we twigged it was on vibrate so we rang it, posting people all around the likely spots where it could be. A shamefaced Ann then pulled the phone out of her bra!

We had 2 teams which both did 29 laps. Hardley Running only just beat Hardley Bothered by 14 minutes which over 24 hours is really close."

The 5th (3rd for us) RR10: Fleming Park: Weds 5 June 2019

Joint RR10 Captains, Dan Latham and Rob Wells, report, "Race 5 of the RR10 league was at Fleming Park, Eastleigh. The course was the usual long straight start and finish with the two lap circuit up and down the slopes of the old golf course.

24 of us Hardley Runners turned out, with 5 ladies (one more and we would have had two teams) and 19 men making up 3 teams (1 runner away from making 4 teams). These are great races hopefully we can get a couple more runners along next time to fill up the teams.

A great team run from the ladies with Kelly Anetts first in at 52nd, Hannah Cockle in 61st, and Jayne Hodge in 66th.

The men were led home by Callum Johnson in 19th Position, Mark Causebrook in 27th and Ben Andrew in 43rd.

Well done Mick Anglim and Jane Hodge for getting round following a 10K earlier in the day, and Jeremy Barber nursing an imploded hamstring!

Some great results around given the higher attendance at this race, compared to lower numbers of participants we have usually seen this season. Well done to all those taking part for the fist time this year, great effort.

Going forward we'll collect results near the finish line so we can all cheer in our fantastic team :-)

The next race is next Wednesday 12th June at Ampfield Wood, Hursley. This is a new venue which Halterworth will host. As always new runners are welcome and it would be great to see loads of Hardley Runners making the most of a new course to run. See you there Dan & Rob."

The Club Championships: HRRL Race 10 - The Netley 10K - Sunday 19 May 2019

Nineteen members battled for the silverware at the Netley 10K.  It was an excellent morning for a run though the heavens opened towards the end so some slower runners got an unexpected shower and the prize giving was curtailed.

But on the the Hardley championships.  As well as first past the post winners we have trophies for age adjusted results based on WAVA percentages

First home for the women was Alice Rudd and first on WAVA was Jane Hodge.  For the men it was a clean sweep for the Renyards with Nathan first home and Malc first on WAVA. 

I have also updated the Geoff Mills spreadsheet (see above for link).  Please let me know if you spot any discrepancies.  Assuming the spreadsheet is ok, 66 men represented the club on 409 occasions with Mick Anglim top with 28.  40 women turned out on 173 times with Chris Harris in the lead with 16.

Well done to everyone.

ABP Southampton Races - Sunday 5 May 2019

There was a massive Hardley turnout for races from the fun run to the marathon.  Well done all. 

Claire Aplin reports,

Sunday 5th May 2019 saw 32 Hardley Runners take to the streets of Southampton to compete in the Marathon, Half Marathon or 10k event. Dotted around the course were several other Hardley Runners and their families, cheering on their club mates. 

Whilst the weather for spectators was a tad on the chilly side it was perfect for running, with the sun hidden behind light cloud for the most part, with a very light, cooling breeze. Unlike last year when Southampton was scorchingly hot, runners were able to enjoy their runs in a comfortable temperature.

As per usual all athletes pushed themselves to the limits. Liz Mould undertook her very first marathon, finishing 9th in her category! And the amazing Annie Bruce-Low completed the half marathon in a PB time and was first in her category. A newcomer to Hardley Runners, Andy Mansfield, was elated to knock 6 minutes off of his Half Marathon time. And father and son team, Steven and Joe Avery, both pushed themselves though the 10k, achieving PBs. This was Joe’s first race, other than Parkruns and he finished in a fantastic 50minutes and 1 second. "

The Second RR10 - Stoney Cross - May Day 2019

Joint RR10 Captain, Dan Latham, reports, "Race 2 of the RR10 league was hosted by Totton running club at Stoney Cross. The weather conditions were ideal and the course was the usual; long fast down hill first mile down the gravel track and through the woods, 2.7 miles of undulation and that "lovely" long mile up the concrete hill!

A great turn out for the ladies with 8 runners, if we'd have had one more we would have fielded 3 teams. Poppy Tanner had a great run leading the ladies home in a brilliant 16th place, followed by Jane Hodge in 27th which is a great result in the V60's and Tamsin Roberts having a great run in 42nd place.

17 men attended tonight, not the greatest attendance we've had, enough runners to make up 3 teams. Callum Johnson led the men home in a fantastic 8th Place, with Callum Tanner in 27th and Dan Powell in 47th.

Some good results throughout tonight, good effort all. We all deserved the smashing array of cakes put on by Totton after the finish, that's why we run right!

The next race is our own host event, WHICH HARDLEY RUNNERS CANNOT RUN, we need as many helpers as we can get for this, if you could all reply to Rob's email to let us know whether you're available. If anyone can bake cakes it's only fair we but on an equally good spread :-).

The next race we can run at is; Fleming Park on Weds 5th June starting at 7:30pm, we hope to see many runners there and a reminder that new runners are very very welcome, it's free to attend you just have to purchase and wear a club vest and be able to run 4.5 miles at any pace. See you there."

The London Marathon - Sunday 28 April 2019

Well done to the three Hardley members who completed the London Marathon this year. Also to Sue Sleath who now represents Romsey and to Dave Turnbull who some members will recollect from the Lakelnd 50 .

Some members may not know that we get a London place each year.   This year it went to Hannah Cockle who has written an excellent report which you can read here

Our results and those of our two friends are below.  Click on the names for more information.  It is uncanny how close Dave was to Hannah's figures.  In the end she beat him by two seconds.

10 Hardley runners enjoyed a fast flat course and good conditions for this year's Eastleigh 10K. Well done all and special mention to Malc Renyard and Jane Hodge who were first in category and Graham Robbins for a new PB.  Coincidence has a long arm.  Is there a statistician out there who can tell us what are the odds of 3 Hardley finishers in a row all being called Sarah?

HRRL Race 7 - The Fleet Half - Sunday 17 March 2019

Four Hardley runners went to Fleet for this pre-London half.  Congratulations to Lee for a new PB.

Jane Hodge reports, "The Fleet half marathon always has a big field: it's one of the traditional pre-London races as well as a HRRL event. This year the finishers of over 2,500 were boosted by the race being a qualifying event for the EA Masters Age Group (which is the opportunity to represent England in the half marathon). The rain had cleared up so, although it was cold and windy, the sun kept us warm. The course was traffic free and a mixture of narrow urban streets and country lanes, this made for a very crowded race and I was tripping over people all the way. I trotted alongside the 1:50 minute pacer for 9 miles or so until the undulating course and lack of training slowed me down. There seemed to be no flat parts, only up or down!"

The Grizzly and the Grizzly Cub - Seaton - Sunday 10 March 2019

Well that was fun.  The weather forecast was 50mph winds which made the prospect of the Stairway to Heaven interesting, to say the least.  But all was well; yes the wind was very strong but not dangerously slow, temperatures were good and the sun shone, apart from a few blustery showers.

For those as don't know, The Grizzly is 19 miles and a bit over 300 feet of climbing.  It includes 2 stretches along the beach, various bits of wading, lots of hills, lots of mud, including the famous Valley of the Bogs and the ascent of the cliff know as the Stairway to Heaven.  It is brilliantly organised by Axe Valley Runers and there are loads of helpful and encouraging marshals.  All in all a very good thing and an event everyone should try at least once. If you prefer to start gently then there's the Cub which is only nine miles.

Here are views from two ends of the field.  Sue Sleath reports, "I did my first Grizzly in 1997 and I've done all but 2 since then. (I was on holiday for one and missed last year's due to the snow). Can't remember ever enjoying it so much! Thank you to all the marshals, organisers, fellow runners and spectators. You were all part of a fabulous day. :-) Now, when can I sign up for next year?"  Sue runs for our Romsey friends nowadays but is still a Hardley member.  It is great to see her back to running well after a frustrating period of injury.

Meanwhile at the other end of the field (the back in case you were wondering) your webmaster, Jeremy Barber, was having a lovely time.  This was my 9th Grizzly so I've a long way to go to catch Sue.  But I may already have spent as much time of the course as she has.  First we we able to park on the sea front which was brilliant.  Then AVR sorted out my friend Peter Brunning (a visiting Haverhill Runner who had left his number in Cambridge) with incredible efficency.  Then we managed to meet most of the Hardley crew which was a bit of luck bearing in mind the crowds at the start.  The first five miles were a battle with Sally Harbut and great fun it was.  Then she went off to the Cub and I carried on.  At that point I also lost Peter who transferred to the Cub.  A mile or so later there was two way traffic when I had the inspirational experience ofseeing the front runners speed towards me.  I wish I could run like that but being a 'steady' runner does have the advantage that I have lots more time to enjoy the experience(s).  I made up a few places in the Valley of the Bogs as newcomers pussyfooted round the deep bits.  The wind battered the trees but we were sheltered by them and the bits falling down gave extra grip in the mud. The stretch on the beach about mile 16 was wind assisted which was great and the Stairway to Heaven was interesting without ever feeling dangerous.  So all in all it was a great experience and I have the sore knees and battered toes to prove it.

Hardely results are below.  You can see the full results here.  And here's my photo album which gives you an idea of what you can look forward to if you sign up for next year.

The 8th and last CC6 - Wilverley - Sunday 10 March 2019

Roger Morgan – joint CC6 captain, reports,

"The last race of the CC6 season was hosted by New Forest runners who certainly produced a varied and challenging course at Wilverley.

It was very windy although the rain which had soaked the course overnight kept away. Classic cross country.

Nine men and two ladies represented Hardley. One lower number than usual probably owing to the other races available on the day. However it was very encouraging to welcome four runners who had not raced a CC6 this year bringing the total number of club members to fifty who have raced this year in one or more races.

Special mention to Callum Johnson (9) and Alice Rudd (3) as our top two finishers with Nathan Renyard (12) and Ben Andrew (26). New club member Matt Hawes (74) made a fine debut run".

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

The Oakhaven Half - Sunday 3 March 2019

Jane Hodge reports, "Five Hardley runners (Mark Darcy, Sarah Fitton, Roger Morgan, Terry Earney and myself) did the Oakhaven trail ½ marathon on Sunday in rain, high wind and lots of mud. Unfortunately, because of a marshalling error Mark did an extra 2 miles. Terry paced Sarah to a PB which was brilliant in such adverse conditions and I was first V60."

Well done all.  Times are below.  You can see the full results here.  If you'd like to see the photos then you'll need the bib numbers to search on the Charles Whitton site.

The 7th (yes 7th) CC6 - Ashurst - Sunday 17 February 2019

Hannah Cockle and Roger Morgan – joint CC6 captains, report,

"The CC6’s this season just seem to get better with each race.

This year Totton RC treated us to a new course starting at Ashurst Camp Site. A great event venue with good access and plenty of parking all close to the start and finish area. The temperature was a balmy 8 degrees C with blue skies and birds singing.

A record number of 23 Hardley Runners created a purple sea of colour amongst a large turnout.

The 5.2 mile course was a wonderful mixture of fast forest gravel tracks turning off into Dear Leap and Longdown Enclosures for some more traditional cross country mud as promised. Apart from some small inclines the course was perhaps one of the flattest for the Forest.  An abundant supply of Totton cakes at the finish line – warm sunshine and plenty of smiles and chat. It does not get any better.

The results:

Fastest lady was Lauren Johnson coming in at 8th position and fastest man Sean Bowen 35th.   We had 2 men first timers and 4 lady first timers. Welcome and well done all.

The last race of the season is at Wilverley on 10th March. It is possibly the last CC6 to be held at this venue so if you have not tried a CC6 for a while or at all this would be great one.

Finally – if you left a really nice SIS water bottle at Ashurst we have it with the club box for the next race."

Thanks again to everyone who helped to put the event on for the 700+ runners who competed. Thanks also to those who represented Hardley by running and particularly for those who also volunteered."

HRRL Race 6 - The Ryde 10 - Sunday 3 February 2019

HRRL Captain, Vicki Clarke, reports,

Ryde 10miles – The Beautiful One with the Hills!

With much of the country being battered by snow and plummeting temperatures, there was potential for this year's Ryde 10miler on 3rd Feb to be a grim race. However, although we woke up to freezing temperatures, the morning was sunny, fresh and had minimal wind – basically, perfect race conditions!

Just four intrepid Hardley Runners made the journey across the water, to line up with near 500 other runners, ready to brave the hills. This race is not for the feint hearted, with over 700 feet of elevation, but the scenery definitely makes it worthwhile. We pass cute cottages, beach huts, rolling hills, stunning beaches, and relaxed pubs, before a quick last downhill kilometre to the finish.

We were led in by Dan Latham in a highly respectable 1:11:32 for 92nd place, followed by myself in 1:14:58 to come 14th female. Mick Anglim had a fantastic run to come 1st in his age group (again!) in 1:20:29, and the ever smiling Mark Lee finished in 1:26:39 rounding off our entrants.

This race is well worth a go, and I'd also recommend staying an extra day or two to take in the island!

Well done to those who competed! Next up....Fleet half on 17th March!

The 6th CC6 - Kings Garn Gutter 20 January 2019

Hannah Cockle and Roger Morgan – joint CC6 captains, report,

"Another great race. Excellent dry and sunny day and plenty of mud. The 4.2 mile course sped by for the 19 runners including 4 women and 15 men.

Plenty of smiles with over 60% of runners improving on their last CC6 place. So the steep hill climb at the end of the two lap hilly gravel and mud course was great running conditions for our club.

We are very fortunate to have such a fun race series throughout the winter. Over 40 club members have now competed this season. The next race is 17 February – normally at Denny Wood although there may be a relocation this year. So if you have not yet had the time or inclination to run a CC6 we would love to see you."

The Fifth CC6 - Badger Farm - Sunday 6 January 2019

CC6 Captains, Roger Morgan and Hannah Cockle, report

A great start to the New Year on a fine dry morning for the biggest yet turnout by Hardley Runners. There really was a tremendous atmosphere amongst the club members which bodes well  for the rest of the race series. 

Six women and sixteen men raced for Hardley around the five mile undulating course which was remarkably dry for the time of year. There was a very large turnout of runners which kept the race going at a fast pace throughout especially were the course follows fairly narrow bridle ways around the Winchester countryside.

The Hardley women were led home by Vicki Clarke (10th). Natasha Hennessey (57th) in her second race is showing tremendous fast improvement . Chris Harris (79) Jacqui Healey (82) and Sally Harbutt (88) put in excellent runs. Katharine Broomfield (107) made her debut in the CC6 series arriving in a very respectable position.

For the men we lost Dan Powell after a mile with injury so we all wish him well with his recovery. This meant Callum Johnson (13) led the men home. Our second runner was Dan Latham (28) Graham Robbins(50) Simon Ibbottson   (57) coming in strongly.

So far this season eleven women and twenty eight men have represented Hardley Runners spanning all age groups. If everybody turns up on the same day we will have to get a bigger tent!

Hardley results are below.  The full results will be on the CC6 website the evening after the race.  Here's a Hardley picture album from Dan, Jeremy and Hammy and here's the full one from Hammy with over 1,400 pictures.
