Results for 2021

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 a prolific racer who represented Hardley in pretty well every local race even into his 80s. To celebrate his love of racing his daughters donated two floating trophies, one for women and one for men. They are awarded annually to the two Hardley members who represent our Club in the most races in the RR10, HRRL, HCCL and CC6 Leagues plus the Hampshire, South of England and National Cross Country Championships. The more races you complete, the more points you get, with a current maximum of 35 events.

Sadly all none of these races have taken place in the 20/21 season but I'm sure the committee will think of something.

5K Isolation series 2021

Week 18

Here's the results summary.  Dan reports

5K Challenge Week 58.

Week 58 was a windy one and running conditions were definitely harder, however that didn't stop Hardley Runners and friends from achieving:

Jo Avery ran her best time this year 5 seconds off 24 mins, apparently Jo's motivation for this cracking effort was a small window of opportunity before the Chinese takeaway was delivered! Caroline Richmond ran only 3 seconds off PB in 27:37. Matt Tanner a week after his marathon was only 8 seconds away from his target. Well done to Ann Brucelow who has run her 10th 5K in a row since returning back to running.

This week was national Ultra Running Week and Jeremy Barber took on the 5K challenge in ultra running style, taking a back pack with him, taking in 3 drinks stops and completing in a time of 1:08:59, wava of 25.27%, Ultra Spirit Brilliance Jeremy. I thought I would take the opportunity to congratulate the Ultra and Long Distance specialists in the club that have taken part in this 5K challenge, well done for giving it a go, and for showing a different side to your running and setting some impressive times. Well done everyone!

5K Challenge Week 57.

In the sunniest week of the year so far 31 runners went out to do their 5K. The fastest time this week was from Graham Robbins in 20:12. Poppy Tanner was the quickest lady with 20:43 in strong winds around Goodwood circuit. This week we also had two National Class Scores; an 81.28% from Christina Searle as part of a 10K run and an 81.04% from Jane Hodge within her 5m CC6 run. Mary Corbett and Jane ran their CC6 at the same time and Mary also had a great run just 4 seconds away from her 2021 best within a longer 5 mile run. Chris Kidd ran another Sub30 time which was a personal target for him some weeks back. Well done everyone. Remember there's a bank holiday Monday next week so no excuse not to get out to run ??

Mick Anglim ran a superb 5K time within a longer run at the National Duathalon event in Yorkshire with a time of 23:42 and the highest WAVA this week in 77.41%. Karen Denham was only 12 seconds away from her best time this year. In the Garden Run league there were some new contenders who took up the challenge at Jeremy's garden parkrun; in Pilgrimage fancy dress Jane Hodge beat the course record despite moles on the course in a time of 27.08, followed by Mary Corbett in 32:41 and Jeremy in 34:02.

CC6 Month 2 - We are still top of the league

The numbers have been crunched and the CC6 website (see Links tab above) has been updated with the full results.

And we are still top of the league.  It is a close run thing and we'll need more excellent performances to stay top.  So please get out and do your March run and report details to Hannah.  If you've done one already then how about having another go and seeing if you an improve your time.  You can run in March whether or not you have taken part before so don't be shy.  All you need is a five-mile off-road route with start and finsih close to each other.  And we have had some good news.  The season has been extended by a month so there will be an April run as well as March.

The First CC6 - January 2021

Good news.  Hardley fielded 24 runners: 12 women and 12 men.  Things are a bit different this season because of Covid.  Runers chose their own 5 mile, off-road course starting and finishing at or near the same point.  Times have been reported to CC6 HQ and we'll have to wait and see what they make of the results. In the meantime, here they are in alphabetical order.  Thanks very much to Hannah Cockle for coordinating our teams.  Anyone can join in for the next race.  Just run 5 miles as explained above and report your time to Hannah.  So come on everyone, give it a go!

It was a fairly windy old week, making for a really tough effort when running against it. 35 runs were recorded and the fastest time this week was from James Clarke in 17:39, the fastest time recorded this year so far. Karen Denham recorded the fastest female time and WAVA in 22:51 69.59% and Mick Anglim again recorded the overall highest WAVA score at 78.69% with an identical time as the previous week. Grace Hawker recorded her best time this year in 28:49, the third time this year she has knocked a chunk off. Roger Tansley improved his target time by over 2 minutes. Hayley Coates knocked a couple of seconds off her 2021 best. Jan Anglim recorded her best time this year only 4 seconds away from her target. It hasn't been the easiest couple of weeks to run with the weather, but 15 runners are within 1 percent of breaking their target, wait for the winds to drop and I'm sure these runners will break through. Well Done all great running.

We hope you enjoy the challenge and look forward to seeing you improve towards your target. All the runners are here to encourage you and help you and to have fun running, and from us all WELCOME!

29 runners completed 5K's this week, the highest return we have ever seen! And everybody ran there best 5K time in 2021! ??5 runners have already beaten their target time; Chris Kidd has been targetting a sub 30 run for 18 months and squeezed under the bar today in 29:59 a 3.16% improvement to his target WAVA. Caroline Richmond ran a PB to achieve a time of 31:13 improving her target WAVA score by 2.24%. After 41 weeks of continued 5K running Jeremy Barber beat his target by 2% with a time of 26.06.

Other items to note; Kim Latham completed her 5K in 1 year around the tough Wilverley course. Jeremy continues with his garden parkrun something else the challenge caters for, why not challenge him by making your own garden 5K!

Many runners changed their course this week to comply with the 2021 guidance; making loop courses or out & backs, with the aim being to avoid any elevation loss (down hill running). Well done for adapting it looks like we all have some great routes we can go at.

Hope to see you all and more next week. Reminder that you can join at any time and can run as many or as little as you want. Take care and have fun running!
