Long Eaton 5 – Sunday 11th of September 2016.

Long Eaton 5

Sunday 11th of September 2016.

This race starts at West Park Leisure centre and if you are used to the Long Eaton Park Run it runs around part of the course. There is ample parking plus even an overflow field to park in. Ideally you get there early to park as near as you can tho. :)

The race does start on the grass but is a fast and flat course taking a detour out of the park around a few roads and then finally back into the park to the finish on the grass.


The conditions were good but maybe just a tad too hot for what is basically a 5 mile sprint!!


Chris W – 31.26
Brian – 33.42 PB
Brendan – 35.01
Clare – 36.08
Michael C – 37.28 PB
Sharon – 38.55 PB – 1st FV45
Barry – 45.24
Neil – 46.47

Wilne 10K – Sunday 4th of September 2016.

Wilne 10K

Sunday 4th of September 2016.

This race is a nice flat course but two laps! The only other downside is the races popularity, places are limited to 1000’s runners and it fills up fast and if you start in the wrong place you will not get away fast (if you are going for a fast time of course 😛 )





Before the race it did threaten to rain but it held off for this one so this year it made the conditions just about right when normally it is quite a hot one!

For me this was a race after a night out in Notts – I didn’t get in till 1.00 am and then slept badly from 4.00am due to a headache. I did fell it a little when the race started but soon forgot about it and had quite a good second lap. Did feel a groin strain at 8 miles but kept it going. It was a little painful in the evening but other than that it went quite well. (i’m always looking for excuses :P)


Ken – 37.39
Spray – 38.33

2016 Double or Quits Race

Double or Quits Race

Saturday 28th of August 2016.

The course is around Shipley Park so for anyone that knows Shipley Park they know that means it is an undulating course.


The race is either 1 x 5 mile lap or 2 laps depending on a few options
1 – your training plan
2 – how you feel on the day
3 – if you simply wish to put yourself through the pain of 2 laps!!

The course has varying different types of terrain including some tarmac sections with speed bumps. To cap it all it had been raining earlier in the day plus more was expected so the choice was normal running trainers or something else – maybe cross country trainers which is what I plumped for.

I did two laps last year and went for it again this year but it so took it out of me this year! I don’t know, maybe it was the rain, it did rain but we got away with it lightly or maybe it was the trainers! Luckily the rain wasn’t too bad for the under 1 hour and 45 finished but those left running would have hated it even more especially when it chucked it down!

Anyway – less of my bleating —–


5 Mile

Barry – 48.41 – 1st MV65 (no prize for this but recognition in the results :) )

10 Mile

Brian – 1.13.08
Brendan – 1.13.21
Clare – 1.15.43 – 1st Vet Lady
Sharon – 1.23.38 – 2nd LV45
Michael – 1.25.41
Richard Fildes – 1.30.21
Simon – 1.31.22

Special mentions go to —

Clare retained her 10 mile 1st Vet lady award for the 3rd time in succession.

Rolls Royce Piggs Trophy 10K – Wednesday 7.00pm – 3rd of August 2016

Rolls Royce Piggs Trophy 10K

Wednesday 7.00pm – 3rd of August 2016

This is an annual race that our club attends in large numbers especially as is counts on our Road Running Club Championship Calendar, it is also this year additionally our 10K Club Championship Handicap race and it is also run on a Wednesday night which is our club run night as well.

The race is organised by Rolls Royce Harriers with the race headquarters at the Mickleover Football club ground. The race starts nearby and heads out across the country roads and then back up the cycle path to Mickleover. Everybody quite likes the country road section but the cycle path section is 4K, slightly uphill, and seems to really drag.


The main results are given in the Mickleover Football Club bar after the race. Strangley SRC always seem to be the last club to leave the bar (seems like every Wednesday evening training session :O )


Ateyeb Yasin – 35.12 – 1st
Dan Wilson – 37.36 – 6th
Ken Tomllinson – 38.07 – 7th – 1st V40
Dean Bethell – 39.09 – 8th – 2nd V40
James Spray – 39.09 – 9th
Brian Warner – 41.58
Robert Lane – 43.56
Brendan Devlin – 44.02
Clare Harrison – 45.00 – 1st FV35

Lucy Goss – 50.52
Matt Harris – 50.58

Great Northern Half

This is a relatively new event and the first time that a half option has been available.

This challenge of approximately 26 and 15 miles, depending on how far you want to go of course follows footpaths, byways, tracks, and minor roads, and with the kind permission of the Duke of Rutland, goes through the Belvoir Estate.
