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 πŸ˜› )

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)

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.

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
or
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 —–

Great Northern Half

This is a relatively new event and the first time that a half option has been available. There were a few teething issues such as the muddy car park and no official times for those who entered on the day which was a little disappointing as it was a chip timed event. In addition to this is was a very cold day :(

Belvoir Challenge 15M

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. Both routes start and finish at Harby Village Hall and are clearly way-marked with coloured tape. There are checkpoints roughly every 5 miles providing free drinks and snacks.

Charity Cheque Presentation 2015

Charity Cheque Presentation 2015

On the 2nd of December 2015 we presented cheques to our two nominated charities. Following our successful 2015 10K Race we were able to donate money to two charities.

The British Heart Foundation whose mission is to win the fight against cardiovascular disease and our vision is a world in which people do not die prematurely or suffer from cardiovascular disease.

We support this charity following the passing of one of our member’s parents. This is to show our support/respect and appreciation for this member who also sponsors our annual Sinfin Classic 10K race through his business at M&D Engineering Ltd.

JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) who are a type 1 diabetes charity who fund research to cure, treat and prevent type 1. They work with government, academia and industry to accelerate research in the UK and within healthcare policy to ensure that the outcomes of research are delivered to people with type 1 in the UK. They give support and a voice to people with type 1 and their families.

We support this charity as Fiona’s daughter has Type 1 Diabetes. Fiona avidly participates to raise money for the charity throughout the year at Marathons / Half Marathons and the odd charity evening. Other Sinfin Runners have also participated in Marathons to help support the cause.

This was my first overseas attempt at a race. The weather was pretty warm at 20 degrees so maybe too hot. I must admit that I was hoping for a slightly better time and to get a PB but I did make a bit of a schoolboy error at the start of the race by starting too far back – I spent about the first 4K weaving in and out of runners and trying to avoid being tripped up.
