Tues 26th β€” 5K Time Trial

Tuesday night will be the next club 5k time trial. Meet at Logix park in the usual place at the benches (if you know where that is…) or 6:15 for 6:30 depart from Leisure Centre for a warm up jog to the start.

If you haven’t done it before, it’s basically running a timed 5k. A bit like a parkrun but on a Tuesday πŸ™‚Β Good luck. Here are the results from the previous time trials.

Thursday night route – 14 Sep

Please study the routes carefully as they are not in the ‘big book’!

We will be heading out along Burbage Common Lane – the first 5 miles takes us to Earl Shilton after which we will be running on street-lit roads but please wear hi-viz tops as it will be dark by the end of our run.

Long route: 8.9 miles

Short route : 6.7miles

6.15pm meet for a 6.30pm prompt departure

See you there


LRRL Results 2017

The final results have been announced for the LRRL 2017 season, which concluded on Saturday 3rd September with the John Fraser 10 race.

In the individual awards, Chris Langham has earned the award of 3rd Vet 45 (and 18th place in the league overall) after an outstanding season of racing.

Chris Langham racing in the John Fraser 10 mile road race

In all, 50 members of HRC took part in the summer league’s 7 races: West End 8, Gaddesby 7, Swithland 6, Hungarton 7, Joy Cann 5, Hermitage Carl Rutt 10k and John Fraser 10.

Three Hinckley runners completed the “100%” of representing the club in all 11 of the Winter and Summer league races and these were Chris Langham, Liz Aspden-Mansfield and Kate Perkins – what a commitment.

I have excerpted the league tables for Hinckley members below, and elsewhere on this website you can find full results for every race and you can find the full league tables on the LRAN site.

In the club league side of things, both the Mens and Ladies team have finished 8th out of the 10 in their leagues, only just avoiding the bottom two which would have meant relegation. So I am pleased to say both will still be in Div 1 next year! Despite strong running the lower turnouts for some races meant our teams did not do as well this year as last.

Our thanks to the organisers of the league and all the clubs and volunteers putting on the races. Congratulations to all the winners and to Matt Adcock and Jo Male who were the overall champions of the league this year.

Men’s Table

(Points are allocated 500 pts for 1st place, 499 pts for 2nd place, and so on. Best 5 scores count.)

Thursday Routes – 7th Sep

Long : W33 : 8.6 miles
(not in the ‘big book so please see link for map)


Short – the same route, but when you reach Morrisons, head straight back to ‘base’ which will give you a 6 (just over)mile route.

I have chosen this route as the first half is ‘around the lanes’ but the second half is on street-lit roads as sadly we now need to be thinking about being ‘visible’ in the dark. If you are doing the longer route, you need to consider wearing hi-viz as by 7.45pm is is getting dark.

6.15-6.20 meet so we can please leave promptly at 6.30pm.

See you there


Tues Training – 5th Sep

Coaches will now be repeating the first and last sessions in the 4 week training blocks so you’ll all be able to monitor your progress.
You will have a piece of chalk to run with:
Set 1 – 4×90 second reps (you will mark where you get to with the chalk on the ground) you will have 2 mins to get back to the start before you go again with the aim being to get back to your chalk mark
Set 2 – 4x1min reps (same as above)
Set 3 – 2×30 second reps (with 90 secs to get back to the start)
Cutting across the grass to get back to the start on your rest will be acceptable
Meet from 6:15 at the Leisure centre for a 6:30 depart or at Queens Park for a 6:45pm start
This is the last session in a 4 week block of shorter/sprint focused reps


Non members are welcome to come along to try out the club – just come along to Leisure Centre

Thursday Routes – 31 Aug

Long: S09 ‘long’ in the big book (8 miles)

Short: S09 ‘short’ in the big book (6.9 miles)

Just a note to bear in mind…sadly the nights are beginning to close in so it is time to dig out those hi-viz tops as you will be needing them in the next couple of weeks, particularly on a Thursday when we aren’t back at base until around 7.45pm.
Usual arrangements for Thursday’s run…Meet at leisure centre from 6:15 for 6.30pm prompt departure.
For those requiring a longer run, there are opportunities to ‘add a loop’ to extend the 8 miler if you wish but I’ve kept it to 8 miles for those who are racing at Countesthorpe (10 mile league race) on Sunday.


Tuesday Training – 29 Aug

Short speed session at Barleyfield, off Wheatfield Way behind McDonald’s off the A47. Drills to start, then Sprint relays in groups of 3. Emphasis on style and balance. Meet at the Leisure Centre at 6:20 to leave at 6:30. Session to start at 6:45


Non-members – come along and try out the club – just come along to the leisure centre, we meet outside in front.
