In the individuals standings, the best 6 of the 9 races are counted. The Hinckley runners completing 6 or more races were:
Kate Perkins – 7th Senior Female

In all, 75 of our club’s members took part this year with 27 first timers (the number of races in brackets, and in bold are those who took part in an LRRL race for the first time):
Elizabeth Aspden-Mansfield (9) *100% Award*, Odette Foxall (8), Chris Rawson (7), Kate Perkins (7), Geoffrey Oliver (6), Mark Frost (6), Anne Ashton (5), Céline Guéry (5), Greg Pollard (5), Richard Whitelegg (5), Vincent Iliffe (5), William Pither (5), Charlotte Sinclair (4), Chris Simpson (4), Jenny Green (4), Matthew Mann (4), Richard Pearson (4), Rolf Hoelmer (4), Sarah Thi (4), Simon Wiggins (4), Alan Morris (3), Edward Nixon (3), Elaine Barrett (3), Elaine Wischhusen (3), Erica Fisher (3), Gayle Brown (3), Jessica Lester (3), Leanne Byard (3), Lucy Masser (3), Michelle Fowler (3), Nick Moore (3), Penny Masser (3), Simon Birch (3), Andrea Earley (2), Andy Damant (2), Harry Langham (2), Ian Sylvester (2), James Brown (2), Joanne Williams (2), Joe Langham (2), Julia Waite (2), Kerry Wittering (2), Louise Damant (2), Mark Hubbard (2), Matthew Knight (2), Mike Welch (2), Nicola Dutton (2), Nicola Williamson (2), Richard Guest (2), Ruth Mansfield (2), Simon Earley (2), Amanda Knight (1), Andrew Dolphin-Rowland (1), Chris Langham (1), Christine Harris (1), Christopher Anagnostopoulos (1), Diane Wildbur (1), Elaine Doran (1), James McBean (1), Jamie Richards (1), Jane Wheeler (1), Jayne Thomas (1), Jenny Cooling (1), Jessica Daly (1), Jonathan Strong (1), Judy McSharry (1), Katy Mitchell (1), Lee O’Brien (1), Natalie Cheung (1), Philip Chisnall (1), Robert Dimbleby (1), Roy Russell (1), Sally Henderson (1), Stephanie Harris (1), Stephen Penney (1)
For the second year running, Liz has earned the 100% award. This will be proudly presented at the club awards night in early 2019.
Kate’s 7th place means she only just missed out on an award from the league (which go to the top 6 seniors and top 3 in each vets age category).
Unfortunately the LRRL does not have an 80+ category but if there was I suspect the winner might be Geoff Oliver.
Finally a special mention to Simon Birch who achieved the race win at the John Fraser 10, which also makes him 10 Mile Leicestershire county champion.
Don’t forget as well the HRC Presidents Shield which is awarded to best performing male and female runner (age graded) …… which our LRRL rep Mr Langham will reveal at a later date!
Congratulations from Hinckley RC to this years overall individual champions Tom Whitmore (Charnwood AC) and Joanna Male (West End), and big thanks to all the organising clubs, the marshals and officials, the LRRL committee and everyone who made it all possible.
Thank you to all the HRC members who represented the club this season, and to all those who came along to support and take photos. I hope you enjoyed it and will be back for more next year. Now on with the cross country season!

As some of you may know, each year we award a presentation called the Presidents Shield. This is Presented by our very own esteemed Club President, Geoff Oliver.
It is awarded to HRC members, individually for men and women, and is based on their age graded times for each LRRL race.
So as to make it harder for those among you who are gifted at math I have only given the results as far as the Joy Cann 5 race.
Here are the results of our Quadrathon on 8th July:
