Well done to everyone who turned up on Wednesday evening for what’s probably the toughest league race of them all, Hungarton 7. Some great results, and a brilliant team turnout. HRC League will be updated soon.
Hinckley will be hosting other members of the Vision 2020 network on Tuesday and we are hoping for a good turn out. Due to the weather I will not be committing to a venue until the day so please watch this space.
Well done to everyone who turned up on this beautiful evening and ran the 1 mile and 5k races.
This year, the Loros events team have taken the responsibility for the entries and results. If you have any queries, please contact them on: 0116 231 8431 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Car Park – we’re sorry that a number of you were caught up in delays getting out of the car park after the event. Car Parking is always an issue for us and with all this adverse torrential weather, most of the ground inside the Water Park was water logged and we were unable to use. A late decision was therefore taken to put all cars in the outside car park. Cars have to exit onto a main road, single file, which again did not help the situation. In hindsight, we should have used more manpower, but we can only apologise for the delays on leaving. It is something that we will be looking at in our race de-briefing.
A big thank you too to all the marshalls, supporters, helpers and runners – far too many to name each one, but thank you all.

With 100 days to go until the opening of the 2012 Olympic Games, HRC is getting ready by giving people the chance to get involved at a Try Athletics event.
The Club is an official England Athletics affiliated one and is hosting the event on Tuesday 17th April from 6.15pm at its new home, Ashby Road Sports Club. Adults and children of all ages and abilities are welcome to go along and try a taster session.
Alex Copeland, national club development officer for England Athletics, said “Clubs such as HRC give people a great opportunity to get involved in the sport. People may not go on to be involved in the Olympic or Paralympic Games but the excitement and enjoyment they can get is every bit as great”.
100 Days To Go event
Just for fun!
Welcome to the new HRC website! It’s not just our site that’s new though – our home has moved, to Ashby Road Sports Ground.
All training sessions will now start from Ashby Road (Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6.15). There’s ample parking, as well as changing and toilet facilities.
To celebrate our move, we’ll be having cake this week!
