Race 6 – Denny Wood – 21st February – 9:30am

 

Thank you Totton for today’s race.  I was getting my muddy race fix elsewhere, but by all accounts everyone had fun!  Feedback from your results people is as follows:

  • Many thanks to all the marshals today for another great race at Denny’s Wood. Nice conditions for a change !!
  • Thanks to Totton for a great race, and a fine effort with the cake table!
  • Please extend our thanks to Totton RC for a great race. The course was challenging but made more bearable with the constant support from their many marshals.  The rewards too were amazing with the vast array of cakes on offer. Well done Totton.
  • …the fantastic CC6 today!!!
  • The Green Army enjoyed Dennywood today, thank you Totton for hosting
  • A great race this morning. Plenty of mud – just as we like them!!
  • … it was a lovely and convenient race as always with plenty of water hazards and loads of supportive marshals, the cake stall was excellent, and we were able to stumble, in a sugar haze, from the finish our vehicle.

I do have all the results in, but haven’t completed the master table yet, so only this week’s are showing for now.  Will try to finish off tomorrow. Sorry…

Race 5 – Kings Garn Gutter

Thank you Romsey and Halterworth for a ‘charming’ little race on Sunday, hats off to everyone that managed to run all of that last hill!

This is what you had to say about it:

“Thank you for your “encouragement” (you’re welcome Rich!)

Definately the toughest course in the series, needless to say, everyone loved it!

Was really pleased to get back to the shower after that one.  Can’t remember ever carrying around as much mud as I did today and that’s without falling over….

Stoney Cross was the toughest course so far for the series

Just like to thank the marshals for turning out on this drizzly day, hope not too many shoes were lost in the race.

Many thanks to Romsey & Halterworth for great race this morning in the drizzle/mud/hills of Kings Garn Gutter … it’s certainly a tough one!”

Next up is Dennywood on 21st Feb, you’d better get those shoes clean!

Race 4 – Badger Farm

Many thanks to Winchester, Southampton and SR Sisters for today’s race, cakes and sunshine!

Here is the feedback:

“I swear that hill gets longer each year!

Can’t believe we managed to complete the event without getting rained on….

Once again, despite the challenges of the chalky mud, it was a great race with lots of support from the marshals.  Please extend our thanks to Running Sisters, Southampton and Winchester.

Another well organised race again with the weather holding off.”

Our good friend Paul Hammond was present today with his weapon, and you can see the fruits of his labours here .  Thanks Paul!

PS – All results are now on one spreadsheet!

Race 3 – Janesmoor Pond

Thank you Lordshill and Wessex, we were blessed with dry weather, but by the look of you coming in I think it may have been a tad soggy on the course!  Here is the feedback received:

  • We really enjoyed the CC6 today and the extra effort by the marshals was outstanding.
  • Everyone enjoyed the course and the cakes were excellent.
  • Perhaps one of my favourite races, its  a bit like a chocolate with a soft centre, except replace the chocolate for mud.  Nice and technical, and some faster stretches too, I don’t remember so many santa marshals this time compared to previous years and the cake selection was great too.
  • While it was very muddy, this is one of our favourite fixtures and it was great to see so many marshall’s dressed for the festive occasion!  Please extend our thanks to Lordshill & Wessex.
  • Many thanks for a great race today (especially the cakes for us spectators).
  • Great race today – many thanks to you and all the very encouraging marshals for a well organised event.

Thanks for sending the results in so promptly, and (mostly) on the Excel sheets.  Merry Christmas everyone!

Race 2 – Dibden Inclosure

RESULTS NOW COMPLETE!

Remember, please send your club results by 7pm on the Sunday using the Excel template provided. Let me if you need another.

Many thanks to Hardley for putting on a great race, and providing plenty of nourishment!  It was a bit chilly, but we soon warmed up, didn’t we?!  Unfortunately there is one ‘incident’ to report.  Apparently one of our runners had an altercation with a dog walker.  Please don’t swear at dog walkers, they have just as much right to be there as us, just think of them as an extra obstacle to get round.  Don’t waste valuable running energy on getting cross!

Jeremy, from Hardley was on the camera today, and you can see yourself in action HERE.

See you on the 13th December!

cc6 results race 7 Wilverley

What a great way to finish off the season as 146 runners enjoyed nice sunshine, a good hard course, plus tea and cakes to round it off – thank you New Forest and Lymington Tri for your efforts

Todays results are now uploaded – final individual series positions to follow hopefully posted by the middle of the week at the latest

Well done to Mike Gregory from Stubbington and Kath Bailey from Winchester who won todays race and congratulations to Helen Wallington from Totton and James Phillips from Lymington Tri who came first overall in the series

In  todays race the team winners were Lordshill in the mens and Winchester in the ladies – the series winners were Lordshill men, Totton ladies and Lordshill in the combined. My apologies if you saw the earlier version where i had the incorrect series winners shown.

and here’s the feedback received about todays race

Some races have quicksand. Some races have great cake. Surely this is the only one with both!!! Great way to end the series

A great course, how many hills you can possibly fit in, some nice sand and some good mud and water

Please find attached the  results from this morning. 14 of us and we all seemed
to enjoy it, even the quicksand.

What an amazing day for a CC6!!!  Conditions were perfect!!!!!  Thoroughly enjoyed by
all – especially the cake!

Just about recovered from that VERY HARD run, but what beautiful weather!  Couldn’t have been better!

and so the last race of the season with glorious sun shine, cakes galore and even tea (I think a first), this sets the bar rather high for the other clubs next season!  I am pleased to say the quick sand did not claim any of our runners.

Maybe we should set up a cake competition to judge the best hosts for 2015/16?
