The Longhorn - 22nd April

David Bannister wrote a few words about The Longhorn:


Whist everyone else was having fun at the London Marathon (not jealous at all!), David, Rachel and Claire headed in completely the opposite direction to a race in Nottinghamshire! The Longhorn is held at the Thorseby Hall private estate and includes a 10k, Half Marathon, Marathon and Ultra (60k). Each race is run on a 10k loop of the estate, taking in paths and ancient forest trails. It's a beautiful setting, but everyone massively underestimated the heat of the day and the toughness of the course! David (somehow) managed to finish 6th, and was first in age category (after a slight initial technical hitch which saw Rachel finish as first lady!! we might have for the bibs the wrong way round...)

Walton 10k - 15th April

Bethan was good enought p rpvide some thoughts on 


This is a delightful cross country race at Walton Hall.  The course was gorgeous – muddy, hilly, slippy and beautiful.

We were started off by a chap yelling ‘1,2,3 GO!!!!’ through a loud-hailer.  There was no chip timing, no fancy race start and finish lines and we got flapjacks and cake instead of medals.

Seven Harriers ran and some walked too.  Only the results of top 100 runners were published and this included all the Harriers!


7th place – Martyn Banham – 44.55

22nd place – Simon Preston – 49.35

37th place – Anwen Greenaway – 53.48

40th place – Vince Blake – 54.01

53rd place – Suzie Field – 58.24

59th place – Bethan Greenaway – 59.54

73rd place – Jane Fletcher – 63.06

92nd place – Lisa Preston – 69.44


Regency 10k - 15th April

Three Harriers took on this 10k in Leamington, some thoughts from David:


Claire, Rach and I had a go at the Regency 10k in Leamington this morning. A massive 2000+ runners took part, a huge record for the race (I think something like double last year!). It was tough going around the golf course and very twisty in town but 3 good times were posted. Rach was running with her friend Jemima who was taking on her first ever 10k! T’was all good fun! :-)

Warwick Half Marathon - 8th April

Three Harriers took on this local Half marathon, some thoughts from David:


It was a slightly better organised BHF event this year! No PBs for the three Harriers who took part, but all good times and not far off PB pace for each of us. The course is a bit tougher than you might think with plenty of undulations to keep you on your toes!!

1:32:00  Royston Williams

2:06:29  Rachel Bannister
