Barrow 6 ( LRRL Winter Series )
On Sunday 13th January 17 Harborough members attended the Barrow 6 at Humphrey Perkins School at Barrow-upon-Soar. This was an great turn out for the first of the LRRL Winter League races of 11 men and 6 ladies of which 6 were first time runners in this series. On the day there were 523 runners (356 men / 167 ladies) who completed the course. The course is an undulating one with a nice hill at the end to finish up. The weather made it a hard finish with having to run the last 2 miles straight into a strong wind. Our first male runner home was Tom Duck in 36.32 and the first lady home was Karen Brooks in 42.26 (4th V45). In the menís race Jason Pitcher was 2nd home for Harborough followed by Kyle Barber. Tom Duck, Jason Pitcher, David Waddington, Adam Brooks and Mark Garrod were competing in their first LRRL race. In the ladies race Ruth Bingham was 2nd home for Harborough followed by Lin Farrow. Well done to ZoŽ Garrod in her first LRRL Race. I hope you all enjoyed it. A thank you goes to Lin Farrow for organising so many ladies to run on the day. I hope to see you all running again at the next race which is the Markfield 10K Sunday 27th January, and anyone else who wishes to run are more than welcome Ė the more the better whatever standard you are.
