Update on Summer 5K Masterclass and Autumn enrolment

On Thursday night, runners from the Dash for Fitness Summer 5K Masterclass, in association with Hillingdon Athletic Club, took part in HAC’s August 5k Training Race to check on their progress with 4 of the 12 training weeks to go.

Lois, Stuart, and Victoria all beat their pre-Masterclass baseline times, with Helen achieving a new PB (2:55 better than baseline and only 5 secs away from her end of programme goal). In fact, having taken an average of over 3 mins off their baselines, all the runners are now within striking distance of their goals. And it wasn’t just the current Masterclass runners that shone in the race, two of those planning to join our next Masterclass took part and performed amazingly: Karmen WON the women’s race in 20:06 – taking 2 secs off her baseline, and Lisa improved hers by a whopping 54secs.

If you’d like to run a faster 5k, then why not sign up for the Autumn 5k Masterclass taking place on Saturdays 9.00-10.00 (Kings College Track, Ruislip), from 16th September, with 5k Park Runs used every month to track progress. Beginners welcome. You can pay for the 12-week course in 20 monthly installments (works out as 5/week), or for all 12 weeks in advance at a discounted rate of 50. There’s also a pay as you go price of 10/week set deliberately high because the course works best with regular attendance.

Further info and registration by email to dashforfitness@btinternet.com or call 07710 105086.

Gosunder Handicap Race Report 2017

 

BY DAN SPINKS

On a glorious day for barbecuing, around 55 runners plus assorted friends, family, marshals and officials popped over to Mad Bess Woods for the 2017 Gosunder handicap race.

In the junior race the first team home were a pairing more used to jumping and hurdling than distance running- Tariq Arieff and Rhys Feauviour.

Meanwhile over in the senior race the first finisher was Matt Smith whose daughter Mia was running in the relay, however as the rules of the Gosunder dictate that the trophy is won by the first HAC member home, that honour passed to 2nd place finisher and crowd favourite Alan Wells (I’m glad I didn’t give in to his pre race request for a better handicap).

Then it was back to the clubhouse for apres ski, BBQ and some great athletics on the TV. I think it’s safe to say that everyone had a great time as evidenced by the fact that we ran out of both food and beer.

Many, many thanks to everyone who helped make the day run so smoothly. A lot of people contributed in one way or another and it’s very much appreciated.

Gosunder Handicap Trophy – Saturday 12th August

Gosunder Handicap Trophy Race and BBQ 12th August

The traditional Gosunder Handicap Trophy will once again be contested over a 5 mile course in Ruislip Woods on Saturday 12th August. For the first time we will also be incorporating the junior athletes’ training race.
Adults will run two laps of the course, junior athletes will be competing in teams of 2, each running one 2.5 mile lap.

Numbers will be issued at the clubhouse from 3.00pm – 3.40 pm with the first runner starting at 4.00 pm.  Race entry is free for HAC members or £3.00 for non-members.

Afterwards we will be having a BBQ back at the clubhouse and watching the evening session of the world athletics championships including Mo Farah’s final ever track race.

Please enter in advance if possible so that we can work out the handicaps and get an idea of numbers for the BBQ although entries will be available on the day for the less organised of you!

Junior athletes, please let Courtney know if you plan on running.
