Newsletter - September 2014

This is the nineth of a regular ‘monthly’ newsletter published to club members providing summary key updates.  For further information go to the club website at the club website 

August Member of the Month

Richard Allen is the August member of the month. One of the most popular club members who not only was he the first person to complete the Pentathlon, he was probably the only person to have completed it twice.  In addition, he has completed 4 marathon in 11 months, ran for the club in just about all of the SXCL, RR10 and HRRL races over the last few months.  Smashed his 5K and 10K PB's in one weekend and a small matter of doing all of the admin for the club memberships.  Well done Rich.

New HERC Tri Club

We have established HERC Triathlon, to “run” along side Hedge End Running Club to provide the same “Hedgie” support and spirit for, Swimming, Cycling and Triathlon.

Find out what it is all about here:  HERC Triathalon

To join, until 31st March 2015 you need to email membership@hedgeendrunningclub.com and pay a £10 to the club bank account, as per normal membership fees.

Gosport Half Marathon

If you are thinking about running the fast and flat Gosport Half you should be looking to enter soon as the race is looking very popular.

Stubbington 10K

Another reminder for a race which sells out early and is always popular with Hedgies is the Stubbington Green 10K

Club Kit

Remember you can order your club kit on the website, including the latest addition of Pinless event clips and a couple of running books.  Kit Page


Southern Cross Country League

The Southern XC League is run on a similar format to the RR10’s which took place through the summer, including free entry for members, obviously with a bit more mud in the offing.  


The races are on Sunday mornings at 11:00am throughout the winter.  The first race is at Pamber Forest on the 12th October.

Hedge End Running Club Celebration Evening

On Saturday 11th October we will be holding our first Celebration Evening at Botley Market Hall, from 7.30pm.

This will be a chance to socialise with others from the club and celebrate some of the successes the club has had over the past year.

We will also be holding a raffle for The Rainbow Centre on the evening - we have some prizes already, but more are welcomed. Please contact Ali Morant if you are able to help with this.

If you are a new member it will be a great opportunity to learn more about the club and meet more running friends!

Tickets will be on sale at the beginning of September.
