OVERTON 5   3rd September 2017
Some of the Victory AC  Team at Overton 5 : September 2017
Ladies team  Rachel Jarvis

The first Hampshire league Road race of the season, the Overton 5 mile on Sunday 3rd September.

An excellent turnout of 11 ladies representing Victory on a drizzly day, light rain so not bad conditions really.

An undulating course around Scenic Overton with lots of support from the local residents and friendly marshals.

First Victory lady in was Hannah Lowry and second was Linda Pukinska who ran her first road league race both with excellent times and also well done for some good running from Lucy Cowlin, Lesley Allen, Rachel Jarvis, Bridget Main, Debbie Clarke, Sara Heath, Dee Sims, Hazel Jenkinson and Mary Short.

Mens team  Terry Healy

This was my first time at this event, mainly due to the difficulties around the 2pm starting time, and I thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Run mainly on closed roads, the out and back race was well organised and chip timed with some 'interesting' hills adding to the challenge.
We had eight men competing, just enough for an A and B team result, phew!

A great result in the first HRRL event, now onto race two, the Solent Half on September 24th.
It would be great to see as many Victory AC men at these very friendly and inclusive events. If you haven't run one before, do give one a go - details of races and links to entry are at the top of this page!

SOLENT HALF MARATHON   24th September 2017

Ladies team  Helen Boiling

So, the second HRRL race of the season was already upon us. The weather was set fair, and during the event it was a mixture of sun and cloud. The temperature was fairly warm but, not bad running conditions.
I was very pleased that we had 6 ladies, so complete A and B teams.

This is a lovely course, along mainly country roads with light traffic. There were definitely some undulations; the last mile or so a gradual ascent!
There are a couple of sections with scenic sea views.

Chris led the A team home with Belinda and Helen, with Katie, Lisa and Bridget completing team B.
I think it’s fair to say we all found it fairly hard work and were pleased to finish!

The marshals were encouraging and it was a very well organised event once again by Hardley Runners.

We were pleased to receive a technical running vest for our efforts! Thank you ladies for running in one of the two half marathons within the Road League
