Severn AC run two Road Race Series over the summer. The Lloyds Bank Fitness Run which has a time limit of 24 minutes any faster and you are not supposed to enter. Sadly a few ringers do enter, generally it is an event made up by the more happy go lucky club athletes  and fitness runners. A nice event, covering four miles starting and finishing at the Pilot  Inn Hardwicke; so a post race drinks is also a bonus. It is a five event series and starts this year on the 2nd of May at 7.30 and then continues on the first Thursday of each month thru til September. A great event if you want to have fun; or a great event for some lactic threshold training if you are just over 6 minute mile pace.

 

The 5K Series is held up at the White Horse Sandhurst, and is whilst attracting a cross section of club runners has a substantial number of very swift bean poles racing.  It is a quick 5K course (some issues in the past re measurement!) with a couple of minor rises on it. A real must for any one trying to improve speed and or 10K times. The first race in the series  is on the 21st of May at 7.45 and then every third Thursday of the month thru til August.

 

Four Peaks Fall

2014

A large contingent made it out to the four peaks in the clubs end of season off road extravaganza, even group 5 headed off  for the hills though last seen Roger was in his car! Group 4 led by Haydn relaxing in advance of his Ultra this weekend took it steady and got every one up to the top of the peak and back home.
