HEREFORDSHIRE  SUMMER  OFF  ROAD  LEAGUE  2017

RACE  4  -  SHOBDON  COURT

WEDNESDAY  26th JULY

The postcode for the race venue is HR6 9LZ , but you are probably better off just using this as a means of getting to Shobdon. There will be Croft Ambrey R.C. signs pointing you to the race HQ when you near the village. If you are approaching from the west your sat nav will try to take you up a drive which is blocked by electronically operated gates.

The conclusion of the race will be followed by a presentation of the individual and team awards for the series. Mike will endeavour to work out the results and details as quickly as possible, so please be patient and hang around to applaud and support your team mates who may have won awards.

XC Summer league – Race 2 High Vinnalls. Wed 28th June - details

WVR-1.jpg

See below all you need to know about this Wednesdays XC race. Meet 6pm at club to share transport. Club vests must be worn. Numbers from Kelly.

 

Herefordshire Off-Road League – Summer Series, 2017 Race 2 High Vinnalls, organised by Ludlow Runners Start time 7.15 pm. Click here for route map. The course is a challenging ‘up and downer’ of just under 5 miles. It features hard and grassy tracks, forest roads, and a short ‘technical’ downhill section through woodland about three quarters of the way round. We worried about you all being tired enough, so it finishes with a steady climb of about a mile. There’s no need to thank us. Directions: The Postcode for Monstay Farm, opposite High Vinnalls car park, is SY8 2HE From the South: Take the first turning to Ludlow from the A49 along the B4361. On arriving at the edge of the town turn left immediately before a set of traffic lights on a closed river bridge (Ludford Bridge). Signposted Burrington/Wigmore. The Charlton Arms is on the corner of this road. From the North: Take the first exit into Ludlow from the A49 (Bromfield Rd B4361). Follow this road into the centre of town at the top of the hill. At the traffic lights continue on the B4361 downhill – the road bears right at the bottom of the hill. At the next set of traffic lights by a stone river bridge (Ludford Bridge) turn left over the bridge and then immediately right just past the Charlton Arms, signposted Burrington/Wigmore. Finding the Start (From both North and South): At the Wigmore Road, travel for 3 miles uphill, passing the Whitcliffe Common and viewpoint on your way. After a sharp downhill section watch out for a sign displaying 'Vinnalls Car Park 200 yards'. Turn right into the farm entrance immediately opposite the Vinnalls car park. We are using the field opposite the Forestry Commission car park for parking so we don’t monopolise the car park itself. The land owners have kindly consented to this, but have requested a donation to the local church. Please therefore be ready to make a £1 donation for parking.

Westhope Cross Country Wednesday 14th June

Our first Summer XC race opens this Wednesday in sunny Westhope courtesy of Couriers.

Paid up club members all welcome - get a number from Kelly in advance. The race starts 7.15 pm prompt. Follow signs from Canon Pyon Village or better still share lifts at Rowing Club at 6pm.. The summer league is a great way to test your fitness on courses of about 5 miles. This one is a bit bumpy - but nothing you can't handle. Paid up members only - and club vests mandatory. 

Cotswold Relay Final Team list

Jan and her advisors have got together and pulled together 3 teams for forthcoming Cotswold Relay. Are you a Wye Valley Boy, A mixture or an  Allsort? Find out here

A few people still haven't coughed up and paid Jan their £10 entry fee. Please do soon soonish or we will send the boys around. If you have any issues with this lot please contect either Jan, Paul or Jeremy . Should be a great weekend

Cotswold Relay Meeting 10th May

Cotswold Relay meeting on Wed 10 May after club run. £10 per runner to be paid at meeting. If you can't make it please send money with someone else. Some have already requested stages and times and any other requests will be considered. We have 3 teams and a few reserves with the names on my list so far which is great and most have done the event before so realise how much commitment and organisation is involved. Look forward to seeing you all at meeting.

Super 10 Races

With the first 2 races of the Super 10 just around the corner with the Hereford 5k 1st Race on Wednesday and Gords 6 on Sunday. It is probablya good time to confirm the races for the series so you can work the into your busy schedule. There will probably be 1 more race added to the list as 19 is an odd number.

The rules for the series are more or less the same. 50 points awarded to the first female and male wye valley runner home with 1 less point awarded to for every subsequent runner. We will total up your 10 best scores at the end of the series.

This year however there will be a slight change. Points will be awarded to Marshal for the 4 Wye Valley Races and there will also be an age handicap worked out as well so everyone has a chance of winning.
