Your involvement makes a massive difference to HERC. Not only does it allow the club to host a cross country race and therefore continue to participate in the RR10 league, it also enhances the club's reputation in the local running community.
The positive, supportive attitude of the marshals received many complimentary comments from last night's competitors. You're all a great credit to the club!
It may seem a lot of effort for a brief moment, particularly in the early stages when everyone's bunched up together, however a marshal in position could be the difference between runners following the correct route or not.Thanks also to those marshals in the later stages that stayed in position until all the runners had been safely seen through.
There were 200 men and 159 women that finished the race.The men's race was won by Nick Buis of Totton and the ladies race by Ellie Monks of Southampton.
