Hedge End Running Club members have really caught Half Marathon fever and we would like to recognise this by using the Southampton Half Marathon to hold a special Club Championship. Prize details will be announced soon.
This could evolve into a series of events throughout the year as the club develops... for example a longer race in the Spring (maybe Half Marathon or 10 mile race), another race in the Autumn (maybe a 10K or a 5-mile). and then maybe an off-road or cross-country race in the Winter.
Clearly, for any race that's selected for a club championship, there will be some members that won't able to participate, however we hope that by having a number of races throughout the year at different distances and disciplines, we hope we can at least satisfy the majority of members.
There are only a limited number of places left for the Southampton Half Marathon, however we are working with the race organisers to ensure that Hedge End Running Club members can enter the race right up to the cut off date of the 15th of March - regardless of the race selling out before then. Please don't leave it till the last minute though - if any member still hasn't entered and would like to run in the race, enter as soon as possible using the discount code "hedgeend" to get 15% off the current entry price of £33.99, reducing the entry cost to £28.89.
For anyone that can't make the Southampton Half, there will definitely be another Club Championship race later in 2015.
