Eynsham 10K – Sunday 25th November 2018

James Bolton and Dave Cantwell took 2nd V40 and 3rd V50 honours respectively in both Open and County competitions; with Sue Cantwell, Paula Booth and Susan Haines making up our ladies’ squad. In the final Club Handicap competition race Dave Cantwell and Alan Harrison finished on the same overall points score for the season giving us the first ever tie for 1st whilst the ever consistent James Bolton finished 3rd. Alan ran 14 of the 17 GP races, Dave 13 and James 12. James confirmed victory in the individual Oxon Road Race Grand Prix for the 9th time, an amazing feat. This was another very frustrating day for the Club with just 10 members taking part from the 50+ registered athletes.

OXON XC Round 1 Newbury – Sunday 4th November 2018

12 Harriers (9 men, 2 ladies and 1 marshal) went to Newbury for the first round of the cross-country. The Newbury Showground – devoid of the traditional hellish hills, or sludge to slog through usually found at a XC fixture – still offered the challenge of fields of energy-sapping tufty grass. Early on in the morning there was some concern that we were going to be out numbered by the amount of cakes (6!) vs number of runners. Luckily(?) some more Harriers found their way to the tent as the morning progressed. Neil very kindly offered not to run so that we could fulfil our marshal requirement. It was great to see Susan Haines, Dan M and Hans out for some XC fun for the first time in a while! Our ladies unfortunately missed 1 runner to complete a team and are 10th in Division 1. Our men finished the round 9th in Division 1.

Amsterdam Marathon – Sunday 21st October 2018

Adrian travelled to Amsterdam in search of the elusive sub 4 hour marathon. Despite running very consistent and well under sub4 pace for most of the race, the last few miles took it’s toll. A tightening leg injury and high heart-rate put him in to maintenance/survival mode until the end – sadly just missing out, but nevertheless a huge PB.

Abingdon Marathon – Sunday 21st October 2018

Sophie and Sonnie ran the local marathon. Sophie ran very strong and was the first lady home! Sonnie’s report:

I had been struggling to be fit after picking up a virus during the taper. I desperately tried to convince myself that it was just taper nerves/maranoia.  However I woke up early on Sunday and thought I’d give it a go anyway, hopefully not doing too much damage to myself! The weather was pretty much perfect, very little wind and not too cold. Mike, James and Ralf were very welcome support and faces to see around the course, giving the much needed pick-up. I felt strong up to 15 miles, after that I had an increasing headache, temperature and aches. The pace dropped and the mara-shuffle was in full flow from 21 miles. I’m very pleased to have finished it and given it a go. It wasn’t the time I was hoping for but still a PB. That’ll do pig, that’ll do.

Chicago Marathon – Sunday 7th October 2018

Zoe White went to the (not so) windy city and ran the Chicago Marathon, here is her report:
 ‘Chicago was a fantastic place to run a marathon.  My time was 4.07, so I was a bit disappointed I didn’t get a sub-4 hour, but hey I was in Chicago!  The weather was really muggy and I got soaked, but the overall experience was good and the crowds fantastic.  It was good to have our holiday there too, we did lots from a skyscraper river cruise to watching the Chicago Bull basketball team.  That was a fun experience.  A trip to remember for a long time.  Now no more marathons and holidays for a while.  We’ve got to get on with our house renovations. I’m going to stick to halves for a while!  Chicago was number 7 marathon for me.’

This County Championship event was marginally better attended with Sophie Carter securing 2nd overall female position and 1st LV35 athlete. James Bolton, still on the recovery trail, did well to earn 2nd V40 honours with Dave Cantwell coming home 3nd V50.

Mota-Vation Race 4 Combe II – Thursday 26th July 2018

The heat had threatened the delay of the race with forecasts of 30c. However, cloud cover and a breeze brought the temperature down to a positively chilly 28c and the officials decided the race would start on time. 13 Harriers assembled to race with Carey as lead cyclist and Mike as a tail cyclist. The heat and drag of Bolton’s lane twice took it’s toll on all runners but the Harriers battled on and did the club proud. Thank you to Carey and Mike, supporters who cheered us on, and the members for turning out in very difficult conditions on a tough course.

Bluebell Time-Trial – Thursday 24th May 2018

9 Harriers turned up for the first Bluebell Time-Trial in Pinsley Wood. The recent heavy rain had made the going softer than expected through the woods, which added to the ‘technical’ element of the run. The course was a 1.8 – 2 mile (poor gps coverage in the wood!) lap of the wood, it had lots of twists, turns, trees and roots to navigate. Race founder/organiser/time-keeper/chief clipboard holder Adrian assembled us at the start line and gave us our starting positions. We were given a handicap start time (a delayed start time behind the runner in front of you; worked out according to fastest 10k times) i.e. Paula started the TT first and then 1 minute 35 seconds later Gilly started her race and so on. Dan came home first, followed by Neil, and then Sonnie in third. However.. ‘Honest Dan’ couldn’t take the victory as he confessed that he had taken a wrong turn and had missed a section of the course. The win was awarded to Neil. The handicap times/formula needs tweaking slightly for the next race but the inaugural Bluebell TT was well received by those who took part. The pub afterwards was the perfect end to a new and (hopefully) occurring event.

Report from Mike: On an ideal day for running, with cool air and light rain, the usual suspects, most of whom were suffering from aches, pains and colds, represented the Club with honour.

Oxford Mail XC Race 4 Swindon – Sunday 4th February 2018

After a couple of days of heavy rain it was always going to be a bit soft for round 4 of the XC at Lawns Park in Swindon. The prospect of soft ground and a biting east wind didn’t deter the hardiest of Harriers. 10 men and 3 ladies made the journey and did the club proud. Men Our men set off first on 1 small lap followed by 3 long laps. Instantly you could tell it was going to be a struggle, the first 50 meters going across lumpy, waterlogged marshland. 2 notable climbs, some tight turns and change of directions; and heavy, shin-deep mud made up the rest of the lap. Finally, a proper cross-country challenge. Ladies Sue, Jess and Lucy made our ladies team. A slightly shorter course for the ladies but with the same challenges and added difficulty of those pesky men churning up the mud some more! A huge thank you to those that turned up to represent the club. It was cold, it was tough, it’s a good distance away; and we still managed to run 2 solid teams and score vital points.

Oxford Mail XC Race 3 Adderbury – Sunday 8th January 2018

It was a bright and chilly day at the third race of the series (also incorporating the county champs). The ground started frosty but after a couple of the young’uns races it had become a bit squishy and soft in places. The terrain was a mixture of fields with a steady incline on the lap. Not too difficult by XC standards, but after the indulgence of Christmas it was a wake up. Men 9 men represented the club. James lead us home in 9th place, followed by Jake in 24th, Greg 59th, Dave C 64th, Rob L 86th, Rob W 90th, Sonnie 181st and Adrian in 262nd. (David W DNF with injury). A fantastic effort from everyone. The men finished 3rd team on the day and that leaves us still top of the table in Division 2 overall! Ladies Our ladies team of 3 was Sophie, Jess and Lucy. Sophie leading the way in 3rd,  Jess 3 seconds behind her in 4th! Lucy continued her excellent form finishing 54th and ensuring the team finished 1st on the day and 3rd overall. A brilliant run from our strong ladies team, we need the ladies out in force for the next races at Swindon and Farmoor! *The results are still provisional* Winning time 31:12 (Men) / 25:15 (Women) | Number of finishers: 291/208
