Championship Race at Headington 5 Mile race

  • Posted on: 28 August 2016
  • By: Didcot Runners

A great turn out for the Didcot Runners and another club came up to us to thank us for our own race, "we love your 5 mile race, its the best".

It started with a drizzly morning, but that soon cleared up for the run itself, which was a shame. A brief briefing and the gun was fired, a few long straights and then we were on our way home. A couple of club runners running a PB and some chasing other competitors and pacing them around the course. Well done to everyone that showed up and ran and also the supporters that cheered us on. A lovely meal post race at The Fishes, North Hinkey for refuelling and  some social chats about Pigeon Street and the Joy of Painting.

Happy Bank Holiday Weekend and good luck with the Harwell Half Marathon to all our runners participating tomorrow.

Ridgeway Challenge- 86 miles

From Lewis Cousins: A HUGE thank you to everyone that helped out at Goring and Bury Down tonight. It was another successful event expertly handled by Didcot Runners (and friends).  We certainly couldn't do this without your support and it's greatly appreciated. Time to catch some zzzz's!

From Andrew Casey Checkpoint 5 (Half way) of the 86 mile Ridgeway Challenge. A fantastic effort to even sign up to let alone get to this point and beyond. Supplying care, attention and rice pudding, the Didcot Runners and Compton Harrier did superbly. At that point in a challenge, a simple bowl of hot food and a tea is the best thing in the world. Well done everyone and especially Ben, Dan and all the other competitors for taking part.
