RSE Club Report – The Most Run-derful Time of the Year!

Hullavington Secret Santa 10 Mile Race

Held around the picturesque village of Hullavington, the Secret Santa run was the last race in RSE’s 2021 club championship – what better way to end than with a race that promises cake to finishers! The course was all on road and is listed as ‘gently’ undulating around the quiet country lanes. It was a fantastic turnout of club members, all braving the cold for a festive run.

[I] really enjoyed it, one of those days when I managed to have good energy and kept the pace. Not the easiest course, lots of ups and downs but so, so pleased to have hit that time. A really positive RSE day, great to have the support of other team members. 🏃🏻‍♂️🔥

Alan Powderhill

It was foggy, cold and quite hilly but nice medal and even nicer cake!!

Sarah Page

The last race of the year for 2021 and a new 10 mile race distance PB (by 7 mins!) to finish the year off! 🤩 An extremely undulating route in the fog & mist which gave it an even more wintery feel 🥶

Elliot Gardiner

I first ran the secret Santa in 2019 but I don’t remember it being that hilly back then.
As with all Stampede events the race was well organised, very friendly and of course had the ever present slice of cake at the finish.
For anyone running future races in Hullavington I can strongly recommend the Sunday roast from the Hullavinton Arms 😋😋

Kevin Joynes-Creed

Incredible running everyone!

Safety Notice

A Message from Caroline Terry, Club Welfare Officer:

Firstly, thank you to club members who are wearing hi-visual running gear including body or head torches on club nights. (any time you run in the dark!)

Please can I remind you that light coloured tops and jackets are not so good at reflecting light. So please get yourself kitted out with something that helps you see where you are going and others can see you. (the pavements & roads are not so smooth… )

It is so important to run safely. It also sends a message to the general public and upholds our good reputation of being respectful to others who use the pavements and roads. (see RSE constitution).

Thank you and keep safe.

If you would like a run or race included in the club report, don’t forget to message Ellie Taylor by 5pm Sunday each week 🙂
