RSE Club Report – Sizzling Hills!

Cirencester Summer Sizzler

Almost guaranteed to be a scorching hot day, the aptly named Summer Sizzler is one tough race. The route follows 2 laps of Cirencester park, but with a slightly different starting area for 2022, the course took runners up Ewe Pens and down the park centre. RSE took over the race, with 36 runners taking on the course!

Bourton Hilly Half Marathon

This one-lap race starts at Greystones Farm in Bourton on the Water before taking runners on a tour of the villages of Clapton and Sherborne. As the name suggests, there are a few inclines along the route… over 850 ft elevation! But with great organisation, picturesque views and the promise of cake at the end, it’s a great event to enter.

We won’t complain about Tinglesfield again!

Sarah Page

A well organised race. An undulating course on a new route – the first hill at mile 2 could easily make or break your race, particularly for those who went too hard on it. The last 5 miles give a good opportunity to come home strong. Well done to all our RSE runners!

Dave Witnall

Checkendon trail 5k

This multi-terrain run features some stunning views along beautiful beech wood tracks. The first half of the race lulls runners into a false sense of security, before a tough final uphill mile. A family friendly event, the Checkendon 5k has a full event village, with food and a bouncy castle for the kids!

A huge well done to Charlie Austin and Edith Putt for completing the event!

Lovely downhill first half, not a lovely uphill second half! I ran with Edith Putt and the event is organised by RSE member Hannah Pivonka. Great little event ☺️

Charlie Austin

Freckleton Half Marathon

Dubbed the oldest half marathon in the UK, the Freckleton Half Marathon took place this weekend in Lancashire. The rural course has often been rated in the top half marathon, despite its undulating route. Runners are taken along a beautiful course which takes in the Fylde Coast.

A huge well done to Katy Miller who completed the course in 2 hours 4 mins.

No PB but a solid effort in the sunshine […] in true RSE spirit, there was a surprise visit from Sarah Reynolds on the start line as she was visiting family in the area.
