SL Race 3 - NRRL Race 1 Hexgreave park (Notts Road League)

Postby Woolly » Tue Apr 04, 2017 4:17 pm

This is a free race to affiliated club members in club colours and is part of the Notts AAA'S road race summer league races.
(Long eaton vest or top - Jane Hudson kit lady if require)

Located at Hexgreave Park, near Bilsthorpe, off A617 between Mansfield and Newark.
A bit of a hike, especially after Teversal the previous week. Suggest car sharing options for members if possible - T''other side of Notts!

The start and car parking is at Hexgreave Hall, NG22 8LS. The race starts at 7.15pm. 5.1 miles. Minor roads, disused railway line (Southwell trail), some dirt trail and short grass.
Give plenty of time to cross Nottingham traffic!

Can members please shout if happy to car share from west park.

For new members this booths league and the notts road league are free races for club members, whereby you can race, test yourself against other club runners from around the local area.
Great events to add into your training over different routes, all timed and recorded.
It is also great if we can get teams together to compete against other clubs, everyone that runs counts towards points for the club and an overall position.
It's usually 6/7 men's team and 3 for ladies team but sure Rob Fox can correct me if I'm wrong. There are also individual age categories across the whole race series as well as team placings.
These events are all in the evening and hosted by different clubs across the local area.

5 men & 3 women per senior teams in this league. 4 men & 3 women for vets teams. A & B teams counted if enough, and all in same age bands.

The start age for women's vets is 35, & 40 for men. You can only count in one team per race, ie, not as a senior and a vet at the same time. But an individual can be a senior in one race, and count as a vet in the next. Individually, they will always be counted in their age category.

Car-sharing is strongly urged for this race. The grounds are private, and the owners have provided toilets for general use. Please only use these facilities, whilst at the venue.

A slight correction to the last post. The senior men's team score is 6 to count, not 5 (5 is North Mids XC league).

This season, in a revertion to a previous policy, and by popular demand, the first 4 male vets to finish will make up the vets team. That could mean a weaker senior team score, but it's up to the genuine seniors, ie, under 40 on 19th April, to turn out and run. There are enough of you to achieve 5 comptitive team scores without having to rely on us old men any more!

A similar policy will be in place for the women's team.

I was on the fence over this. It was Ash who played "hardball". Also, to stop Alan moaning!

After an adjustment by the results league team (possibly since results above were issued), the senior men's team finished in a magnificent 2nd place. The women's team was an equally magnificent 3rd team place, with the men's vet's in 6th.

The next race is at Holme Pierrepont on 10 May, where we will look to match these achievements, if not improve upon them.
