RR10 LEAGUE







The RR10 league is a series of races organised by running clubs in south-west Hampshire for their members. The races are held on Wednesday evenings during the spring and summer. Entry is free. All of the races are 4-5 miles off-road. The standard of runners varies from 5-minute milers to 12+ minute milers so, however fast you are, there will always be someone to run with. If you aren't a member of one of the organising clubs, go to one of their websites (links below) and join up so that you can be part of the fun!

HISTORY OF THE RR10 LEAGUE - AND SOME THOUGHTS ON THE FUTURE

Malcolm Price has written a short history of the league, and added some thoughts on the future.

RACE 11 - 15TH AUGUST - 7.15PM - IBM HURSLEY

Results now available. What a turnout! We set a new record for the total number of finishers, with 507 taking us over 500 for the first time ever. There was also a record number of men, with 301 being over 300 for the first time ever.

LEAGUE TITLE WINNERS
Many congratulations to those listed below. Nick Buis's run of six consecutive victories in the men's league was ended by Matt Hammerton (Romsey), with Romsey being the biggest improvers this year, taking the men's team prize for the first time, and also claiming the first three places in the men's individual league.
Special mention for the ladies should go to a dominant Winchester team, but also to Stubbington, who nearly made a clean sweep of the individual titles. Rebecca Lord of Stubbington also headed the ranking table for the third time.

RACE COUNT TABLE
Table showing the number of RR10s everyone has run from 1995 onwards. Let me know if there are any duplicates/mistakes. [webmaster@rr10.org.uk - Alan Tulip]
Vet categories of V40, V50 and so on are included for clubs which have provided the data. A runner's category is fixed for the season based on their age on the date of the first race.
Personal music players with earphones are not allowed during RR10 races. It is very important that marshalls' instructions can be heard at all times, and some runners have complained about being blocked on narrow parts of a course by runners unaware that someone was coming up behind them.

AGE LIMITS
In order to be covered by UK Athletics public liability insurance and to gain a UKA permit for each race, we have to conform to the rules laid down by UKA. Rules 507 and 508 specify that only Under-17s and older can run in Cross Country races of the normal RR10 distance (up to 8K). This means that all men and women competing must have been at least 15 on August 31st of the year prior to the series (so 31 August 2004 for the 2005 series). Note that the age limits for men and women are now the same.
EXCEPTION - With the agreement of all the clubs, the following modification to the restriction above has been agreed:
Members of the participating clubs who are aged 15 on the day of the race, but were not 15 on 31 August of the previous year, may also run in RR10 league races, but only with the explicit permission of their clubs or coaches.

CLUB MEMBERS ONLY
RR10 races are for members of the participating clubs only. Again for insurance reasons, we have to insist on this. It is also unfair that non-members should turn up and run a race for free that is being organised by these clubs. Some clubs are in favour of not giving finishing position tickets to runners not wearing club vests. This will not be enforced, but we do very strongly urge all runners to run in their club vests.

Please send any comments/corrections to Alan Tulip at webmaster@rr10.org.uk. I am still interested in any results from years prior to 1995 that I can add to this page, even if only the title winners for that year.
