Hilly 100 Results 2016

Run report by Len Quartly

Bromsgrove & Redditch Athletic Club (B&RAC) entered three teams of ten runners in the recent annual Cotswold Hilly 100 Mile Road Relay Charity Race.

The race organised by Stratford upon Avon Athletic Club. Each runner in a team completed a 10 mile stage, and as the race title suggests,  the course is ‘hilly’ but in reality it has many very severe climbs. Starting in Stratford, runners then raced on country roads through the evocative villages and towns such as Chipping Campden; Snowshill; Chedworth; Bibury; Bourton on the Water; the Slaughters; the Swells; and Moreton in the Marsh, before returning to Stratford.

The twelve Clubs who took part entered a total of 25 teams and they enjoyed some excellent racing conditions. It is not surprising that the race starts at 5:00am to ensure potentially slower teams finish at a reasonable evening time. The Club’s ‘B‘ and ‘C’ teams for instance started with the dawn chorus to complete the race in 12hrs 45mins and 14hrs 57 mins respectively. The Club’s ‘A’ team however of seven men and three ladies started at the more reasonable hour of 6:00am and finished a very creditable second place of the ‘mixed’ teams in a time of 11hrs 50mins only 20 minutes behind Bourton Road Runners ‘A’ team. Each member of the ‘A’ team ran well with the men averaging 65mins to complete their stage while the ladies averaged 82 mins The men’s race was won in 10hrs 18mins by Kenilworth’s ‘A’ men’s team.

Team managers Joanne Hounsell-Hardy and Ian Nutter were pleased with the results and the commitment and support from all who ran for the Club and even ran a stage themselves in good times on what was for them a very long and busy day.
