Poole Runners are members of the Dorset Road Race League (DRRL)
At the last Dorset Road Race event, the “Hobourne 5”, our ladies team were provisionally first team. Fantastic! The scoring members being Sharon Shaw, Paula Barker, and Joanna Westhead.
This has probably secured Poole Runners winning the ladies overall title in the league. It’s therefore likely, pending verification of results we will be lifting the trophy at the league at the presentations held after the 2019 Broadstone ¼. Well done ladies.
Our men were third DRRL team at the Hobourne 5. The five scoring members being Bill Day, Steve Yeates, Neil Sexton, Paul Currah, and Nat Willmore. This has lifted our men’s team from 4th to 3rd place, but the scoring is still very tight, so it is important we keep up the good work!
In the overall individual standings for ladies Paula Barker is our top female and is currently third overall. Steve Claxton is our highest for male in the league and is currently eleventh overall.
Remember for both teams and individuals it’s the best seven races from any twelve that count. The next DRRL fixture is the Gold Hill 10k on Sunday 14th Oct.
Notes to qualify you must be a paid up member of Poole Runners and registered to England Athletics. For seniors in both the individual and team competitions, the best 7 results will score towards the League.
For Under 17s the best 3 of 4 to count from the selected races. For under 21s the best 6 of 11 to count
