The weekend of 27 & 28 October saw the 40th time this event, now the Original Mountain Marathon (formerly the KIMM), has been run. A group of SROC stalwarts ventured north to the Lowther hills and braved some mixed weather conditions on this arduous two-day event. Some fine performances were recorded and we must congratulate Sean Bolland running with his brother Brendan who were 1st on the Elite course, and Quentin Harding, paired with his brother Kevin, who finished 9th overall and 1st Veterans also on the Elite course. Sue Harding and partner Kate Ludley were 1st females on the C course while Karen Nash and Rowena Browne were the highest placed all-SROC pair, coming 32nd overall on the A course and 1st Female Veterans. Full results may be viewed here and a race report is on the Sleepmonsters website.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League points for event 1

Individual unadjusted and age adjusted points for the first Street League event have been added to the results index. Points are calculated by comparing raw points per hour scores with the highest scorer on the night, who is given 100 league points. The age adjusted score takes into account the expected relative speeds based on age, and hence allows fairer comparisons between runners of different ages.

Despite some brilliant individual performances a depleted SROC junior team unfortunately failed to qualify for the YBT final at the Borderliners event on Sunday. WCOC and LOC were the successful clubs. Let's hope for a closer venue and a stronger turnout from the team for next year. Results may be viewed here.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Gym training sessions start Wednesday 10 October

Now the nights are getting darker, our gym sessions are starting again - the first being this Wednesday 10th October, as usual at Broughton High School (just off the A6 at Broughton crossroads, north of the A6/M55 junction). Note we are in the gym there, not the sports hall. Sessions start at 7.00pm, and finish about 8.30pm when we go to the pub. They are a mixture of stretching, jogging, circuit training and practice map reading exercises, finishing with a game of basketball (well, it bears a resemblance). All activities are of course optional and can be done at your own pace. This week we hope to kick off with a bleep test (if you don't know what that is come along and find out!). A good chance for children to test their parents. See you there!
