SRC County Runners

I have mentioned in a previous article that you have a great sense of pride wearing your club vest when taking part in events, but that must be felt even more when you represent your county and don the Nottinghamshire green vest. Two of our very own Southwell Runners, Dan Wheat and Sam Hatton (formerly Ward) had the honour of representing Nottinghamshire as part of a team in the recent Intercounties Fell Race. They were selected off the back of their performance at the Wolfs Pit Fell Race earlier in the year. Every year different races are picked to host the event and this year the Flower Scar Fell Race in Todmorden was chosen. Dan and Sam were up against some of the best fell runners in the country and they did themselves and Nottinghamshire proud. The Nottinghamshire mens team had their best ever finish, coming 14th out of 20 teams and the ladies team came 10th out of 10 teams. Not bad for a county that doesn’t have very big hills. There are also so many other things that happened during May, SRC held the first of our in-house club Grand Prix series. 19 members took part and newcomer Adam Carney pushed Steven Rice all the way in a great race. There was also the second of the Summer League races where SRC put in a great performance through our 14 runners. If you are keen to learn how you can also take part, then please go to
