Committee activity

Your committee met on Wednesday 26th September and discussed the usual club finances, membership and forthcoming events as well as Track training, club kit, Gunpowder Trot, challenge trophy results, SGP and West Sussex Fun Run League updates. We agreed to meet again on 7th November. Not sure who your committee are? Well we’ve updated the committee page and personal profiles so why not have a look HERE

The result round up

Some amazing performances over the last six weeks. To read all about it CLICK HERE for the latest race result roundup compiled mainly from press reports by Iain Campbell.

Barns Green team photoIf you are reading this with an early morning cuppa and wondering what time to get to Barns Green today, we will be having a team photo (half and 10k) at the hj gazebo at 9.30am. Just look for the hj flags and all those marvellous maroon hoodies! A staggering 122 hj’s ran in both the half and 10k races last year so it would be great to see the same amount this time.

Goodwood Cross Country Relays

Pete O’Connell is looking to put teams together for this event on Saturday 13th October. For more info CLICK HERE

Gunpowder Trot – 4th November

Margaret Wadman is on course to deliver another fantastic fun run around the beautiful Denne Park and Chesworth Farm with all the key roles now filled. However, she still needs about 20 marshals for the course and more cake bakers! If you can help please use this Survey Monkey link to let her know: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GunpowderTrotForm

Headtorch Runs

These have now started again under the watchful eye of Mike de Frateschi and will continue until April 2019. Venue details are sent out weekly by Mike for those on the mailing list. Alternatively you can find them HERE and also subscribe to the list.

Keep Running 5 to 10k

Sue and Simon have done a superb job of delivering this course for all abilities with the help of a few regular helpers. The new runners recently graduated at the Chestnut Tree House 10k in Littlehampton on 9th September (see result round-up) and most have gone on to become regular hj members running other races and also coming to regular hj sessions on Tuesday and Thursday evening. Congratulation everyone!
