Time Trials

The club holds Time Trials every other month throughout the year.

During April to September these are held on a Thursday evening using the 4mile loop based at Eric Road in Stubbington. 

From October to February the Time Trials are held on a Tuesday evening using the 3.5 mile course from Holly Hill leisure centre car park.

Adding fun to these trials, we will be looking to highlight time improvements runners achieve each time. The men and women who improve the most off their time trial results compared to their previous best from last year, (or from this year if they did not record a time last year), will receive recognition and a small prize. 

Summer Time Trial Course

We start at Eric Road by the Shell Garage. We have tried to avoid as many clashes with the RR10’s races, Lakeside and Gosport 5k series.

There are two start times, to get everyone to finish about the same time. So people looking to run 4 miles in over 35 minutes start at 6.45pm at Eric Road. For people under 35 minutes, we start at 7.00pm. As people progress with their times below 35 minutes they will move up to the 7pm start time, which will in turn help runners to improve their times, so a great win win.

A map of the course is posted here.

Dates for the 2018 Summer Time Trials are:

TBD in April 2018

Winter Time Trial Course

We meet at the Holly Hill leisure centre car park, which can get quite full so if there are no spaces please use the Holly Hill Woodland car park across the road.  The 3.5mile route starts on the tarmac path at the back of the carpark and follows this to the right and on around the perimeter of the open ground until it meets Montefiore Drive, where you start a loop. You go left up Montefiore until you meet the A27 turning right on the pavement and carry on to the roundabout at Brook Lane where you go right.  You bare right at the next roundabout keeping on Brook Lane then take the next right which takes you along to the start of the loop. You carry out the loop up Montefiore Drive once more before returning along the tarmac path to the start/finish point.

Runners will be set off in a single start after a mandatory safety briefing at 7pm.

A map of the course is posted here.

(The route is well lit but there are a number of safety points which will be briefed on the night at 7pm before the start)
