VR Results for the weekend 22-25 May 2020

(May 26, 2020)

Yet again over 40 Harriers turned out to take on 2 challenging 10k courses - one each in the Haywards Heath - Lindfield area and one in Burgess Hill.  The Lindfield course included a partial climb of Mt Oathall in the final km  - but this didn't put you off!

We are planning a rerun of the 5k races 5th-7th June and then something different after that....Watch this space, Whatsapp, and email..but keep training!


  • 42 Courses run by Harriers in the "Window"; 2 guests also ran and are not listed
  • 1 dedicated Harrier completed both 10ks as part of a single run!!  Some Harriers had multiple efforts reflecting the importance of learning the route when no markings/marshalls
