Results for the Haytor Heller 10k – 16.7.16
This is a tough off-road event, sold as “not for the faint hearted or inexperienced runner”! This race started below Haytor Rock and followed a hilly, single lap route before returning once again to Haytor Rock with a fast downhill scamper to the finish opposite the car park at Haytor. The course was approximately 6 miles and was challenging, with several steep ascents and descents and is generally run across rugged, open moorland, apart from two sections through woodland.

Results for the Rugby Half Marathon – 17.7.16
This race had a slight route change from 2015, although accordingly to Dave they added another zig-zag loop in the villages which meant crossing the M45 more times and adding more hills !! although the free beer at the end was a welcome addition. Again another hot day for the 5 Massey Runners taking part.
Results for the Big Leicester 10K – 17.7.16
This 10k around Abbey Park seemed very complicated on the map, but once running it was a lovely route inside and outside the park, it felt like a longer parkrun. The course was extremely flat (25ft elevation), and if it hadn’t been so warm definitely a PB course. 9 Massey Runners flew the Massey’s flag, with a great PB for Scott.
Results for the Great Newham London Run 10K – 17.7.16
The Great Newham London Run took runners through Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, starting from the ArcelorMittal Orbit the 10k course made its way past the Aquatic Centre before looping back round the stadium towards the Copper Box Arena. At 7k runners crossed over the River Lea towards the Lee Valley Velo Park and then back into the stadium. A really hot day but well done to the 7 Massey Runners that took part.
