The HBT5 will be held on Saturday 27th April this year. For those of you that haven’t run it before, it is a “lovely undulating, picturesque course over woodland and farmland”.
Those of you that have runit before will know that I am lying and that it is an evil pig of a course with a sting in its curly tail!
However, I am sure you will agree that the homemade cakes and bacon butties make the slog up Hurstbourne Hill all the more worthwhile.
This year all net proceeds will go to the HBT Development Trust and Andover Young Carers. We would love to see as many Harriers as possible turning out again! Entry forms are on the board. Please hand your completed form along with your hard-earned dosh to Greg.
As usual, there will be T-shirts for all finishers and prizes for SM, SW and vets. We also have prizes for King and Queen of the hill. Sean is our reigning King of the Hill, so we’ll be looking to him to retain his crown. Fastest male Harrier over the course is Lee in 31:06 and fastest female is Kerri in 41:27. Perhaps we could see our first sub-30’ finisher this year?
Once again, we will be really grateful for any help on the Friday or Saturday, so if you cannot run, please come along and marshal. Contact Martin or Greg if you can help out. More details at www.hbt.org.uk/Hbt5Race.htm or www.facebook.com/hurstbourne5
