16th April – Hoppit: Go Fa(r)ther Trophy
The Hampshire Hoppit is on the same day as Fathers Day, so we have created a special trophy for the best father/child combined score. We call it the Go Fa(r)ther Trophy.
So, if you are a Dad that has a son or daughter that might like to run in the same race as you (if over 18); or a son or daughter (over 18) with a Dad that might be tempted to run the same race; then it might be worth twisting their arm!
I’ve just looked at the entries, and, so far (with just over 8 weeks to go), we have 4 competing families in the marathon, and 6 in the half marathon. So – possibly – you have a very good chance to win!
5th April – Hoppit: Commemorative Glasses
27th October – Up and Running: Competition Results
You might recall that we had a competition to encourage early entry for the Hampshire Hoppit. Our sponsors Up & Running kindly donated 4 x Sub 4 technical T-Shirts for 2 x Ladies and 2 x Men that entered prior to October 4th.
I’m delighted to announce that the winners are Jeffrey Ingold, Gary Wright, Cally Morris, and Kathryn York. They have been randomly selected from the Hoppit 2018 entry list, using a Google random number generator.”
