The last RR10 - IBM Hursley - Weds 16 August 2017

A good course, runners of all abilities, friendly marshals and it is all free.  What's not to like!  Give it a go!  Remember this one starts earlier than usual at 7.15.

The Hangman Ultra - Longparish - Saturday 19 August 2017

Are you looking for a gentle introduction to ultra-running or a fast race.  This one offers both.  Starting at Longparish Village Hall, the race goes up the Test Way to Inkpen and back down the same route. It is well signed and supported and there is a generous time limit. 

A fabulous 54km race through beautiful Hampshire countryside. Entries now open:

The Beast - Corfe - Sunday 3 September 2017

This is a lovely race and has been very popular with Hardley members in previous years with up to a dozen making the trip to Dorset.  There are smashing views, challenging steps and lovely tee-shirts for all.  And if that is not enough then the Square and Compass in Worth Matravers is just a short distance away.  The only drawback is that it clashes with the Overton 5.

You can see some pictures taken by our webmaster here and see a video which gives you the course in 10 minutes here (scroll down).  Get your entry in 'cos it always sells out.

RR10 Series

RR10s are by far the most popular events with our members.  The RR10 league is a series of races organised by running clubs in south-west Hampshire for their members. The races are held on Wednesday evenings during the spring and summer.  Entry is free. All of the races are 4-5 miles off-road. The standard of runners varies from 5-minute milers to 12+ minute milers so, however fast you are, there will always be someone to compete with or just enjoy a run together if that's what you prefer. The only requirement is to wear a Hardley vest on the night and there are usually some for sale at the race for £12, so please do give the series a try. There is usually a lift share from the Applemore car park. 

The league has become very popular with record numbers attending so for the 2016 season onwards there are some minor changes in hand to accommodate more people.  There will be 11 races with each club dropping out on one so each club will take part in 10 races including one as organiser as at present. 

Every runner will still have nine races to compete in, of which their best six will count for the league position, as in previous years.

Please do not attend our drop out race as a spectator!

The dates for the 2017 season are below.

Cross Country

There are two main series of events where we field teams - the CC6s and the Hampshire League - see below.  In addition we field teams at the Southern Championships and the Nationals.  If you'd like to enter either of these events (runners of all standards welcome - you don't have to be fast to enjoy the experience) please contact our Cross Country Captain Ian Banks.  There will be lift shares from Applemore for the Hampshire League and a free minibus for the Southerns and the Nationals.  Please contact Ian Banks (see contact us page) to find out more.


CC6 Captain, Simon Ibbotson, writes, "The CC6s are now a series of 8 races held over the winter period on cross country courses (lots of lovely mud :-) ). Each course is between 4 and 5 miles (most around 4.5 miles) and is hosted by one or more clubs so that everyone is able to run 7 out of the 8 races. They are free for club members and the only requirement is that you run in club colours, please contact me if you need a Hardley Vest or T-Shirt.

I will email you leading up to each event with more information on courses, conditions, etc.  I will also be emailing to ask for your help with the marshaling and setting up of our own race at Dibden Inclosure on 6th November.   The CC6s are always great fun and I will hopefully see many of you there. Please note that as parking can be very limited at these venues I would like to request that you try to car share wherever possible, thank you."

You can find out more about these races by visiting the CC6 website (see links page).  The 2016/17 fixture list is below. All races start at 9.30am.

FFFK Series at Boscombe

Fast, Flat, Five Kilometres fortnightly on Fridays, this is a good run to get a fast 5km time. Or if you’re just starting on your running journey you can avoid those pesky hills and get carried along by the other runners

The course is ‘out and back’ from Boscombe Pier towards Southbourne whichis is closed to vehicles keeping you a little safer during the race.

You can stroll, jog, run or sprint, it’s your gig. However, once you receive your finishing time you’ll find it addictive to ‘chip away’ at it fortnightly. You won’t always feel up to aiming for a PB so take it as a fun run with friends and family.

The 2017 season dates are


Race 1


Race 2


Race 3


Race 4


Race 5


Race 6


Race 7


Race 8


Lap of honour. This will be our final race of the series at Boscombe. We will have a few treats up our sleeves…

 Entries cost £4.  Details are here

You can read more about the events and register here.
