Hartshill Heartbreaker 10

This is only just down the road from me! Who do I contact re entering? If I'm not ready for this year's who will be organising it next year. Can they email me?


  • is it on the South downs?????

  • I hope this is in Nuneaton because that where I live and Hartshill has a really nice country park with lots of chipped bark lined paths. However as my partner is quicker than me I don't want to run in parks without a trusted person of the same speed as me.
  • phew

    i think i mean Hartings hill, and you could NOT run up that!
  • its 10 miles through mud puddles and bracken usually a good turnout and run by sphinx ac see you there if you do it i run for hinckley running club , you can enter on the day i think

  • there will be a field of about 250 all standards and loads of marshalls you wont get lonely
  • According to Nuneaton Council's website the Etone sports centre runs a women only running group - might be worth checking out.
  • Helen,
    It is a great race - run indeed by Sphix AC.

    Great club, I used to run for them and hope to return to action for them in the Brum x-country league. Have run the HH!! It is tough but is a great race.
  • Alan,

    not before time either! we need you in the xc

    Sphinx treasurer (not chasing subs!)

    I will keep people posted here with the latest on the Hartshill.
  • Hi all,

    I've looked at some of the clubs on the net and found some too structured. In addition to this I'm at college on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Once the term starts I know I will have a shed load of work to do as it will be the final year and also work full time on a shift patern.

    So maybe a flexible training partner would be a better option. What does everyone think? I don't want to put my running on hold especially as I've only just started again after a 10-12 year break.
  • Hey Helen! You might even see me and my dodgy knee there at the race! Its going through a bad phase at the mo, so any advice I gave you about returning to health ignore!!

    The long distance runs combined with snowboarding isn't really a good combination, evidently!

    Good luck ,just run as and when you can!
  • Dan

    On the whole your advice was top notch. I have the advantage of a semi protective partner who has BANNED me from skiing!!!

    I really don't know if I will be doing the race in November as I', just about to start the final year of a part time HNC course and with the job I've got I have to do 2 lots of shifts per week just so I can finsh early on college days. Doing 10.00-19.00 on Monday, Wednesday & Friday then 07.00-16.00 on Tuesday & Thursday some weeks possibly followed by Saturday morning if I'm rotaed on and fitting in college work is no fun. I hope the results at the end will lead to a better job so I guess it will be worth it.

    Anyway if my running goes to pot there is always next year's Flora Light. Then a longer run after it. My big mouth isn't going to get me in trouble just yet by saying which distance!
