Welcome to the Hook Fun Run and Road Races Official Blog!

So, we are nearly chronologically equidistant from the extravaganza that was the 2016 event and the hopefully even better 2017 version. This year was of course our 25th year. There were a record number of finishers, 1,192 to be exact. There was a new 10K distance, the amazing Charlotte Purdue ran with us. We had not one but two Zippies, a 10K team named the Hapless Hookers and Dennis, aged 80, took the Mary Dearlove Trophy for the oldest runner. Clubs joined us from all around our little town including Hart Road Runners, Basingstoke and Northants AC and Chineham Park RC.

2016 Results

Well done everybody! 15th May 2016 marked our 25th event with a new record with over 1,100 runners crossing the finishing line at our new home at Hartletts Park. It was a perfect day for running, the atmosphere was buzzing and everyone was smiling!

The Mary Dearlove trophy for the oldest competitor to cross the finish line in any event was awarded to Dennis Devey from Farnborough who ran 10k. Well done Dennis!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank William Grant & Sons, our lead sponsor again in 2016. Thanks for helping make our day such a success and well done to your team running in the 10 miles event.
