Chichester 10k inc Harvey Curtis Cup, Sunday 4th February

It’s nearly time to kick off our HCC season in which Arena are trying to complete a hat trick of the Harvey Curtis Cup team trophy. We are the reigning champions as well as the 2016 champions and our goal this year is to go for the triple crown.

The first of the HCC races is on Sunday 4th February over in Chichester for the Chi 10k race.

The weather is looking dry, sunny with temp at 3 degrees with a fair breeze to kick in so will be a very cool run.

First Arena man home last year was Al Silvester in 34.17.
First Arena Woman home last was Caroline Hoyte in 36.06.

The next Harvey Curtis Cup road race is the Brighton Phoenix 10k on Wednesday 11th July – 7.30pm. This is an evening event and in the middle of summer and traditionally a very big Arena turn out. If you would like to book this event in to your running calendar then more details here:

We would like to wish all of our athletes taking part the best of luck for tomorrow and let’s hope we can make some sort of impact for this first HCC race.

For information – Taken from the Chichester 10k website:
This is the 27th race in a series of 10k road races promoted annually by the Rotary Club of Chichester Priory.

The Chichester Priory 10k Race at Goodwood is a race over public roads for the first 6.0km finishing with a complete lap of the Goodwood Motor Circuit. The race will start at the entrance to the motor circuit in Claypit Lane, pass the Rolls Royce factory, along historic roman road, Stane Street, through Strettington and back along New Road entering the motor circuit at the main entrance on Claypit Lane and finishing on the Pits straight after a complete lap of the motor circuit. The country roads are undulating and all hard surfaced as is the complete lap of the motor circuit.

The race will be organised on the same basis as in previous years with race headquarters, car parking and facilities all within the motor circuit arena. This is a unique opportunity to race around the Goodwood countryside and the Goodwood Motor Circuit.
