The Concorde One Hour Race - 2023 Event Sunday 4th June - Results
The 2023 event was held on the afternoon of Sunday 4th June at the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in Hayes - with a start time of 2pm. Unfortunately for participants this proved to be the hottest day of the year so far, and the distances covered reflects that.
This is a race to see how far you can run in one hour. Mo Farah holds the world record with 21.33km and Sifan Hassan holds the ladies record at 18.93km. How far can you run or walk in 60 minutes? 5km – easy, a comfortable walk in the park, but how about 10km, 12km, or perhaps even 15km? Perhaps you a member of a club—what is your club record for the one hour event? Perhaps this is your opportunity to set one.
The Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in Hayes is a closed road course with a circuit of just under one mile. It has been reserved exclusively for runners and walkers on the afternoon of Sunday 4th June. We will be recording each of your laps and we will have prizes for those achieving the furthest distance. Your entry will include:

2023 Race Results - for Sunday 4th June
* Of the nine runners who ran last year as well as this, all ran shorter distances this year, although in Krishna's case this may be a "rounding error" due to the slightly different course layout this year.
Event and Club Records
Since this event has been run on an officially measured course any achievements should be suitable for recognition in club records. Note UK Athletics License: 2022-43345.
There were insufficient numbers to run a team competition. If we had done so we would have looked at the total distance achieved by teams of three, at least one member being a lady. If we had applied that criteria this year then the BAAC team would have come first with a combined distance of 35.41km (Mike Dennison, Colin Haylock and Trish McCabe) and Ealing Southall & Middlesex a close second with 33.79km (Mark Kencroft, Patricia Thomas and Nick Vanson).
A minimum of £1 per participant will be given to the charity Dreamflight. Including additional funds from the catering on the day the amount raised will exceed £100.
