Surrey Men’s CC League M2 November 10th 2018

Division 3 Epsom Downs

 


On an inclement Downs, the turnout of 13 runners mirrored that of M1 at Roundshaw and our 5 leading exponents repeated their forward placings. However, there was a fair old gap before our remaining 5 scorers hauled us back into contention, and it was, sadly, not enough to enhance our overall position at the halfway stage of this winter’s challenge.

Surrey Masters Cross Country Championships – 20 th October 2018 Print

In continued unseasonably warm conditions for cross country racing, a small team of our veteran ladies competed at the Surrey Masters Championships on Saturday 20 th October. The championship is held in Richmond Park over a shorter 3.85 mile 2 lap undulating course. The ladies race is combined with the mens V60 race – this year comprising a field of 138 athletes.

The whole team raced well and finished closely together - with Rachel Brookes first home in 53 rd place (28:07) for the W35 team. Debbie Raymond and Liz Richardson were not far behind after, trading positions a couple of times during the race, with Debbie finishing in 29:15 (for 72 nd place) and Liz in 79 th place with a time of 29:34. Despite all 3 now being in the W40 category and racing against many W35 ladies, the team raced competitively in a very close race and were unlucky to finish in 4 th place in the W35 team race (just outside of the medals!). Nicky Atkins also had a great race in the W50 category to finish in 84 th place overall in a time of 29:58. Well done ladies – this bodes well for the rest of the season!

Surrey Mens CC League, Division 3, Match 1

October 13th 2018 Roundshaw Down

 


Matt Hyett’s squad travelled to the old Croydon Airport site on Roundshaw Down for their first Division 3 match of the winter season in an effort to establish an early challenge for a quick return to Division 2. Divisions 3 and 4 now race together, so there was a large field of over 275 (149 in D3) for the two-lap course, which appeared somewhat innocuous, but 5 Miles is 5 Miles!

Surrey Ladies League Cross Country, Match 1 Report – 13 th October 2018 Print

The opening races of the new season took place at Wimbledon Common in warm sunny conditions on 13 th October 2018. Our ladies enjoyed a dry and undulating course over 6.9 kilometres, a little longer than the usual distance for the first race.

Despite some long-term injuries affecting several of the ladies team, it was pleasing to have a squad of 5 on the start line. A close battle between our veteran team members saw Liz Richardson, continuing her return to former fitness, lead the team home in 75 th place (34:08). Following closely behind was Nicky Atkins in 78 th place (34:36). A little further back Nicki Murphy raced well after recovering from breaking her foot a few months ago to finish with a time of 36 minutes 10 for 104 th place.

A close battle between our senior ladies saw another exciting finish - with Jo Murphy, returning to< racing after starting her family, finishing in 38:29 (140 th place) just ahead of Harriet Lester in 38:37 (143 rd place). In a seemingly ever-growing field of 239 Division 2 athletes, the team finished in 16 th place out of 22 teams and look forward to improving their position in the league over the season.
