Surrey County Cross Country Championships – a start into 2017 with the glitter of medals

This year, the SCAA XC Champs were once more over at Lloyd Park. The park presented itself at its very best, for Lloyd Park’s ever-muddy standards, that is. The hill that I had marked as steep and slippery on the map very much lived up to expectations, and the top part of the course, even though only slightly undulating, just sucks the strength out of the legs. It is a championship course. And we had true championships; the very best in Surrey were there.

Dear athletes, families and friends,

 

All who have been out on Sunday 6/11 to support Match1 of this year’s Downs Cross Country League will have seen that this League is now the biggest Cross Country League in North Surrey for young athletes aged 8 to school year 6 (U11), school years 7-8 (U13) and school years 9-10 (U15). With ten clubs participating, over 80 athletes contesting the U11 and U13s races, and still 42 runners in the U15 age group, this is a record. So if you are wondering why the number on your disc may have been a little lower that what you were used to seeing last year: You are now up against many more runners, and you are running with athletes who are top of Surrey, some are top nationally. So all our achievements have to be weighed against these facts. Yet you will see that we are very much up for this challenge.

Surrey Ladies League Cross Country – Match 2 Report

The second league match of the season took place at a chilly Mitcham Common on Saturday 3rd December. Some ladies had a hazy memory of the course as our last trip here was almost 4 years ago, whilst for others it was a new venue.  The Seniors race was held over a gently undulating 2-lap course measuring 6K.

Nick Mahy 1954-2016

News of the death of yet another regular performer from the Polytechnic Harriers Young Athletes Group of the 1970s, who have departed long before their time, is a great sorrow and yet again will make some of the Club’s older members question their own mortality.
