Susanne Dietrich's accession to the YA Cross Country managership blossomed at Stoke Park,with 22 youngsters in action over all 6 races - more than have attended over the last 5 years in toto. Out of the medals maybe…..but perhaps not next year!
The Club were particularly grateful for the on-the-day agreement with Robin Shaw,the Tiffins Boys Master I/C,for enabling both 'outfits'(Ugh! what an horrible word!) to field as fuller teams as possible in all the boys events.

For the club it was very nice to see that athletes from the main training group, Richard/Vanessa’s group and Ian’s group participated - this was wholesome club effort. A warm thank you to all the families who kindly offered transport and support on the day – without you, our success would not have been possible. Special thanks to R. Shaw, K&P member and Tiffin XC manager, who kindly agreed that all K&P athletes who normally run for their school, would on this occasion support the club team.
All runners are entitled to participate in the Surrey League races. Our U13 and U15 runners, and also our U11 runners are warmly invited to participate in the Epsom Downs League Races which, like the Surrey League races and the Surrey champs contribute towards county selection (more info is in the attached newsletter). If we keep the momentum going – we could win the Downs League. Are you up for it?
Again, well done to everybody, and I hope to see you in training (remember: extra XC training Sundays 2 pm Richmond Park) and at the next races.
