3rd - Bushy Park TT - There were a substantial 900+ runners at the 5th Anniversary race,with the provisional results showing just Natalie Sacre from K&P,in 673rd. Pity more of those turning out cannot boost the local clubs' memberships a tad more,but then we should,perhaps, be thankful for small mercies in that voracious England Athletics have had their "greedy political fingers" offers to the Parkrun Organisation stamped on.

17th - TTs - U17 George Corcoran 24th in 18.40 in Bushy Park;U15 Minty Allen 78th with 25.03 on Wimbledon Common;and W60 Maureen Chitty 48th at 32.10 on Roundshaw Downs.

24th - Snowdonia Marathon,Llanberis - Peter Wilkins ran a splendid PB on a highly scenic,but very tough course around the roads of the National Park - 315th/1325 in 3h.52.21.
News from Tom Beedell & HCA Julian Hough - Running for his home club,Chiltern,Tom was a fine 4th in the first Chiltern League race recently,followed next day by 2nd in a 15M CC race,whilst Julian(Stroud) was also in form,taking 6th/1721 in his club's Half-Marathon in 72.48.
Also in good form is James Robertson,who led his recently-promoted Warwick University squad home in probably the strongest League in the country,Birmingham & District League,Division One. James was 74th/244 in the Div One race which was run concurrently with the other 2 divisions AND the Birmingham Cross Challenge in Sennelleys Park. James,Tom & Julian will hopefully grace our Surrey League team at least a couple of times this winter.
18th - Cambridge - The irrepressible Bilen Ahmet was back again at his Alma Mater to contest the University Cuppers as a Honoured Guest - this time a mere 7 events,but with season's bests over 100(12.3),110H(18.6),200H(29.1) & TJ(11.79),not to mention a 64.5 400,a 1.70 HJ & an almost PB-equalling 3.60 Vault.
