ENGLISH SCHOOLS XC
SLH had 4 runners selected to represent their counties at Donington Park last Saturday, with Tom Holden (SB), Amy Billup (SG), and Will Bardsley (IB) running for Surrey, and Laurie Pope (JB) running for London. The course was very dry and dusty, winding around an exposed hillside, wedged between Donington Park race track and the East Midlands Airport. Already very narrow for ~350 runners, the course was made narrower by the marker tape blowing in the strong wind. Tom finished strongly in 18th
SURREY LEAGUE DIV 1
A fantastic Men's turnout for the last Surrey League fixture at Richmond Park when we were facing relegation to Division 2. Our Young Athletes (above) set the tone with some great runs that meant the series Under 15 title going to Laurie Pope,and the Under 17 to Joe Lyne. On the senior front it was very close but we beat Clapham Chasers and they go down.
