English National CC Championship: Seniors

The 2010 English National Cross Country Championships again had our members reaching for the history books as the current men’s squad threatened to match the achievements of our legendary squad of 1958-63 and Matt Gunby enjoyed our men’s highest individual placing for 35 years. Jess Sparke was disappointed to only finish 7th, and two of our top four women dropped out of their race injured, leaving the women’s squad – the Southern champions – a little deflated.


 Once the lineup of an excellent men’s team had been decided, team manager Terry McCarthy did the sums, examined what was required to medal, and said the realistic aim was a top 6 finish in the main, 6-to-score, competition. This would probably require an average of 65 points per man. We had 11 men on the start line who are “top 25 in the Met League” material, including a few top 5.


Trent Park Chingford League: Young Athletes

Our runners were well represented in the Chingford League Young Athlete races at Trent Park on Saturday. The good turnout yielded more promising results and for the U15 Girls put a hand firmly on the team trophy with the final positions to be decided at the relays in a few weeks time.
