Despite athletes competing for school, unwell, recovering from injury and exams, we still had nearly thirty athletes out for our last but one Met League fixture. The course used was like a lake three weeks ago and there was doubt whether this would go ahead. Fortunately the rain eased off over Xmas which enabled London Heathside to hold the races. It was "mud, glorious mud", that was for sure, and it was equally a case of ”stay on your feet" on the sharp descent down the hill. Would the mud and wind put our runners off? Not one bit, they replied and, together with our strong Under 11 squad, we hold a 2-point lead over SBH with one match remaining, which will be like a home match for our runners as most of them train at Trent Park every Sunday morning.
