National 6- and 4-Stage Road Relays

Our teams produced two very sound performances at the National 6- and 4-Stage Road Relays in Sutton Coldfield today. Our men finished 20th and our women 21st in this very high quality event. With neither team suffering from an obvious weak link, Matt Barnes-Smith and Linzi Snow delivered our fastest runs of the day.

The popularity of the London City Runner Metropolitan Cross Country League shows no signs of abating, with nigh-on record fields in both the women's and men's races at Ruislip on Saturday. The season promises to be extremely competitive, and our teams showed that they will again be involved in both title battles as well as the Men's Division 1 relegation battle. Our women stole the honours in this first race, while our men's A team was a close 3rd and B team a gritty 13th. Kat Gundersen's 8th place was the stand-out performance.

Met CC League, Young Athletes, Race 1 at Ruislip

The first Met League fixture of the winter usually throws up a few surprises as some young athletes move into new age groups and budding U15s get to race against their U17 counterparts. Ruislip was no exception in this respect.

The wiser heads amongst our membership with an eye on the first Met League fixture decided against road racing in the dark at Hog Hill on Tuesday night. Apart from the lack of bright light, conditions were good, the surface smooth and sure, and there were a few takers despite the off-putting, steep incline over the first 200m.

Amongst the young athletes, there were some standout performances, notably by Liam Blaikie, who recorded the fastest time of the night in winning the U17M race in 10:15 (nearly a minute faster than his closest U17M rival); just over 30 seconds down was James Stockings, who won the U15B race. Our other winner of the night was Georgina Ferrari in the U15G race, with team mate Holly Bedeau close behind in 2nd.
