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.

Chingford League fixture 1: 6th October

Liam Blakie
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.

South of England 6/4 Stage Road Relays

Dave Cox
Our senior teams turned in solid performances this weekend in the South of England Road Relays. Our men's team was 7th in the 6-Stage while our women finished 8th in their 4-Stage race. We also completed B teams in both races, curiously enough both finishing 36th. Matt Barnes-Smith's run was the best of our senior athletes.

Two outstanding runs, from Dave Cox and Richard Holland, helped earn our over-50s team silver medals in their 4-stage event which preceded the senior race and used the same course.
