Met CC League, Seniors, fixture 3 at Wormwood Scrubs: Seniors

While the club's top U23 women were in Liverpool racing in the European CCTrials, the rest of the squad took a major step towards clinching their first-ever London City Runner Metropolitan CC League title at Wormwood Scrubs on Saturday.

With Linda Jackson the first of 6 women in 21, and Highgate a little weak on the day, the team now has a good buffer of 103 points at the top of the league.

With Serpentine whittling away much of our men's league lead, the team still goes into the Christmas break with their noses in front of the central London outfit as Shaftesbury's challenge appears to have faded. Hywel Care's 3rd place was the stand-out performance.


The Lord Mayor's Mile

There were some fine performances from young club members in the Lord Mayor's Mile held in conjunction with The Lord Mayor's Show.

The best run was from Omar Mansour who won the age 17 (ages as in April) race for men, winning by 1.3 sec, and in the same race, Robbie Meadows was a fine 7th.

James Stockings came a great 6th in the age 15 category while Claudia Conway finished 8th in the women's age 17 group.
