Men's Surrey League Division 1, Round I, Petersham - 15/10/16
In the opening round of the men's Surrey League, James McMullan was our lead runner, finishing in a fine 10th. He was followed by Ben Reynolds in 29th and Martin Shore in 31st. Richard Kowenicki followed in 37th and tight packing, Simon Molden in 52nd and Nic Gould in 53rd, with Matt Lynas, Ed Catmur, Nick Altmann and Brian Thursby-Pelham closing out the scoring team, brought us home in 6th place. Many congratulations to Henry Jones who run his first race in the Saltire to close the Thames runners. There is a changing of the guard in the menís division and we are having to fight harder to hold our place. Nevertheless, with at least four of our quicker runners in absence, this was an excellent performance and lays a good springboard to maintain our first division status this season.
Ladies' Surrey League, Division 1, Round I, Nonsuch Park - 15/10/16
In the Ladies' Division 1 match at Nonsuch Park, Thames put out two teams to finish 8th and 20th overall.
Katy Hedgethorn showed she meant business by going out with the leaders on her Surrey League debut. Despite paying for that fast start a little she rallied well on the second lap and finished an excellent 5th in Division 1 to open our scoring account. Despite being hampered by recent broken ribs, Joanna Shillington showed she has not lost her great form from the summer as she ran with her customary smile to finish 25th and second TH&H scorer. Ignoring recent injury problems, Liz Stavreski battled well to finish 36th as our third scorer. The race to make up our scoring five was intense, with our next six runners all finishing within a minute of each other. Leading the way was Jo Davies who finished 67th with a returning Claire Altmann battling through the field to close the A team in 71st. Vikki (75th), Andrea (76th), Annette (84th) and Anna (89th) were the remaining four in that minute, all undoubtedly pushing Claire to a higher finish. Jess (128th) and Jo Winn-Smith (197th) both had strong runs to ensure we closed two teams.
