MEN’S XC MATCH 1 REPORT

12TH OCTOBER,  3PM RICHMOND PARK

The first XC league fixture of the season was hosted by Kingston and Poly (K&P) on a wet and muddy day in Richmond Park.

There were 324 runners, 44 or which were from 26.2 – the largest represented club!

Of the 44, 15 were new to XC for 26.2.  Gentlemen take a bow:
Ben Chown, Paul Donohoe, Max Riley-Gould, Craig Partridge, Dom Woodbridge, Tom Sellen, Richard Hook, Chris Chapman, Loic Lize-Thir, Jon Kinsey, Ben Woods, Robert Pyke, Bob Dean, Yaswin Ladwa, Owen Jones

Our fastest runner on the day was Ben Chown who was a brilliant second overall. Our A team was 6th out of 9 and B team 3rd out of 8. Big shout out to Dom Woodbridge who stopped to help out another runner.

Once again thank you Ann Bath for providing the much needed hot drinks and cakes, to James and Nick for bringing a Gazebo and Joe Gonzalez who answered the call by  K&P for course marshals.

Remember not to throw away your number bib.

If you haven’t been allocated a number (check https://surreyleague.org/slm/2019-20/clubs/262/)
but would like to run in future matches please contact me.

Finally, a new tradition was born with the XC Club Captain being walked back to the car park under the Gazebo!
