The Hellraiser Hell Runner - 29/10/06

Alex and Victoria Richmond had mixed fortunes over this interesting sounding 12 mile XC course which included steep hills and waist deep bogs.

Original Mountain Marathon - 29/10/06

In the event formerly known as the KIMM (this year held in the Galloway Forest Park in southern Scotland) Chris Daniels and Simon Wurr finished 17th in the elite category out of 70 teams. Nick Maloney shot through the field in the B class on day two to finish 52nd out of 300 whilst Andy Robinson battled through injury to finish 65th in the medium score out of 260. All categories involve teams of two completing a long distance orienteering course in a mountainous area carrying full camping kit for an overnight stay. None of the above are planning returning to the area in the immediate future!

Chris was followed home by new member and Westminster pupil Alex. Rumours that flags had been removed leading the early leaders astray have yet to be substantiated..... The ladies captain led the ladies home with Maddalaine and Liz not far behind.


Great South Run - 22/10/06

National Road Relays: Mens 6 Stage - 21/10/06

Thames finished 43rd at Sutton Park with a make shift team that required two late changes in the 48 hours before the race. Given our lowly placing at the Southern 6 Stage (28th) this represented an improvement but it is still some way below the level that the club is capable of producing. It is hoped that we can be stronger for the challenges that lie ahead.

John McFarlane ran a strong first leg and the clubs fastest with 18:05 for the undulating 5.85 km route. The Captain was unable to prevent a flood of elite runners coming scything past but Andy Weir gained three places with a strong run on leg three. Nic Gould and Al Kennis shored up the second half before Steve Paddock brought the club home in 43rd.

Despite the presence of armed guards every 100m of the route and the somewhat erratic nature of the traffic control (not to mention a cold) Matt Ran 2h 41:35. Matt will be be back in the UK in the New Year and we hope to see him at some of our fixtures during this period.

TH&H ladies put up a strong challenge with TH&H A placing third just behind Belles and Ranelagh and TH&H B placing first B team in eleventh. Lucy Hassell ran a great race for first lady home and Alex Richmond made an impressive Surrey League debut for the club with a top ten finish. With nothing in it between the top three clubs it should make for an interesting further three fixtures....

Surrey Cross Country League - Men - 7/10/06

Despite the club rallying to field 15 runners in the opening Surrey League Thames were unable to get close to reigning champions Herne Hill who dominated the match at Brockwell Park. However with several new members making their debuts in the league and some star runners keeping their powder dry for the time being there is no reason why THH cannot fight back from their current 4th place.

John McFarlane ran well for 4th only 13 days after the Toronto marathon whilst the Captain sneaked inside the top 10 after a big charge on the second lap. Andy Weir indicated a welcome return to form and James Cordwell ran extremely well after running the Berlin marathon two weeks earlier. Close packing in the mid-order was rounded off by Pablo Lazo and Steve Paddock whilst it was great to see Tim Beer don the saltire rather than his golfing garb. Herne Hill now take a seemingly unasailable lead on to Coulsdon (11 Nov) but no doubt the saltires will be stronger later on in the season and will challenge Belgrave and Ranelagh.
