Hereward Relay - 27/11/05

A hastily-assembled team of four finished 11th out of 126 teams in this popular 38 mile relay from Peterborough to Ely. Michael Johnsons team talk clearly had the desired effect as his charges skipped across the Fenland landscape like a pack of gazelles.

Michael Johnson led the THH challenge with a gutsy run on leg one, before Anna Garnier sped across the longest leg of the day. The Captain pulled Thames through the field and in doing so clocked the fastest time on stage three, before late call-up Frank Dudbridge took Thames into the top ten on the final slog from Welney to Ely. Thanks are extended to Veronica Richards for her chauffeur service, support and post-race fruit juice.


Ranelagh Mob Match - 26/11/05

A stirling club performance brought home the spoils against our cross the Park friends and rivals. 54 club members finished for Thames against 52 for Ranelagh with 24 saltires packing the top 30. Middle order strength backed up a strong all-round club performance to enable the club to win the match by 1934 pts to Ranelaghs 2917 pts. Corin Hughes travelled down from Loughborough to compete and it was great to see Matt Jones return from a long injury lay-off. Darren Talbot put last weeks Surrey League behind him and newcomers Tom Kingsnorth (7th) David Moore (29th) and Nick Park (57th) all made very strong debut runs for THH. In addition, 16 year old Tom Samuel excelled with a 42:53 clocking in 13th. Many thanks to Wendy and her team of pioneers who braved the cold, whilst David Palairat did a magnificent job as carver both in the clubhouse and afterwards at the Albert. The next big mob match is Sat 21st January v SLH...

Mara Yamauchi smashed her PB with a phenomenal 2:27.38 in the Tokyo marathon, moving up to 5th on the UK all time list.


BMAF 10 mile road championships - 20/11/05

Peter Giles added to his burgeoning medal and trophy cabinet with a magnificent 2nd place. Despite it being a road race championship, the canny Geordies threw in some gravel paths, grassy sections, twisty concrete and icy stretches for good measure. Despite this, none of this was sufficient to stop Peter from claiming the silver medal.


Naomi storms the pier - 20/11/05

In cold but sunny conditions Naomi Warner won the Brighton 10k in a phenomenal PB of 34:42. Naomi passed half-way in 17:00 and hung on to win by over 2 minutes and finished inside the top 35 overall out of 2000.


Surrey Cross Country League - Men - Reigate - 19/11/05

Despite two in the first three Thames were swept aside by a resurgent Herne Hill squad who thoroughly deserved their victory. John Macfarlane yet again led the way with an excellent second place with Phill Sly cruising round in third.

Ian Harkness (11) and the Captain (16) provided some middle order presence with Nick Altmann braving injury to record a superb 21st with David Symons a gutsy 26th. Darren Talbot and then a late flurry of saltires in the late 30s/early 40s closed the Thames team. HHH won the match with 182 pts to THH 228 pts which now puts the red & black squad some 74 pts in the clear. Two down and two to come. Time for the secret weapons to come out of hiding...

Cambridge give Thames the blues - 5/11/05

The Cambridge Ladies and Mens teams posted strong performances exactly a month before the Varsity Match. Rachel Disley yet again excelled herself with a fine victory in the Ladies race whilst David Symons led the Thames mens team home. Nic Gould set a PB for the course and newcomer Sean Donohue ran well on his Thames debut in 26th. Despite our best attempts to engineer a scoring system to allow Thames to appear competitive no suitable methods could be found.
