16 year old Tom Samuel gained the best position of the day with 92nd in the Under 17 Mens race which was his first time inside the top 100 in five national cross country events. Seven Thames men braved the chilly conditions at Parliament Hill. The Captains sprint was rewarded with 100th place whilst new member Julian Rendall was the star performer in 113th. Scotsman Nick Altmann was 153rd before Nic Gould rounded off an excellent break through season with Andy Howse close behind. Alex Gaskell rounded off the team with Frank Dudbridge a little further back.

In addition to the saltires on view many congratulations to Lucy Hassell who was 10th in the Ladies race and Nick Talbot who was a magnificent 8th and Sam Aldridge 77th.

Half Marathon - 5/2/06

Mara Yamauchi scorched round the streets of Tokyo with a half marathon time of 69:24 having passed 10k in 32:06 and in doing so ran the third fastest time ever for a GB woman...


Long Mynd Valleys Fell Race - 5/2/06

A strong team of 6 made the trip to Church Stretton in Shropshire and competed in one of the more arduous fell races on the circuit on which many a northern fell runner has come a cropper. The Captain led the way home in 7th hotly pursued by Chris Daniels and Andy Howse in 12th and 13th. David Symons was next man home in 19th before the sprint of the century ensued between Ultra International Matt Lynas and GB rowing coach and new Thames recruit Nick Maloney. Matts dip at the finish was sufficient to see him win the battle for 39th. Bring on the Three Peaks was the cry!

Mens Surrey Cross Country League - 4/2/06

The fourth second place in the Surrey League demonstrates that we have been second best all season to our friends and rivals at Herne Hill. Despite losing our grip on the league after three straight wins it was great to see Ian Harkness and Nick Altmann bounce back after the Southerns. Tim Woodthorpe backed up his 23rd place in the Midlands with his best ever run in a saltire. It was also heartening to see Andy Weir gradually getting back to form and Alex Gaskell making the scoring ten after a period of illness. Many thanks to all members who have run for the club this season in what is always a highlight of the season.

Ladies Surrey Cross Country League - 4/2/06

Well, at the beginning of the week it looked like we might be able to challenge the all conquering Ranelagh ladies for a win in the final fixture. However, by Saturday morning injuries, old and new, and a badly placed rabbit hole put paid to such thoughts. That said we put in a pretty good performance. Julia Bleasdale excelled winning the race with apparent ease on her league debut and return from injury. Kate, Alison and Anna packing in through the 20s and Vikki not far behind made up the remainder of the scoring team. Di, Julia Fea and fast improving Isabel provided the essential back up and all had good runs. We finished fourth overall. The TH&H ladies should be proud of their performances over the season.

1.	Julia Bleasdale		20.51
22.	Kate Symons		22.58
