Match vs Milocarians and others, Sandhurst - 28/10/17

Twelve Saltires travelled to Sandhurst to take on Milocarians (and other clubs) at Sandhurst. It was an enjoyable day out with the sounds of gunshots and a tug-of-war going on near the finish line making a unique backdrop. The team performed very strongly, we narrowly lost to Milos by only 4 points with the captain and Jim Allchin ensuring the Thames vest was prominent at the front end.

BMAF Cross-Country Relays, Long Eaton - 28/10/17

Thames' V45 men's team duly completed a calendar year grand slam of BMAF titles by winning the cross-country relays to go with their road relay and cross-country team titles.
On a pancake flat 3km course the pre-race concern was getting heads around a race whose length barely constituted a warm up for the marathon and ultra-boys. We also had worries about Matt’s survival chances given he had a head chock full of cold. Credit to him for turning out at all.
Shamelessly reaping the advantages of going first, Ben struggled to hang on to lots of V35s but came home 2nd V45. Matt cleared his tubes and hung on well to hand over in 3rd. Simon had a lot to do and did it by taking the lead shortly before the handover in a well-judged race which gave him the 2nd fastest time of the day. Paul extended that lead a little as did Andy on the glory leg despite a spirited challenge from Salford. With 4 of the fastest 10 laps of the day it was a very solid all round team performance.

Leg 1 Ben Reynolds 10:00
Leg 2 Matthew Lynas 11:26
Leg 3 Simon Baines 09:58
Leg 4 Paul Cheetham 10:45
Leg 5 Andy Weir 10:22

Match result:
1. Thames H&H: 52:31
2. Salford Harriers: 52:56
3. Rotherham Harriers: 55:42

Surrey Masters' Cross-Country Championships, Petersham - 21/10/17

Richmond Park was the scene of the action last weekend with the Surrey Masters Cross-Country Championships and the K&P 5 taking place on Saturday. Well done to all those who braved Storm Brian (both running and supporting). Ten Saltires took part in the event with much success: in the combined W/M60+ race Liz Stavreski was an impressive 4th overall taking the V40 bronze. There were further medals galore as Vikki Filsell took bronze in the V50 category, Denise Barnett bronze in the V45 category, Mike Farmery silver in the V65 and Anna Garnier went one better with gold for the V60. Alison Carpenter was 4th V55, Maddalaine Ansell 7th V45 and Rhodri Davies and James Foster 12th and 19th V60.
Thames took the bronze team medals for the women's V45 (only 2 points behind the winning team) and were 7th in the men's V60 team.
In the men's V40 race, Paul Cheetham took gold in the V45 category (3rd overall) with Andy Weir taking the V50 gold (4th overall) and Petter Johnsen was 5th in the V40 category. All great runs and it’s good to see Thames so prominent at the front end of both races.
