Men’s Cross Country Match 1 Results- Wimbledon Common


Motley Crew

Most of the team..

After a dry hot summer of road racing, the mens team were looking forward to some cooling cross country through the hills and fields of Surrey.  Instead we got a hot sunny day on pretty hard ground over at Wimbledon common for Match 1 of the 2016/17 Cross Country Season.


Despite the extra accidental  mile in lap one that fair took the wind out of a few competitors’ sails (this one included), we had a great afternoon out at the common, and got off to a good start to the season.
Well done to all – seems we are in for a more competitive season this year, with full complements from every team and a couple of new strong teams coming into our division.

Special congrats to Paul Cheetham for actually winning the Div 4 match individuals, to Dylan Grimes & Chris Peskett  for their first (of many no doubt) x-country appearances for barnes, and to new comers Charlie Luckin and Al Wood-  Wimbledon locals, but throughly enjoyed and  in for some more –  Thanks to all for making the effort and showing up.
We should have an even larger and stronger team next match – 12th November – Epsom.  with a few returning experienced strong runners.
