Women’s Team Report

On Saturday we returned to Claybury for the first Met League race in two years. Despite the fact that “The Hill” has definitely got steeper and longer during the pandemic, our TP ladies performed brilliantly as ever. In a competitive field, we had three TP women in the top 50, with Emily Jeanes in 11th place, Jess Prior just behind in 13th and Alex Baird in 32nd. Fiona Hathaway, Emily Clarke and Judy Prior also scored for the club. We also had strong performances from Sue Thomas, Christine Hawker and Christine Read.
 
After the first race our senior women placed 4th overall in Division 1, and our vets placed 5th overall, so very strong positions going into race 2. Well done to all our runners, and extra hats off to everyone who did it all again on Sunday morning at Cheshunt!

Men’s Team Report

On Saturday we had the first Met League fixture of the season at Claybury. We headed over with a small but quality-filled men’s team.

Our 12 scorers in order were Dougal, Jim, Carl, Paul, Scott, Steve Moss, Francis, Mike, Alan Hathaway, Luke Bowie, Dave Birks and Edwin. They were well followed up by Ian Ellis, Paul Hart, Eamonn Cullen and Giovanni. That was good enough for 10th position in Division 1 so an okay start with a platform to build on now for the rest of the season.
Our Vet’s had a standout result and a little bit of Trent Park history with our first ever fixture win in division 1 for any of our teams. Massive congratulations to the team of Jim, Paul, Scott, Steve, Mike and Alan.

The next ML Fixture is a WGC (Stanborough Park) on November 13, we really need as many people racing for the team as possible.
