Sunday League 2021 – Cheshunt

Ladies’ Team report

After what for many has been a long hiatus, 17th October was the first of five “Sunday League” races for this season and a return to the mud which we all secretly love. Conditions were pretty good, the earlier rain had stopped and the ground was nice and soft.
In a turn of the tables from yesterday Jessica Prior was our first lady home in 4th place overall followed a mere ten seconds or so later by Emily Jeanes. Kat Alpe was our third lady home (and also another super-tough woman who had also run yesterday – for her first claim club). Despite not intending to run my spikes somehow made it onto my feet thanks to a delayed start and I finished TP fourth lady with new member Anna Sikorska our fifth and final A team scorer.
 
We had a brilliant turn-out so plenty for a B team composing Melissa O’Hare, Judy Prior and Sue Cross. We had so much depth that we also had a super-strong vets team for the icing on the cake. Really strong running also by Claudia Canova, Sue Thomas, Celine Goldsmith, Rosemary Bains, Christine Hawker, Emily Kenworthy, Christine Read and Jill Atkins very admirably bringing up the rear. Sadly Foulla Green had to pull out due to her hamstring injury flaring up but she kept in good spirits cheering everyone through the finish and providing cakes at the end.
A very impressive start to this cross-country league especially considering that seven of this women’s team also ran the gruelling Met League race the previous day!

Men’s Team Report

The following day we had the first Sunday League fixture at the usual course over in Cheshunt. Nothing like a doubleheader to kick off the XC season for this year!
Again, a small team in all compared to our usual but the 8 scorers on the day were Jim Barber, Luke Barker, Steve, David Kunzmann, Paul, Adam, Mike and Del. Huge well done to Jim who won the race on the day, and massive hats off to everyone in the team on the men’s and women’s side who ran both days.
Official results aren’t out at the time of me writing this but it looks like we finished 4th in the overall and possibly 2nd or 3rd in the Vets. A half-decent start but definitely a lot of work for us to do if we want to be picking up silverware at the end of the season.

Met League Race 1 2021 – Claybury

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.

Note: In Under 11 Boys Robin Greenwood is placed 2nd but this is under review as Robin was leading when mistakenly stopped short of the line but still finished at same time as the next competitor. It should be 1st equal at worst.
