Mike. Another new year and back up the M11 to Royston and the rolling hills of Therfield Heath; one of the highlights of the cross country calendar! (Known as the Royston Roaster). Not quite the freezing icy conditions of last year, but still a bright sunny morning with a frost on the ground which made the course slippery in places.Thomas, who admitted to starting off too fast up the first hill, finished in an impressive 22nd position, followed by local running star Andrew in 41st and Russell in 53rd. Outstanding runs also from David who had sorted his shoes out since Ally Pally and finished way up the field in 63rd, Paul (78th) and Mohammed (96th) both putting in speedy laps. The men's team was completed by Mike, oh so close to that top 100! (109th), Lee, only three hills behind in (125th) and 'there's only one' Don Bennett (286th).

For the ladies, Celia sprinted to the finish in style in 172nd, closely followed by Phoebe (204th), Maud (226th) and debutant Diana (293rd).
The cakes in the refreshment tent were well received by all at the end; thanks to Royston Runners.
Men finished 7th of 18 and the Ladies 11th of 18.
Maud. 'Blasted' hills aside, I thought it was a lovely race - the Marshal's were brilliant!

Men's team 11th out of 18. Women's team 13th out of 18, thanks to Maud finishing 61st out of 133 in the women's field. 356 finished in total.

Mike. A smaller team of runners today, but all credit to everyone who turned up to race for East London Runners in this Sunday League fixture. The course was run over two laps of the scenic Trent Park, mainly in the bone dry leafy woods and it's demanding hills. Russell Price was first home for ELR, breaking into the top fifty of a large field in 49th position. He was followed by David Baldwin in a very good 82nd place, then Lee Wollaston (121st), Michael Wilson (159th), Maud Hodson (237th) who was the sole member of the ladies team and Don Bennett (332nd). A lovely early winters day albeit with a cold breeze, but an enjoyable morning of running. Confirmation of times to follow.

Running conditions were good for this years race. A cool but still morning with a bit of give in the ground but very little mud to speak of. The 4.8 mile three lap course, within Claybury Park, with it's shortish sharp hills and undulations was challenging nonetheless.

The first race which included the Ladies Vets and the Mens over 50's had a very large field. Mike Wilson was first home for ELR followed by Ramesh, Tom and Frank. The ladies Team was led home by Sarah Burns with Maud, Fiona and Sheila following.

The second race was for Male Vets over 40 had 6 ELR competitors with the first 4 home counting in the team points scoring. All had good runs with Manjit Bedi leading for ELR closely followed by Andrew, Danny and Ciaran running as a Vet for the first time and in what was his first cross country race. Paul Thompson and Grant also ran well in what was a good turnout by ELR.

387 finishers which is aleague record. 250 men, 134 ladies , 3 guests. Men's team 10 of 18, vets 8 of 18. Ladies team were 14th of 18.
A very good turn out for the men's team of which the first eight score.The ladies were two runners short of a full team of five, but their scores still count. A mild, sunny day with a fairly strong breeze - the course consisting of three laps which were not too demanding in the way of hills! Celia, Maud, David, Shailesh, Lee, and Emmet were all making their Sunday league debuts. Let's see this turnout continue over the remaining four fixtures and hope also that the ladies can field a full team. An outstanding run from Patrick who finished in 8th position, only a week after running the Amsterdam Marathon and also Andrew in 36th position. It was good to see Doug return after a long lay off due to injury.
