We started our 16th cross country season in the Chiltern League on October 8th at Luton, Wigmore Valley, marking the start of a series of 5 races around the district. The final race culminating a fantastic season for Thame Runners, with more new faces representing the club this year than ever before. The 5 events spanning the Autumn and Winter months, brought together some of the best clubs in the region and the finale at Wing on 11th February was a barnstorming performance from Thame.
Richard Slater and Hayley Parry were our team captains again this year with entry to all five Chiltern Cross Country events is paid for by the club, open to every member of Thame Runners.
There really is no minimum standard required to take part, so please do feel welcome to join next year. If you wish to partake this year and we will organise your race numbers and keep you informed of lift sharing and other arrangements.
