Round 2 - Wigmore Valley, Luton – November 7th, 2009.

Well if the last outing held a surprise to see so many Thame Runners returning to the fold, then this event would have made the unprepared faint from shock.  We had 15 men and 6 ladies taking part and amongst them were 3 cross country newcomers in Mick, Christine and Nick plus the return of a past  cross country club champion in Neil Richards and they certainly didn’t disappoint the crowds. 

In our first race Christine was first Thame lady home in an event where only a little more than 30 seconds separated five of our runners.  Next time we’ll remind them not to hold hands until the last straight !

Without the leader of our pack Jovial Jon in attendance it was going to be tough to score big points in the mens race, but we held our own with good placings in the middle of the pack. 

All in all we did well, but couldn’t hold on to our 2nd spot in the division, dropping to 4th overall.  It was more a case of other teams raising their game rather than us falling behind.  I’m sure we’ll hit back in Decmber.
