Round 4 – Shuttleworth, Biggleswade

Round 4 – Shuttleworth, Biggleswade




January 17th 2010 – Shuttleworth, Biggleswade

The team travelled all the way to Biggleswade in Bedfordshire for the latest round of the Chiltern Cross Country League on Saturday 16th and there were some strong performances from the team, notably Christine Murray leading the girls home in fine form again and Howard Papworth finishing 1st Vet 50 in the division.  Despite our best efforts we slipped one place in the league to 5th place. 

The Sail Banner arrived just in time for the trip to Biggleswade and in a flash the 5 meter whopper was erected.  What a proud moment for Thame Runners. “May God Bless Her, And All Who Sail In Her”. Eye Eye Cappin !

In review, there was overwhelming support for the course from Thame.  It was interesting and challenging enough with a couple of hilly sections, some swooping downhills and was reasonably secure under foot even though there had been the big thaw and some downpours only one or two days before.  Thame Tigers big up the “The Biggers” !

Now with only one match to go, we’ll be hoping for a good turnout to see if we can secure our best finishing position for several years.
