South of Thames 7.5 mile XC Champs, Beckenham, 15th Dec 2018, Results and Report
Treasurer James Moore spearheaded Croydon’s challenge at the South of Thames 7.5 mile championships at Beckenham in some of the worst conditions of the season so far.
In freezing temperatures and horizontal rain, nine Croydon Harriers took on some of the best clubs south of the river of Thames.
Moore, who was picked out of the hat to represent us at the London Marathon in April, finished 143rd.
Andy Del Nevo and Neil Aikman renewed their battle finishing 179th and 181st. Colin Oxlade was 261st. Laura Marshall was 79th in the women’s race. Keith Brown was 303rd and 11th M60. Women’s track skipper Jules Del Nevo was 312th.
Terry Lapins, who is also taking on the London Marathon in April, made a welcome return to the fold in 324th. Richard Hooper and Norman Hemming enjoyed solid teamwork together throughout the race, finishing in 331st and 332nd.
We had more than enough for a 6 to score team but we haven’t been added into the results! We are chasing the organisers to add us 😊
