Thames Valley Cross Country League
On Sunday, while the juniors were keeping dry at Sportshall, MAC seniors donned their trail shoes for the penultimate Thames Valley League race in Uxbridge. The course was an enjoyable mix of twists, turns, hills, mud and two plunges through the River Pinn! Well done to Dymphna Murphy who ran her first cross country for MAC.
Even more rewarding was that both the men and the ladies had their best results yet with the men finishing in 7th place and the ladies 10th which gave us an overall team position of 7th (although still provisional) our best finish this season!!
We are now 10th in the table which is our highest ever, however, hot on our heels are Marlow Striders, Sheen Shufflers and Handy Cross so this is the rallying cry to get as many of us as possible at next Sunday's final event so we can consolidate 10th place.
15 Kevin Digby; 31 Jon Kew; 39 Simon Lerigo; 45 James Fickling; 64 Anthony Hall; 97 Greg Marsh; 126 Chris Ellis; 138 Chris Sutton; 143 Margarate Maton; 146 Dymphna Murphy; 163 Pawel Czarnomski; 184 Sayeed Islam; 210 Leila Oliver; 214 Paul Thomas; 222 Stjohn Ford; 250 Pauline Siddons; 257 Rosie Ellis; 270 Peter Oldham; 274 Helal Stephan

Leila organised a successful taster session on Wednesday as part of Fit4Life week. There was a good turnout of visitors and member-helpers. Although the track was out of use, everyone seemed to enjoy Plan B – using the paths alongside for a team challenge.
