South of England XC Relay Championships, Wormwood Scrubs Park, 22 October 2016

Building on their experience in the recent Southern Road relays championships, the U17W and U15B teams were joined here by teams at U13G and U17M. As far as I’m aware, it has been many a year since Kingston and Polytechnic have fielded road or cross-country relay teams at this level, but they all performed with great distinction against the strongest clubs in Southern England.

Surrey Ladies League Cross Country – Match 1 Report

Nonsuch Park was blessed with fine weather for the opening league match of the season on Saturday 15th October. Sunny and dry conditions were very welcome, making the gentle 2-lap course quite an appealing prospect.

Senior & Veteran Ladies

Sadly due to injury and prior engagements for some, the Senior team had a lower than usual turnout. With only 5 ladies racing and 5 to score, each knew that every league place and point was vital and finishing the course was a must! In a record league field of 452 athletes running the 4 mile course, our senior team was once again competing in Division 2 this season.

Lionel Wood 1931-2016

The Club is very disappointed to have to announce the death,on May 29th, of former distance runner, Lionel Wood at the age of 85.

Lionel joined Polytechnic Harriers in the 1950s when the many and varied Sports and Social Clubs of Quintin Hogg’s Regent Street Polytechnic mostly had their HQs in the eponymous building up in London W1. There was much scope for joining more than one club and this was certainly the case as the country recovered from WW2.
