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.

Jim Day Memorial Pole Vault Competition

25thSeptember 2016


It was an early, chilly, soggy, early start on Sunday morning as we strapped the poles to the car and made our way to the 10th anniversary Jim Day Memorial Pole Vault Competition.

It was a busy event with an impressive start list of over 100 vaulters(I know, you didn’t realise that there were that many pole vaultersin the UK) divided into 6 pools based on starting heights & SB’s and PB’s.

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.

We had two champions at this championships. Pat Logan who had a rather long wait to make an m55 debut in these championships as the last edition 14 months earlier he was one of the oldest m50s won the 100m and 200m double.

Our other winner, Simon Byway won the m45 400m hurdles and got a masters PB out of it (Power of 10 lists it as an absolute PB so anything better must be pre 2005)
