The 3rd Met League XC race a home fixture at the Scrubs on Saturday December 5th.
So how about a double celebration – racing the Met League in the afternoon with the biggest turnout of the season so far, followed by a post-race Christmas Party at the Queen’s Head pub, in the evening to celebrate the day’s racing and the festive season!
They have offered us a deal on a buffet dinner at £10 per person. We need to pay in advance for this so, if you would like to come along, the deadline for giving Siana Jones/or Phil Wetton your £10 will be Tuesday the 24th of November.
All Valley members are invited including 1st and 2nd claims, officials and helpers. Starting time is7.30pm.
So put Saturday December 5th in your diary and make it a Met League race and Christmas party to remember!
It was a wild and windy afternoon for the second Met League at Stevenage on Saturday 7th November. Waves of heavy rain with strong winds were forecast up till mid afternoon. Combined with heavy traffic on the North Circular because of roadworks, and QPR playing at home, this made for a tediously miserable journey up to Stevenage with not a lot of time to spare. Fortunately the second car of ladies made it, although with various team members unable to attend meant the team was one short for the Seniors and two short for the Veterans. Nonetheless they set off valiantly in intermittently driving rain for two laps of the course.
Thames Valley’s under 13 girls went top of the Metropolitan League on a very wet and windy course in Stevenage. With Ava White winning her second league race and eight other Valley girls taking part things look promising for the rest of the season.
