With over 100 TVH athletes entered there many fine performances across all age groups in both men’s and women’s events at the County Championships. Well done to all athletes who competed, there were lots of personal best performances and even more medal winners.
On a cold and blustery day, Thames Valley Harriers ladies made a great start to the UKWAL Premier Division pulling away in the last few events from Edinburgh for a commanding victory. TVH won by 17.5 points at the home of last year’s champions, Birchfield Harriers, who finished 1 point behind Edinburgh in 3rd place.
TVH took one of their largest teams ever to a national league match at Alexander Stadium, Birmingham. Everyone made a significant contribution to TVH’s victory. As usual, there was a fantastic atmosphere amongst the team from the first to last event. Despite the cold weather conditions, TVH ladies were rewarded with an amazing 8 wins, 4 new club records and 8 personal best performances. The team is incredibly well balanced this year with points being evenly split between A and B strings, and between track and field. It was very encouraging to see all our new athletes being doing so well. Continue reading Victory for TVH Ladies at the UK Women’s League Premier Division – Match 1

The hotel stay and team meal allowed team members to catch up and for the now famous TVH Spirit to rekindle after the relatively dormant winter months.
This weekend the National road relays made their bi-annual visit to Sutton Park. With temperatures hitting tropical levels and the ice cream van fully stocked with 99 flakes, what could go wrong? Naturally the British runners were well prepared for the heat wave; they made sure to leave their sun cream at home in the cupboard and wear their shortest short shorts for the occasion. Luckily St John’s ambulance were on high alert throughout the day, armed with after sun! Continue reading TVH Ladies top 10 finish at National Road Relays
