The Trent Park cross country course was once again wet and windy although it didn’t rain during the events. Starting with the Under 11 girls race, TVH had three competitors. Leading the team home, Kate Price was in fourth place throughout the race and Lily Dafter looked very strong as she finished nineth. Further down the field, Camille Rousset stuck to the task as well as the mud for her 31st place.
This year’s London Cross Country Championships saw typical wet and muddy conditions at Parliament Hill on Saturday, but Chris Smith once again shone in the conditions to win the men’s race and lead the Valley men’s team home in 7th place out of 24 teams.

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!

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.
