A new course for the Met League at Hillingdon was well received by the runners.
TVH is sad to report the death, on Saturday 6th December, of Eddie Elderfield who joined the Club in April 1948.
Geoff Goodman fondly remembers Eddie –
Saturday dawned crisp and frosty with a clear, clear blue sky, no wind and great prospects for a day which were amply fulfilled.
Thames Valley Harriers had nine young athletes representing Middlesex in the Southern Inter-Counties Championships in Oxford. Charlotte Buckley led the under 13 girls team home to a magnificent second place. She had her usual steady start and worked her way up to third place after negotiating an 800m trail of deep mud. With the finish in sight she then went away to win the race by five seconds. This was her best win of the season against most of the top girls in the South of England.
