Saturday 10th November saw our next outing at Danson Park near Bexleyheath. The men had the day off so all the focus was on the juniors and senior women. Despite KFL being a focal point the following day we were still fortunate to field a team of 5 ladies.
Becky Morrish was always going to be first home for the team despite feeling under par over the 3 laps, 5k course in 7th (17:51). It was only a matter of less than 3 minutes before Mandy Barker was to appear on the home straight, narrowly missing out on a couple of positions, coming in 52nd (20:15). Julie Harker managed to maintain her smiles around the course, comfortably coming in 138th (25:46). The remainder of the team were not far behind with Jane Pilbeam in 146th (26:30) and Diana Tilston being delighted with her 5k (albeit recording slightly short) cross country terrain time in 154th (27:40).
The women’s team (3 to score) finished in 16th and remain 16th on 197 points after 3 events.
After 3 events the current individual performance standings are as follows:
25th – Mandy Barker
59th – Julie Harker
63rd – Diana Tilston
67th – Becky Morrish
131st – Jane Pilbeam
172nd – Kate Cole
197th – Fiona Buckingham
212th – Keeley Hoad
216th – Natasha Wild
The next fixture will be held Saturday 24th November at Foots Cray Meadows (no senior women). The final meeting will be held on Saturday 2nd February (no juniors) so please put these dates in your diary.
Happy running folks!
