Gosunder Trophy Results 2016

Congratulations to Paul Spencer for winning the latest edition of the Gosunder handicap trophy on Saturday 6th August. Despite the course being fractionally longer than last year due to an enforced detour Paul finished nearly 5 minutes faster than 12 months ago holding off a challenge from Bob Burton in 2nd and Melanie Spencer in 3rd giving us a married couple on the podium.

New for this year we had some relay teams taking part running 2×2.5 miles which allowed some of our younger runners (and parents and coaches) to take part and we saw some great times.

Many thanks to everyone who raced or helped out on the day, there was a great atmosphere which continued into the night back at the clubhouse.

DEVIL TAKES THE HINDMOST 2016

DEVIL TAKES THE HINDMOST 2016
This year’s competition will take place on Tuesday 30th August at 7pm on the
normal course at Rochester Road in Northwood Hills, opposite Haydon School.
Please register at the clubhouse by 6.30pm or be at Rochester Road by 6.50pm.
You compete entirely at your own risk.
All Club members are welcome to run, with a £3 fee for any non-Club members.
This year there will be four competitions:
Women Maximum of eight rounds
Over 40 Men Maximum of eight rounds
Under 40 Men Maximum of ten rounds
Plate (for those knocked out in early stages of the other three competitions)
Maximum of five rounds
How does it work?
All the runners in each competition start together and run up the hill (just under 300m
in length). The last one to the top is eliminated (sometimes more depending on
number of entries).
The remainder jog back down again and then repeat the run up the hill. Once again,
the last one to the top is eliminated (sometimes more depending on number of
entries).
This is repeated until only one runner is left, who is the winner of the competition.
So that everyone gets more than one run, halfway through the event everyone who has
been eliminated to that point in the three main competitions can enter the Plate
competition.
Further details if required from Gavin Collett

Vets Track And Field Final Fixture Perivale.

vets_team

 

The final vets track and field took place at Perivale on Wednesday 13th July reports Jason Steel.
The Men’s team went into the match in 3rd place behind Herne Hill and serpentine after finishing 3rd, 2nd and 2nd at the previous meetings so we really did need to have a good team performance and beat serpentine to finish 2nd overall.
We had an excellent turnout on the night and covered every event well and I could tell from the start we had a very good chance of achieving our goal.
To name a few Mr reliable Keith Seldon scored well in winning the M50 javelin with a good 32.59m and 2nd place in the hammer and Vaughan Ramsay in 2nd M35 High jump and 1st in the long jump 5.43m.
Great efforts on the track as usual from Martin Bateman in the 3000m in 9.33.2s and Andy Moore 2nd in the b string 9.37.00s.Matt Taylor taking 1st place in the B string M35 800m in a solid 2.14.00s. Doug Milsom has been a credit in the M60 age group although he is a M75 and ran a good 3000m for team.
Performance of the night for me came from Andy Wood who ran a superb 200m to win in a quality time of 24.6s which I believe is the fastest time we have ever had in the vets to date.
Finally the 4 x 100m relay, we had won all 3 relays so far and really wanted to make it a clean sweep but faced very tough completion from a strong Herne Hill team, Vaughan ran the 1st leg passing over to Matt Taylor then myself on the 3rd leg, I passed over to Andy Wood on the last leg in a close 2nd place and Andy ran a storming 100m to overtake Herne Hill Harries and snatch victory by .1s of a second with the excellent team time of 50.00s.
Credit also goes to the Women’s team who finished a very creditable 3rd overall, Maria has done a fantastic Job not only for the ladies but keeping us all going with rolls and tea afterwards.
Roll on next year we will only be stronger!

Accommodation Required

An athlete from TVH, Steve Norris who is a regular visitor to the clubhouse, is looking to rent a room and asks whether any club members would have a spare room they would be interested in letting out. Steve assures me he is a very good lodger but due to his current landlady moving away he needs to find accommodation within the next four weeks. Please contact Dave Smith if you know of anywhere suitable.

Job Vacancy

Runners World Watford have a part time weekend vacancy becoming available working some Saturdays and all Sundays with some flexibility on these days around club races.
