On behalf of Hillingdon AC, Gavin Collett would like to thank everyone who helped make the London City Runner Metropolitan League fixture at Ruislip on Saturday such a success.

The week leading up to the race had been fairly traumatic with the ramifications of a coroner’s report being released from a fatal accident at another cross country fixture earlier in the year. It sometimes felt like the eyes of a nation were on us as we promoted the first cross country fixture after the report.

But the magnificent members and friends of Hillingdon AC came up trumps and promoted an incident-free fixture on what is regarded as one of the best courses around, a good old fashioned traditional cross country.

I will not name names for fear of forgetting someone, but you know who you are.

The course preparers, the officials, the marshals, the first aiders, the clubhouse staff and anybody else who knows me, you were brilliant!

Thank you
