South of Thames 5M

A big well done  to our runners at the South of Thames 5 miles team championship on Wimbledon Common.

The men’s 4 man team title has been a long time coming as the last time we won it was 1976, although the barring clauses that used to exist for this race combined with our unrivalled team success in the “senior” version of these championships made it more difficult to win in past decades.

Winning the 8 man title as well and for the third time this decade made it a very good day for HHH, with Chris Busaileh picking up an individual silver medal and Suzie Richards also being the first woman to cross the finish line. A full report appears in the news page for November.
