South of Thames bronze for Harriers 8-man team

Herne Hill Harriers 8-man team placed third in the South of Thames 5-mile cross-country championships on Saturday at Polesden Lacey. The 4-man team placed 5th for the second Saturday in a row, following last week’s London Championships.
Harriers cross-country ladies were short of a full team with only three women competing, but saw excellent individual runs on the hilly course from Karen Ellison 6th, Helen Hadjam 29th and Jess Winfield 58th.
Across town, in a local road racing event, new HHH club member Matt Lawes placed 4th in the Wimbledon Half Marathon, clocking a very promising time of 74 minutes, 8 seconds.
