Only 5 Stragglers took part in the Surrey Masters XC at Richmond Park on Sat 18th Oct, but 4 of them were medallists!
1st W50 Dee Smale
2nd W60 Lynda Chase
2nd M60 Phil Manly
3rd M55 Malcolm Fletcher
After the medals ceremony Phil went straight to Kingston Hospital to have a tic removed. With the mild weather that we're having they're still biting, so take caution when running in the long grass!

The Ladies Team at Richmond Park
The ladies had a great start to the season in the first of the Surrey League XC series in Richmond Park. With a field of 380 div 1 & 2 runners, our two teams finished in 6th and 22nd in place. Well done ladies!

Clean up your spikes and studs, the Cross Country season is almost upon us!
We’re in for another great season of cross country with all the thrills and hills of the English Winter. The first race is the Surrey League on Saturday 11th October with the ladies at Richmond Park and the men at Newlands Corner, Guildford. There will be 3 further races, making 4 in all, for the Surrey League XC championships. (NB for the League races there is no requirement for individuals to be Surrey qualified.)
Last year the ladies finished 9th overall in Division 1 and the men finished 5th in Division 2, after their magnificent win in the final fixture at Lloyd Park. Let’s see if we can do even better this year! Here are the 2014/15 fixtures:
The Stragglers V50 Team:

A very strong performance from the team, finishing 4th out of 11 V50 teams. With a cumulative finishing time of 1hr 13mins 19secs for the 3 mile course, and only 8 seconds behind Woking AC who took 3rd place. Well done guys!
