Seconds to Fourths looked on paper to be a closely fought contest, and this certainly proved to be the case yesterday. It was an honest and gutsy effort from all who ran at Wandlebury – everyone represented the club with real passion and left everything out there on the course. I couldn’t have asked for anything more as captain, even if the results didn’t go the way we had wanted.
The day could not have started any better, with the Women’s IIs performing fantastically to finish with a 1-2-3 at the front to beat a very strong Cambridge side. There were again some great individual performances in the Women’s IIIs.
The men’s affairs were true run races, with Cambridge coming home victorious, though by agonisingly close margins. Both the IIs and IIIs couldn’t have pushed the Tabs any closer, in what were hard-fought contests – the Snails matching the Barbarians man for man at four runners each.
When all is said and done, hats off to Cambridge who upped their game hugely on previous years – credit to themselves and their captain James Chettle, for putting out solid teams and performing on the day. Oxbridge running is certainly in a great place at the moment with both clubs fielding strong sides across all events.
Now on to Blues – we have a score to settle. Lets make Wimbledon huge.
