Last weekend saw the return to racing of the iconic Phil Wicks so here is a #tbt to his last appearance for us at the 2017 National XC Champs in Nottingham. Not just an expert puddle hopper, Phil has earned podium places at national championships in pretty much everything from XC to the marathon - including a tasty gold medal at the British half marathon champs in 2007! We can't decide which of his PBs are more impressive, so we'll just casually mention the 13:56 5000m, the 62:51 HM and the 2:15 marathon. Do with that what you will.

While our main contingent was kicking ass and taking names in Reigate, a small outfit of Bels trekked up North for the Leeds Abbey Dash 10km. And it was good. Our boys took on an unbelievably deep field and all came home with road PBs to show mum! @matthewjwelsh was first to cross the line in 32:46, followed closely by @a_dumez who pandered to the OCD crowd by running exactly 33:00. Somehow managing to escape the @sophiegraceruns lens, recent recruit @bradleycourtneypinn also improved on his previous best with a 33:50 clocking. To illustrate the depth of the field, Matt's time only placed him 112th... Although a slight admin error did crown him first woman!

A fantastic outing at the Reigate Priory XC Relays immortalised with some hardware🥇🥈
The Belles A team claimed the top step of the podium after a Saron put down the fastest leg of the day to take down Guildford's promising star. With the B team and the C team coming in 4th and 16th, we can rest assured we have the strength in depth to carry us through the winter!
The men just missed out on gold behind Dorking's quartet, but witnessed the renaissance of the legendary Phil Wicks! A silver medal and the promise of a returning superstar was more than enough to put a smile on the Bels!

#tbt to the days of Phillips Idowu, MBE who not only won gold at European and World outdoor and indoor championships, he can also brag a Commonwealth title and a silver medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. His amazing 17.81cm triple jump PB (still the club record to this day) shouldn't distract from a tasty 6.81s 60m record and an equally impressive 10.60s over the 100m dash! Can one of our promising field athletes surpass such a CV one day? Not a doubt in our mind.

A brilliant night celebrating the achievements of our wonderful members at the 2018 Senior Awards Night.

Konstantinos chases down the Highgate athlete in the closing stages of three men's race as TVH nip at his heels in a closely fought to the finish. A solid second place for our lads with a thrilling final run.

Too fast for the camera! @run_for_the_mills brings home the third leg for the B team.
