For their final fixture Kent AC women made the short journey across London to Richmond Park –  a venue that is many peoples favourite for cross country running. While the conditions weren’t quite as bad as they had encountered at Stanmer Park for the Southerns, they were still pretty miserable. Constant rain had made the normally dry Richmond Park a good deal more slippery than usual. However, the actual course, which I believe was different from the one normally used, met with largely positive approval.

Although some way below full strength, the team was considerably bolstered by several who weren’t able to join the select band who had made the trip to Brighton for the Southerns. As is usually the case, the Surrey Division I boasted a very competitive field, containing a host of quality runners. Our first runner, continuing her excellent season, was Katie Rowland. Katie was 26th – just a few places down on former GB marathon international, Marie Yamauchi. Alright, she may not be training like she did in her heyday, but Yamuauchi is still a class runner. For Katie to be so close to the ex- international would seem to demonstrate the progress she’s made.  Jen Smith (36th) had another really strong run, as did Catherine (43rd), who had led the team so well in the difficult conditions at Brighton. Behind Catherine, perhaps even doing well to finish was Isabel Bradley (46th). Just like Alex Yee the previous week, Isabel received a nasty spike wound when tripped during the race. Clearly, being a Kent AC runner, she’s made of tough stuff!

Eliza Grant (62nd) just got the better of Victoria Buck(68th) for the coveted last scoring place in the team. Victoria consoled herself with a trek over Wimbledon Common with a few other intrepid souls to see the men’s race.

The results on the site show that there were a number of other runs that deserved praise. Mention must go to Zoe Gaffen who was in the top five of her age group over the series of races. Zoe, of course, is a long- standing Kent AC member. In fact, she was running for the club long before we had anything resembling a women’s team.

So this season we really consolidated our position in the top division – and commendably we did so when we were missing some of our top performers. If the missing runners can be restored to full fitness, then next season we could make a real impact.
