Cabbage Patch 10M (26 Sep 1999)

We had a great turnout at a beautiful end-of-summer

Cabbage Patch 10M (17 Oct 2004)

Extract from Athletics Weekly's race report:-

"The women's race was one of the best in the 23 years they have been racing here. Four were well inside the hour with each of the quartet in with a chance of victory and no one, not least the runners themselves, could predict the winner until the very late stages.

For most of the contest Alison Fletcher had the upper hand. She had seen off Barbara Yff's (Serpentine) early challenge and was still in front with less than a mile remaining.

There was Louise Watson, who had moved from fourth to second after 7 miles and began closing on the long-time leader. Neither could Shona Crombie-Hicks be discounted. But Yff still had aces to play. First she passed Watson, then, as the finish loomed took Fletcher as well and held on in spite of the Dulwich veteran's refusal to throw in the towel. There were just 6 seconds between them on the line.

Yff, the Middlesex 10km and SEAA inter-counties cross country champion and one of a staggering 130 entrants from Serpentine, improved her PB by more than 2 minutes to 57:50. The other three all had reason to be satisfied. Fletcher now tops the UK W40 rankings by more than 2 minutes thanks to one of her best-ever performances. Watson improved on her Great South Run time, even though the Twickenham course was harder and Crombie-Hicks also ran a personal best."

Many congratulations to Barbara and also to Sue Lambert who won the W60 age group and to Sarah Newton who was second W45.

The Men's Club Champion is Ben Paviour in a time just over 55 mins, followed by Simon Barrett and David McGregor
