The weather was bright and dry with virtually no mud, even in those conditions the course at Parliament Hill would still be one of the hardest tests of cross country running of any course in the country.

Individually we had 2 winners, firstly GIANLEO STUBBS in the Under 15 Boys who won by a clear 10 seconds, then NICOLE MCGOVERN running for the London Borough of Hillingdon had a runaway win by some 34 seconds. We also had 2 runners-up, firstly POSIE SHAW in the Under 13 Girls was just headed by a small margin of 2 seconds, the in the Under 17 Men’s race ABDIRAHIM HAMUD also running for the London Borough of Hillingdon, finished 2nd by a margin of 16 seconds.

NORTH WEST LONDON LEAGUE RESULTS FROM 2009 TO 2022 –Link to the NWLL website which has the results from 2009 to 2022 – http://www.british-athletics.co.uk/nwll/
LIVERPOOL CROSS CHALLENGE AND EUROPEAN TRIALS, WHO, WHAT AND WHEN – The following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently.
On 12 December, the best cross-country runners in Europe will descend on the Sport Ireland Campus on the outskirts of Dublin for the European Championships. The 27th edition of the event was due to be staged in the Irish capital last year but was postponed due to the pandemic, which means there has been a two-year gap since the championships were last held. Back then – in Lisbon in 2019 – Great Britain won all of the senior and under-20 team titles plus the mixed relay gold. Traditionally, the GB squad is the strongest at the event and the selection trials for next month’s championships take place in Liverpool’s Sefton Park this Saturday 27 November. Since the Euro Cross began in 1994, Britain has won more than twice as many medals as any other country and more than three times as many gold medals.
The Course – Sefton Park features rolling grassland with no major hills but it can become boggy in parts if the weather is wet. The Euro Trials has been staged at the venue for a number of years so many athletes will be familiar with it. A popular course generally, it also staged the New Balance English Schools Championships in March last year, which was arguably the last big domestic athletics event to take place before the coronavirus pandemic caused widespread event cancellations and the first nationwide lockdown.
Women’s Contenders – JESSICA JUDD, CHARLOTTA ARTER and ABBIE DONNELLY led Britain to team gold two years ago in Lisbon and they are all entered to race in this weekend’s trials again. JUDD led the team home that day in sixth place and she has enjoyed a good 2021 with, among other things, 5000m and 10,000m appearances at the Tokyo Olympics. ARTER won the Cross Challenge event in Cardiff last month and will be joined in Liverpool by training partner and 2019 Euro Cross team-mate JENNY NESBITT, who has also shown good form this winter so far. DONNELLY, meanwhile, looked in great form at the Saucony English Cross County Relays in Mansfield at the start of this month. KATE AVERY is another member of the 2019 team who is in the trials entries this weekend. At her best she won individual silver and team gold at both the 2014 and 2015 Euro Cross events and is working back to full fitness following injury problems. JESS GIBBON, winner of the Cross Challenge meeting in Milton Keynes recently, is another obvious contender.
Men’s Contenders – ANDY BUTCHART led the GB men’s team to gold two years ago in Lisbon and the Olympic 5000m finalist heads the entries for the trials this weekend. JONNY MELLOR, better known these days as a marathon man, is returning to the country this winter for the first time in a few years and certainly has the class to make an impact. Then there is the versatile Cardiff runner JAKE SMITH, English National champion CALUM JOHNSON, in-form OMAR KADAR, Southampton brothers MAHAMED and ZAK MAHAMED, plus talents like TOM KEENE, TOM MORTIMER, SAM CHARLTON, SAM DICKENSON, ALFIE MANTHORPE, SOL SWEENEY and LIAM DEE.
Mixed Relay – A trial for the mixed relay at the European Championships will be held for the first time with entries such as Olympic 800m finalist ALEX BELL, plus European indoor 1500m silver medallist HOLLY ARCHER, ELLIE BAKER, JAMES MCMURRAY, GEORGE MILLS, ISSY BOFFEY, HANNAH NUTTALL. Short-course cross-country trials for British teams have been held in the past but for the World not European cross-county championships. HELEN CLITHEROE and STEVE VERNON – both of whom are now leading coaches – each won the event several times at the turn of the millennium when there was the need to select a squad for the World Cross. Even KELLY HOLMES once ran the short-course trial before going on to make the Olympic podium. Now short-course trial races – which kick off the programme at 10.30am on Saturday – have been resurrected to pick two men and two women to run the 4x1500m in Dublin next month. Britain will be defending the title too after BELL, MCMURRAY, SARAH MCDONALD and JONNY DAVIES combined to take the title two years ago.
Under-20 Contenders- MEGAN KEITH has been in great form this autumn and is one of the stand-out names in the under-20 line-ups. She was 27th at the 2019 Euro Cross in Lisbon and, two years older, will be hoping to improve on that in Dublin next month. The junior entries also include multiple national champion BEA WOOD and CHARLOTTE ALEXANDER plus two of the track stars of the summer, KANE ELLIOTT and HENRY MCLUCKIE, whereas recent Milton Keynes winner HAMISH ARMITT, OSIAN PERRIN and ETHAN HUSSEY add to the quality.

CAN YOU HELP PLEASE– During the period when all competitions are suspended, I will do my upmost in keeping the Newsletter information and other content going.
I would welcome any contributions From Yourselves, any impending marriages, or additions to the family, any running or competing incidents, also past warm weather training/holidays (No Club 24 please). Currently the response has been excellent, but if you have anything that could make it into next week’s Newsletter – please email me.
PHOTOGRAPH’S – From time to time we have photographs of our members taken at meetings or presentations which we would like to use both on the website or incorporated within our report to our local newspaper. Can you please let me know if you do NOT want your photograph to be published. Also, I would appreciate if you could send me any photographs, which I can then publish on the website and newsletter.
FACEBOOK – Photographs can be found on the SBH page.
CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION – Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.
On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.
