Dulwich Runners up to fourth in Surrey League after latest round at Wimbledon Common

Dulwich Runners’ men’s team moved up to fourth place in the Surrey League Division One table following Saturday’s race at Wimbledon Common, writes Jonathan Whittaker.

Max Milarvie produced another stellar performance to secure second place (25:40) to see him lead the individual standings by two points from Guildford & Godalming’s Andy Coley-Maud with one race left.

Ed Chuck is also in the individual podium positions following another strong run – this time 12th (26:22).

Ed Gibson (105) and Ade Russell (162) with HHH’s Alex Gutteridge (453) in pursuit.

James Dazeley’s impressive cross country debut (32nd, 27:09) preceded typically reliable performances from Max Bloor (36th, 27:21), Aaron Wilson (47th, 27:31) and Ben Howe (57th, 27:55) in the upper placings.

Joe Hallsworth (112th, 29:21), James Blackwood (116th, 29:30), a promising debut performance from Dylan Wymer (134th, 29:54) and Ed Gibson (142nd, 30:01) concluded the A-team scoring.

Aaron Wilson (176) battling it out with Hercules’ Richard Mcdowell.

Dulwich expect a close battle with Herne Hill Harriers and Guildford & Godalming in the final race to retain fourth place, and the club’s best-ever finish.

The ladies race followed the same 8km course, with the A team finishing 16th, losing some ground on Reigate and FOT in the battle to remain in Division One next season.

A fast finish from Kay Sheedy saw her home as the club’s first runner (39th, 33:22). Excellent runs from Helen Shannon (77th, 36:09), Katie Smith (95th, 36:49), Rosie Murton (108th, 37:11) and Harriett Roddy (120th, 37:59) completed the A team’s scoring.

Ange Norris (39:38) was first V60 home with a comfortable win over her nearest rival – Guildford & Godalming’s Susanna Harrison – for the age group crown, and now trails her by just one point.
