Inter-League Cross Country, Tavistock, 13/03/1988
During the winter months this fixture was arranged to enable our Tool League
to compete against a similar league from South Devon. It was run at Tavistock
and is hopefully going to be an annual event. The turnout was abysmal - only
us and Tiverton turned up and even then we only had 10 counters in the senior
event 7 Bideford and 3 Tiverton. Thank you to the people that did turn out
(the proper club runners) even the kids turned out ran well, hung around in
the cold and supported the seniors. Especially Tubby who had a stormer.
Westward Cross Country League, Paignton, 19/03/1988
The last meeting of the Westward League, to those of you who didn't run you
missed a good opportunity to get some good points. Only 16 kept the club flag
flying with Lee Glover and Royston McGahey getting best positions.

running quicker than last year. Well done to Karen Chapman for getting second
lady. There were 120 runners.

Bath Half Marathon, Bath, 20/03/1988
Meanwhile, at Bath, Clem and John ran the Bath half with very creditable times although did I hear someone say the course was short, downhill, and with a strong wind behind! Anyway well done chaps. It must have been a good run because they must have borrowed Tubby's wallet as the beer was really flowing back at the club.
