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

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.
