Highgate Harrier ‘Under 17’ men were outstanding features in the Southern Cross Country Relay on Saturday at Wormwood Scrubs.
In the three man Under 17 relay, the team came 4th of the 40 odd teams. James Millett was the 2nd fastest out of all the clubs with a time of 10.15 and Terry Fawden’s time of 11.06 placed him sixth fastest overall so, Highgate had two of the fastest six runners in the South for Under 17!. Their third man bringing the team home was Alex Machin Paley who ran round in 11.58. The first team was Windsor Slough & Eton in 33:28 with Highgate 4th in 33:59.

In the Girls races perhaps, Highgate’s best performance was in the Under 13’s where they came 8th with a team of Emma Wiletts, Sasha Fear and Dorothy Brock.

Highgate Harriers, popular Norwegian runner Audun Nortveit, was sixth in the Norwegian cross-country Championships at Bergen on Saturday in 31:21.26. The winner was Norsdat Moen in 30:26.92
Audun Nortveit was the 2nd scorer for his Norwegian club IK Tjalve. That club, therefore, qualified as the top club at cross-country in Norway to run in the European Clubs cross country in February.
Nortveit will run for them in that. As he came sixth in the race, he has an outside chance of being in the Norwegian team for the Nordic Cross-country Championships in Finland on he 8th of November.
If he is not selected for that, he said he would compete for Highgate Harriers in the ‘high quality’, second Metropolitan League race on the same date of the 8th of November.

About the race on Saturday, Audun said “I am well, but not too happy about my performance. I’m in decent shape, but the course was over my least preferred surface, of extreme mud and slow.”

Certainly Stevenage would be a fast course with some downhill stretches which he would go well on. Anyway what ever happens, for the general athletics fan sixth in the National Championships is a good result.

David Bruce won the Oxford Half Marathon at Oxford by over a minute in 71:26 on October 12th.
On the 4th of October he was the fastest in Highgate’s ‘B’ team that came 34th in the National Road relay at Sutton Park . That gives a true indicator as to how strong the club is currently, as he would usually make the ‘A’ team.
Bruce, who was a medical student at Oxford University , when he won the Varsity Cross country match on Wimbledon Common in 2009. He has also run a 9:12.85 for the 3000 steeplechase in 2011.
Parliament Hill track is managed by the City of London and a fee is payable for each use.
Annual season tickets are also available at the ticket office.
