News: December 2023

Wednesday 20th December 2023

It is with immense sadness that we have learnt of the death of Peter Lee. Peter was well known for officiating at all levels for decades and was a familiar figure at school, county and club events. His knowledge about the sport was invaluable and he will be greatly missed.

Our thoughts go to Janet and his family at this time.

Peter's funeral will take place in Letchworth on January 10th. Full details can be found at

I hope that everyone has warmed up by now! There was a period in the day where it was really quite beautiful, the heavy frost everywhere and the sun, not warming you up, but peaking through a patch of blue sky….but that was about halfway through the men’s race, so not many got to experience that! Just seeing where you were going because of the fog was a challenge to the earlier starters, certainly for the spectators anyway, and yes that was ice in the standing water / puddles on the course!

It very much looked like the experience of last month’s race proved beneficial to our athletes. Their grit, determination and efforts go without saying (how impressive), but most seemed to be much happier with their own individual performances today which was brilliant. I think that anyone who got round deserves a medal, really well done.

Please see see the results page for a superb set of results once again. It is also notable how good our turnout is as a club, with far more runners at this stage of the season than for a very long time.

Final thanks need to go to those particularly cold volunteer marshals, who did the business at the furthest away point on the course. We really couldn’t have done it without you (and I am not even joking, some of us go to the Chiltern League AGM!!!)
