For England

Congratulations to club juniors Harrison McCartney M14, Julie Emmerson W16 and Matt Elkington M18, who have been selected to represent England.

They will compete in the Ward Junior Home International event which takes place in Dorking, Surrey on October 13 and 14 against Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The two-day annual Caddihoe Chase event took place this year on the Longleat Estate near Warminster in Wiltshire. Several OD club members enjoyed the hilly terrain and mixed woodlands and the chasing start on the second day when competitors went out in timed order, with the fastest going out first.

On the first day Andy Simpson M35 came in third in 1.07.44mins and Alan Segar M35 6th in 1.21.14mins on the Brown 8.4k course and both maintained the same overall position, having completed the shorter 4.8k second day in 28.46mins and 37.10mins respectively.

On day one on the Short Blue 7.5k course Toni O’Donovan W21 was the leading girl in 1.11.02mins and was second best girl on the second day on the 4.55k course in 31.55mins. Roger Hailey M75 put in a splendid performance coming 1st on Day 1 on the Short Green 3.6k course in 52.35mins and after day two was awarded second overall place.
