OSH v RSSH v Staff, 26 November 2011

Monday 28 November 2011

The annual race against the RSSH and Staff proved to be a much more closely contested event than last year. A welcome return by our captain, Oli Mott, saw him lead the 13 OSH runners home in a very creditable 2nd place, with a fast time of 19 mins 39 seconds for the 3.5 mile course.

Other scoring runners were Kris Blake in 5th, Ed Hector 9th, Ben Hepplethwaite 10th, Toby Jones 15th and Adam Booth 17th. In the team result the RSSH won with 47 points, the OSH were second with 58 points and the Staff third with 105 points. Ian Howarth (Staff), killed in 19 min 17 seconds followed by Oli Mott, with the Huntsman, George Mallett, third in 19.46. Conditions were considerably better than last year when sub zero temperatures and a crisp layer of snow challenged the field.

Tea was taken in the Hunt gym, where we were surrounded by an impressive collection of Hunt memorabilia – and not tempted by the Powerjog machines lined up against the end wall. This was followed by the AGM in the Moser Library and a splendid dinner in Kingsland House where the Huntsman and Junior Whip were our guests.
The photographs show the OSH team before the start, the start of the race, Oli Mott (RB 1998-03) after finishing second and the scene at the end of the race. Full results follow below.
