Nonsuch Inter-Church Mob Match (Nov 2016)

Brilliant to see you all, 18 ran for Chiltern, 12 for Good Shepherd, 2 for St Paul’s (bonus runners who joined us on the day), 10 for Holy Trinity Church Wallington, 3 for Emmanuel, 12 for St Patrick’s, 3 for Springfield, 4 for The Salvation Army, 3 for Cheam Baptist Church, 2 for Sutton Vineyard, 6 for Croydon Vineyard, 6 for Selsdon Baptist, 2 for Christian Runners UK & 1 for Christ Church Chelmsford  – 84 runners in total, and from 14 different Churches.


We were spread from position 1 to position 478.

Also as ever we had a great welcome from the volunteer team (thanks to all), a specific briefing just for us, and a nice little mention in the main run briefing.

The handicap system resulted in…

Pos. Church Club Score
1 Good Shepherd 794 – Well done on your first ever win!
2 Chiltern Church Runners 766
3 St Patrick’s Tigers 731
4 Croydon Vineyard 670
5 Holy Trinity Wallington 612
6 Cheam Baptist Church Runners 461
7 St Paul’s 448
8 Christian Runners UK 435
9 Vineyard Sutton 396
10 The Salvation Army 390
11 Springfield Church Springers 379
12 Christ Church Chelmsford 302
13 Selsdon Baptist church Runners 296
14 Emmanuel Church 18

Quite a tight result for the top 3 teams this time – just one more runner could have tipped it.

Well done to all – Croydon Vineyard did really well as a ‘smaller team’ but you are going to need to get some juniors and ladies out Damian if you really want to boost that score!

Also a little appeal – we had 84 runners but only about 55 show fully in the parkrun results – if you run without a club, please please sign up, your Club Captains will help – or I will if you need to register a team. Obviously some of you have pre-existing secular clubs – fair play to you.


Darren Fazackerley once again made the long journey from Chelmsford to join us – lovely to have a 100 Marathon club man amongst our number. Also great to have two Christian Runners UK members Kathy and Matt Lane joining us all the way from Kent.

Also running but not mentioned yet were – too many of you for me to list everyone, but again congratulations to you all, and thanks for coming.

A massive thank you to scorers Emily Hudson & Kerena Ivens, we had no photographer in advance but have been very fortunate to benefit from the photography by Andrew Coppin as on the day he took a few shots, just for himself, and was kind enough to share them – who can be followed in his pictorial running journeys on instagram @andycopps. Results, as ever, by Andy Crossley. Also the churchrunner Technical Director Clive Wickham.

Apologies to anyone I have missed.

We have a couple more photos to enjoy, keep up the training and we will see you at a mob match in 2017 – the next date is tentatively;

National (virtual event) January 14th.
