ISLEWORTH'S Ian May had his best run to date in the Apex Sports Chiltern Cross Country League on Saturday.
May led a depleted Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow AC senior men's team home in fifth place, but they went on to finish a disappointing 12th.
However, there were better performances from the younger lads, with the U17 men coming second thanks to top 10 finishes from Nathan Ditton (fifth), Alex Goodall (eighth) and newcomer Khalad Al Abraidy (10th).
The U15 men also had three top 10 finishes, with Ricky Harvie in second, followed closely by Callum Todd in third, and Ben Bradley not far off in eighth. But it was only good enough for third overall.
Gus Cockle came second and George Cathercole eighth as the U13 boys came second, while an U11 boys side, with many runners having their first taste of club competition, finished eighth.
Best of the senior ladies, who came fifth, was former international Marina Stedman's 10th place, while Maryse Haynes crossed the line in eighth and Naomi Barbour 10th as the U17 ladies finished third.
The U15 girls came sixth, but there were some excellent second place finishes for the U13 and U11 girls.
Returning from illness, Becky Croft led the U13s home in third, while the fast-improving Eloise Milbourne was 10th.
Nine-year-old Eugenie Cockle led the charge for the U11s, coming third, while Alex Barbour was hot on her heels in fifth.
