Taking the lead for the first time in the match after five events, they consolidated their lead during the afternoon and eventually triumphed by 36.5 points over last year's winners Herne Hill Harriers, with Hercules Wimbledon finishing in third place.
Epsom & Ewell Harriers were rarely threatened in the women's match and have now been women's champions for the last eight years [photo (right): Epsom & Ewell Harriers]. The Hampshire Division's representatives Winchester & District repeated last year's result by finishing third behind runners-up Dartford Harriers.
About the league
Hampshire is one of seven divisions of the Southern Counties Veterans AC Track & Field League. It was known as the Hants & Surrey Division until 2016, but was renamed as all member clubs were then based in Hampshire.
The other divisions are:
- Herts & North Middlesex
- Mid London
- South West London
- Sussex (currently operating independently of League)
Each division stages a series of matches, usually on Monday evenings in April, May, June and July, at various venues within its geographic area. The men's and women's champions, plus the runners-up in the Kent Division, then compete against each other in the League Finals which take place in early September.
