Old Warwickians

2018 OW Cross Country

Six brave Old Warwickians formed the Warwick School team for the 66th Thames Hare and Hounds Alumni Race over Wimbledon Common mid-December. This five-mile, cross-country race for former pupils of schools across the UK, is always a challenge.

What better way to spend a few hours on a pre-Christmas Saturday afternoon? The course is very tough with its woody terrain, mud, trees to scramble over and puddles to negotiate. The 2018 race was no exception with the addition of rain, wind and near freezing temperatures.

Huge thanks and congratulations to all our competitors.

The 2019 race is scheduled for Saturday 14 December. If you fancy a challenge and the opportunity to run for OWs, please contact We may enter a team of unlimited numbers so the more the muddier and the merrier.

Dave Phillips, Jonathan Hobbs, Duncan Gunn, Martin Garrett, Chris Marshall and Ben Hawkins.
