The Bostelmann Run was a poignant affair this year given the recent passing of Michael Bostelmann (A 61-66). Both his sons David (A 94-99) and Richard Bostelmann (A 92-97) ran for the OB Runners alongside Adam Robinson (G 11-16) who brought together the team as Secretary of the Club. Former Secretary Tony Henderson (E 79-84) made a lovely tribute to Michael after the run outside Stunt Pavilion recognising his great importance and passion for College Cross-Country running and his commitment to the Hare and Hounds Alumni Club and Race on Wimbledon Common.

In addition to the above the alumni team saw a return of regular runners Dean Makar (C 84-86), Jon Salmon (B 73-78), Mike Gush (B 62-67) and Richard Pollock (H 84-89) in addition to new team members Adam Reed (H 97-02), Matt Green-Armytage (E 91-96) and Simon Smedley (C97-00) who made their debut on the very muddy course. It was a close competition with scores from the first eight runners counting, giving the College a winning total of 62 versus the Alumni score of 75. A well-deserved team effort and a proud moment for Team Captain, Blake (G) and other College team members Elliot (A), Peter (C), Peter (H), Justus (E), Luke (H), Enoch (D) and Theo (H).
