THAMES Valley Harriers' Chris Smith was unable to repeat his London Championship success of 2008, finishing seventh at Parliament Hill on Saturday.

But there was plenty of promise for the future as two younger members of the TVH contingent finished inside the top 30 over a demanding 10k course.

Smith stayed with the leading bunch, hitting fourth place at one stage, but was unable to maintain the pace and finished in 33 minutes 48 seconds.

Despite labouring over the hilly sections, Mohamud Adaan burst through with a strong final lap and sprint to the line to take 14th place and the under-20 silver medal in a time of 34:45.

Naz Dawit also finished well in 29th place (36:45) and another of TVH's younger runners, Ali Yahye (38:09), crossed the line in 57th, just three places behind Manuel da Silva (37:59).

Steve Norris was the first veteran home for TVH, running strongly to finish in 82nd (39:32), with Matthieu Ribault completing the top 100 in 40:20.

Phil Wetton was next in 110th (40:59), while Richard Bell (45:40) and Peter Hill (45:48) slugged it out further down the field in 204th and 208th respectively.

In the women's race, TVH's Lisa da Silva helped Middlesex to claim the team gold medal as she finished 17th (23:13), while Kate Nunn returned to action by taking 130th place (27:29).
