Athletics print. Hare and Hounds cross-country running.

Thames Hare and Hounds is the oldest adult cross-country running club in the world. Based on the Roehampton end of Wimbledon Common, adjacent to Richmond Park. Most of its runners are from south-west London.  Probably the best-known though is the Cambridge University Hare and Hounds. In Queensland, just north of Brisbane in Australia, one of the best cross-country runs is the Glasshouse Trail Series which begins with Hare and Hounds and finishes in the Woodford Pool!
