After much fun sorting the teams out, we took 27 runners to the South Yorkshire Road Relay Championships. Four men’s teams comprising two senior and two V40 teams, Three ladies teams comprising a F45, a F35 and a senior ladies team and One M60 team (which was unfortunately incomplete due to illness). Several of our runners had not competed in this sort of event before so well done for having a go. Everyone was in the correct place at the correct time 😊
The course starts and finishes at Low Bradfield, the first half mile is a climb, then its down hill or flat to about 2 miles. The hill between 2 and 2.75 miles is very tough to run up, following this is a cracking descent of 0.5 miles and a flat finish taking us to 3.5 miles.
Our senior men’s team finished 12th overall and our V40 team chased as hard as they could, finishing in 17th place (4th V40 team).
The following runners made it into the fastest 50, George Rowland 35th, Peter Badger 42nd and James Osborne 49th.
This is a very inclusive event, give it a go next year. Well done everyone.
