Sunday 10th June – Bradford Millennium Way Relay

Report from team captain Sarah Fuller :

A massive thanks and well done to all the ladies who ran in the Bradford Millennium Way Relay organised by Saltaire Striders.

On some legs times were a lot slower than last year due to conditions underfoot but everyone put in some great performances. We finished as the fifth ladies team (out of ten) and 39th overall out of 50 teams!

Pange and Nikki, Eleanor and Becky and Caron and I all finished in a similar position in the overall results (we think!) for our respective legs so at least we were a consistent team!

A special thank you to Suzy for stepping in at the eleventh hour to replace an injured Tamara and also to Andrew for the taxi service and support on the last two legs!

  1. Our leg had 1500ft+ climbing! and it sure felt like it (that climb up to the moor was a beast)! Seriously though this was a great event and well organised, lots of local running clubs had 3 or 4 teams in so sure we can get at least 2 next year!
