What goes on at the relays, stays at the relays; however…
Leeds were crowned as the Northern 12 Stage Road relay champions for 2014, in a time of 4 hrs 22 mins 29 seconds. In the provisional results available, Otley finished in our highest ever position in 20th in a total time of 4:56:02 for the 6 long (9k) & 6 short (5k) race.
The undulating Heaton Park, Manchester, a strong wind together with the quality of the runners provided a testing race. As you can see from the photo thanks to captain Liam for providing shelter and refreshments throughout the day.
Fastest time of the day for the long legs was National Cross Country champ. Steve Vernon, Stockport 27:20 & Nick McCormick of Morpeth was the fastest on the short leg in 14.16. See full men’s results here and report on the North of England AA website here.
