  1. For some reason I have never done this relay , although I ran the cross country on the same course . Strong ran by all the club members in this Golden Acre Relay especially Joanna H. ran a super race in 24.12 ,also Louise P . did well in 25.33 , not bad Billy R. in a good 22.28 and the senior Colin B. ran in a lovely 23.17. Well done to everybody .

  2. Well done to all that entered, I always find this a tough relay. Special mention for Louise as she was talked into this at the last minute and I believe it’s her first team event.
