Our teams produced two very sound performances at the National 6- and 4-Stage Road Relays in Sutton Coldfield today. Our men finished 20th and our women 21st in this very high quality event. With neither team suffering from an obvious weak link, Matt Barnes-Smith and Linzi Snow delivered our fastest runs of the day.
Amongst the young athletes, there were some standout
performances, notably by Liam Blaikie, who recorded the fastest time of the
night in winning the U17M race in 10:15 (nearly a minute faster than his
closest U17M rival); just over 30 seconds down was James Stockings, who won the
U15B race. Our other winner of the
night was Georgina Ferrari in the U15G race, with team mate Holly Bedeau close
behind in 2nd.
