Ashford Relay Report

Four teams turned out in Ashford and true to 2016 ‘summer’ relays we were given a thunderstorm. On arrival the weather was fine but as the event started, rumbles could be heard in the distance. As the third leg runners went out the heavens opened and the fourth leg runners got a good drenching.

Our juniors fronted a fantastic team and finished in 1st position for the second event in a row and are currently sitting 1st place overall. Well done Henry Swandale, Hughie Coleman and Alex Kavanagh.

The ladies put out what is becoming a very consistent V35 team in the form of Gen Case, Sandra Hampton and Julia Hermitage. They have finished a steady 2nd at all events this year and are sitting 2nd place overall. Well done girls.

Forever steady are our men’s V60 winning this event and sitting 3rd overall. Well done Steve Jones, Glyn Jenkins, Dave Winch and Terry Brightwell.

A senior men’s team has gone out at all events this year but there is some stiff competition in this age group and we have not been faring so well. Well done to Richard Allan, Matt Jones and Richard Purton. An extra well done to Barry Lee. Not only was he our quickest, but it was his first race with the club. Well done Barry.

Thank you to all who attended in what was again nasty weather.

Full results available here.

The next event is at Samphire Hoe, Dover on 21st June. If you would like to run please let the captain’s know at club runs or via e-mail or Facebook.
