Race Relay Time! We have not had one of these for a while and what a weekend to do a race relay on. Hareward Relay races through the fens in Peterborough to celebrate its 25th anniversary. The race route is along a route an Anglo-Saxon Legend used...once upon a time....only Hareward himself *see viking in the picture!
We had 2 teams take part in the event. Darren, James and Phillip made up team one along with Kate, Amy, Kirsty and Sian....running her first race in the club vest!
Its a 40 mile relay race with checkpoints along the route. Both teams ran excellent races. The route is extremely tough off road so its such a fantastic achievement for both teams.
More results to follow...but what we know so far is the boys finished 28 out of 83 teams which is great especially with an average age of 58! And the Ladies, did absolutely awesome!!
