Women's Team 13th at Midland Road Relays

Last Saturday marked the weekend of the Midland Road Relays 2015, this year despite a number of injuries and illness we still managed to get one team out and finish 13thof 52 teams!

After a few changes of the course, and setting up the tent in blustery conditions Jen Dale (pictured) took us out with a storming run of 19:37. This set us up well in 19th place, and was followed by Becky Hair in a time of 20:02 – with a sprint finish! The course was certainly hillier than first anticipated, but with great team support in the final straight it was really motivating! Sam Rose brought us up another few places in a time of 20:53, and Ellie Bishop gave a cracking run in 21:05. Marie Voice and Eloise Lee bought us home in great times of 20:06 & 20:41, overtaking another few ladies to bring us up to 13th place.

It was a brilliant day, despite the weather, and it was great to get one team out! Hopefully next year we can get some more people on board and get our well deserved top 10 finish! Now, onto the National Relays in April where we should get a team out!
