More relay titles for SN teams
Victories at Harvester Trophy and SE Relays
The SN ladies finally won the Womens trophy at the Harvester, and SN teams finished first and second in the Open class at SE Relays.
After several years of coming close, and winning the handicap class on a few occasions, the SN Starlets team finally won the Womens Open class outright at Tilgate Park in June. After good night legs from Sue Bett and Sarah Rollins, Martha Paton ran through daybreak, and Carol Lovegrove and Mel Slade finished it off in the early morning sunshine.
The woodland camping was an interesting experience, but the SN tent village had a great feel to it as runners came and went. We had four teams in the event, so there was always something happening in the changeover area, which was well equipped with drinks-making facilities, cake supplies and a big screen link to the radio controls to give pre-warning of inbound runners. Saturday night in Crawley never felt so good!
The following weekend saw four SN teams competing in the SE Relays at Holmbush near Horsham. We scooped first and second places in the Open class with the mixed team of Thomas, Frida and Sarah just beating the mens team of Frank, Alan and Laurence. A nice way to round off the spring relay season.
Thank you to everyone who ran for SN teams in the last few months.
