The Woodland Relays

The Woodland Relays

We entered two ladies teams in the Woodland Relay Series of races last Wednesday evening at Escot Park.

The event organised by Honiton Running Club attracted 47 teams in total. Teams of three were divided into all male, all female, mixed and juniors.
Each member runs the same 1.6 mile circuit with a hill climb towards the end but that gave a nice downhill sprint to the changeover and finish.

I have learnt that at the start our two captains were so engrossed in discussing tactics (or that was what I was told) that the rest of the field had set off before they realised it. However all members enjoyed the evening and the Mighty Green was worn and the Club was shown supporting another event.

Final results have not yet been published but it is highly unlikely that we will be in the top three unless there are a mass of disqualifications, but one thing for sure as you can see from the photo we had the two most glamorous teams. Well done Ladies.

Individual Times:

Becky Robson 14:36, Jo Earlam 13:50, Sue Collman 13:55. Total 42:21
