The Shugborough Relays were held on Wednesday on the lovely Shugborough Estate. Royal Sutton again excelled running 7 teams – 1 more than last year, with everybody saying that they will be back again next year. We ran
- 1 Ladies Vets 160 team
- 2 Mixed Vets 160 team
- 1 Mens Vets 160 Team
- 2 Mens Vets 200 teams
- 1 Mens Vets 240 teams
All teams excelled with the mixed vets team of Colin McAuley, Val Carter, Andrea Deathridge, and Russell Simpson winning their race in a time of 47 min 23 secs. This put them 11 seconds in front of the second placed team. Colin and Andrea were our fastest male and female runners, with Colin running 11min 05 sec and Andrea 11min 58 sec. The Vets 240 team missed out on 1st place by 57 secs so must try harder next year!
It was pleasing to see runners who had not run in the relays before turning out for us and enjoying the great atmosphere – in particular those from Bunny’s training group.
