RSCAC had another successful outing at this year’s Shugborough Relays, with 8 teams entered, and 32 runners taking part!

All this thanks to the organisational brilliance of Roy Humpherson.Image

On a fast 2 miles course, two of the fastest legs came from Ollie Harradence (10.38), and Rob Andrew (10.57).

After the first leg, Ollie’s team “Not So Old“, was actually in the overall race lead of the Men Vet 160 Years category.
This was until Russell Simpson (11.26) ran a great second leg for the other RSC team “Nearly Vets“, gaining 4 places to bring the team into the overall club lead, a position which they retained and secured through Fred Tremblay (11.01) and Tony Hinchley (12.09), who anchored the team home in 4th place out of 36 team. “Not So Old” finishing 6th overall.

The “Old Speedsters” team whose 4 members aggregated a respectable 201 years, finished in a superb 3rd place in the Men’s Ultra Vets 200 Years category. The team was formed of Rob Andrew (10.57) who ran the second fastest leg on the day, John Fletcher (13.32), Colin McAuley (11.41) and Steve Marklew (11.41).

There were also great performances from Paul Davey (11.06) and Vici Richardson, both hitting a 2 miles PB, as part of the “Rose Between Thorns” mixed team.

ImageIn the “Men’s Open” category, the “Young Pretenders” team formed of Dave Long (11.48), Paul Terleski, Chris Taylor (11.35), and Mark Rickards (12.01), finished 13th out of 42, with Paul Terleski running a very fast second leg in 11.18, gaining 7 places in the process.

In the Ladies Vets 160 Years Category, Bunny will be pleased to know that strong runs from Katherine Lewis (15.33), Sarah Smewin (19.38), Carol Woodfield (16.40) and Lyn Ellis Taylor (17’55), saw the team “Bunny’s Angels” finish 14th out of 31 teams.

Apologies for all those who ran and didn’t get a mention (there was a lot of us, and this is only the produce of my afternoon’s tea break at work). You can always go and indulge yourself on RacePhotos website here.

Full club results can be found here, and the overall results there.

The relays form part of the RSCAC Grand Prix Competition whose latest standings will be published soon.

See you all next year.
