“An excellent result for our ladies team today finishing 10th overall out of 57 complete teams. Special thanks must go to Kate and Andrea both running through illness and injury. Megan ran the 7th fastest long leg of the day in 32:18. Katie ran the 6th fastest short leg of the day in 18:14
both ably supported by Andrea 30th fastest in 20:12 short leg, Kate 39th fastest in 36:39 long leg, Georgia D 122nd fastest in 23:56 short leg and Emily 110th fastest in 23:22 short leg. Thank you all for running  and providing such an excellent result”
