Midland Road Relays Race Report

Midland Road Relays  Sutton Park 25th September 2021

Well, done to all the athletes that competed at the Midland Road Relays in Sutton Park 25th September 2021.  In total we had 39 athletes competing across U13 to Seniors.  A fantastic effort by all competing and putting on the RSCAC vest, especially those competing at the event for the first time.

The Junior athletes formed teams of 3, running over 3.88 Km across the a very challenging course which includes the infamous 3 stage hill.   

Senior teams formed teams of 4 for the women over 4.33 km and teams of 6 for the men’s competition running 5.88 km.

Some notable performances included Noah Homer (U13 boys), although part of an incomplete team he was 2nd fastest across all stages of the relay with a time of 13 minutes 23 seconds.  The Under 17 girls narrowly missed out on a bronze medal by just 5 seconds finishing in 5th place overall, well done to Bethan Homer (in 14:35  – 6th fastest overall on the day), Sian Duval and Beatrix Whistance.

A great performance also by Ollie Harradence in the Senior Men’s team  who returned back in 12th place in the 1st leg in a fantastic time of 18:28.

It was also great to see 2 teams in the Senior Women’s event. Our thoughts are with Roy Humpherson’s family, I am sure Roy would have been there proudly shouting on all the teams.
