Relay Results 2007
24/03/07 Warwickshire Road Relays
The Road Relay season got underway with the Warwickshire Championships at Sutton Park on Saturday 24th. March.
The men entered three teams and the ladies just the one with reserve Janine Thomas being recruited (with Refs. approval) into a mixed team from other clubs.
The selection of the men’s teams posed a problem for Team Manager Andy Rea who understandably selected Paul Bingham (recent calf problems) and young Lee Taylor (first experience of these relays) for the ‘B’ team. Both ran well (particularly young Lee) and recorded the joint second fastest time for the club.
Consequently our ‘A’ & ‘B teams finished less than 2 mins. apart with our ‘C’ team not too far behind.
The ladies ran much to current form with Theresa Woolley recording a very fast time on the first leg (13th. fastest of the day) followed by Mary Williams and Marilyn Maidment. Janine Thomas ran the last leg for the mixed team and finished before us!
The men’s race was won by Tipton Harriers, followed by Coventry Godiva & Solihull & Small Heath. The Ladies race was won by Solihull & Small Heath.
