The weather forecasts had for days been predicting thunderstorms and heavy rain on the day of the SEAA Road Running Relays, but in the end it turned out to be a fine day for three 26.2 RRC teams taking part in this high quality event featuring many of the best runners in the South of England. A little drizzle but nothing that dampened the spirits, or performances.
A fourteen strong contingent descended on the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre to do the burple shirts proud. The three teams that took part were:
Senior Women: 1. Victoria Whelan; 2. Jacqueline Chang; 3. Megan Lewis; 4. Laura Hooke
Senior Men: 1. Ben Chown; 2. Anthony Whelan; 3. James Scanlon; 4. Dmitry Selemir; 5. Tim Bartholomew; 6. Chris Hutchinson
Vet Men: 1. Steve Nicholls; 2.Joe Chang; 3. David Maher; 4. Harry Kim
The cherry on the cake was finishing on top of our local rivals and mob match adversaries The Stragglers in both the Senior Women and Vet Men categories. They didn’t field a Senior Men’s team alas.
