Bob Lynch reports:
"Great time at Sutton Park today, the weather was lovely and the ladies team ran really well to get 5th place against some top teams. The picture show all the team except Sue Davies - sorry Sue.
The A team was Amie and Lynne on the 5.4 mile legs and Sally, Katie Dolan and Cath H on the 3 mile ones. Amie and Lynne came in pretty close time-wise in 32.41 and 32.50 respectively. For the short legs, Sally and Sue Davies were very close too at 19.57 and 20.01. Both Cath and Katie were back after lay-offs and ran with real courage to get 21.58 and 21.32. Tipton's placing chopped and changed between 4th and 5th during the race but finally, Stroud edged us out of fourth place into fifth. Heads held high - the Midlands for this race covers a huge area and amongst local teams we got third place.
We had half a B team made up of Penny and Katie Briggs on the long legs and Sophie on the 3 miler. Penny got a pleasing 38.29 and Katie 45.38 (which compares well with her 5 mile debut a couple of weeks back). Sophie unfortunately started ok but got a stitch so did well to achieve 22.42.
National version of these relays: same place in two weeks time, 8th April."
