Midland Road Relays

Well done to all that competed in the Midland road Relays photos in the gallery.

Race report:

This was Saffron AC’s first outing at the Midland Road Relays, which was held at Sutton Park, Birmingham on Saturday 19th September. Each team consisted of three runners whose individual leg was just under 2.5 miles. Collectively, the young athletes all gave good accounts of themselves, which resulted in top 5 team placings in two of the age groups.

The U15g team of Rhea Cooper, Emma Richards and Hannah Ord were 4th placed overall and the U17 women’s team of Megan Rowley, Alex West and Jordan Waine were 5th.
