National Road Relays 2016 Results and race report

The National Road Relays was held at Sutton Park, Birmingham, the same venue as the Midland Road Relays a few weeks earlier. Despite the teams being depleted due to a clash with the Secondary School League race, we had some amazing results.

Despite falling at the start of the race, Elsie ‘the Rocket’ Robinson (U13g) had a stunning run to power round the course in a time of 14:32. Her time put her as the 8th quickest leg nationally in her age group.

Jordan Waine was also 8th quickest in the U17 women age group with her time of 14:05 on the first leg. She handed over to Megan Rowley, whose time of 16:23 was almost 1 ½ minutes quicker than her run at the Midlands. In fact the majority of athletes ran quicker than their Midland times which was extremely pleasing to see.
