National Road Relays 2018

With the atrocious weather conditions on the day, it was the hardy few that turned out for Saffron at the National Road Relays at Sutton Park on the 6th October.

It was extremely disappointing that there were less athletes at the National event than at the Midlands and the drop out of the athletes in the week leading up to the race was much higher than normal.


There were some fabulous results with all but one athlete improving the times they ran at the Midland Road Relays a couple of weeks before.


The highest place team for Saffron AC was the U15G team, whose 26th place saw Elsie Robinson lead the team handing over in 2nd place on the first lap and whose time was the 3rd quickest individual lap time in the age group on the day.
