Riverside Relay results


Good results on a very cold, wintery day in Beckenham. We had 3 teams entered and they all finished within 90 seconds of each other so the handicappers did a great job. The Senior Mens 'A' team took the days fastest overall time with 4 of them in the 8 fastest overall times. Janine and Alex also featured in the top 6 overall winners time and we had several runners in the 20 minute range in all age groups so that will make the selectors job that much harder for the coming events.
