Golden Acre Relay
This is a 3 x 2.75-mile relay, over an undulating course of fields and pathways within Golden Acre Park. It was a great turnout for this year’s event. 151 teams took part.
A massive THANKS and well done to all the regulars and newcomers, those who wanted to take part but were unable to for various reasons, those who stood in at the last minute, as well as Alan Squire for the excellent team organisation.
Everyone did brilliantly and remember it doesn’t matter if you’re first or last, the main thing is to enjoy the experience and to run as part of a team.
Congratulations to the Men’s Open Team who finished 2nd overall (Ciaran Forde, Neal Edmondson & Sam Fisher). The Men’s Vets Team finished 9th – Neil Burton, Steve Raby & Paul Gidlow. Men’s Vets Team K finished 21st – Alan Squire, Lee Greenhalgh & Mark Smith. Ladies Open Team finished 25th – Aisling Wall, Lindsey Clegg & Aiveen Smith.
A special mention for the three ABG members who took part in their first relay at Golden Acre – Jacqueline Stack, Joanna Mingham and Nikita Watson. Top effort ladies!
