Tuesday 23rd May saw the start of the relay season on a lovely evening down on the Folkestone seafront. There was a great turnout for both the men’s and the women’s events. The women’s vet 35 A and B teams made a good start on defending their current titles finishing top of the standings. There were some lightning performances on the slightly shortened route along the promenade including Simon Jones in 12.54 and Alex Horsley in 14.09 for the men and Nicola Charlton for the ladies in 16.09. Also in the ladies races new member Hannah Pilbeam and Fiona Tester both recorded quick times of 16.36.
The second race at Minnis Bay on 30th May came along on another warm and sunny evening. There was a good turnout for both the men and women with some stand out performances from Sian Smith-Keary, 15.44, and Caroline Wetherill in 15.40 and for the men Mark Peacock in 13.30 and Jethro Kimber in 14.13
After the second round of the series the ladies Vet 35 A and B teams are still top along with the Men’s Vet 45 and the men’s vet 60 A and B teams.
Well done to all those who have run over the two races. Let’s hope we can keep up the momentum, and the turnout, for the upcoming events.
