Chiltern Harriers had a small number of teams competing at the National Cross Country Relays at Barry Hill Park, Mansfield on Saturday.
Conditions at this biggest and best of the autumn relays were good, with a dry and fast course making for fast times. The first leg of each relay is slightly shorter than the others to allow a safe start, and the U13s and U15s both run a 2k lap, so the pace is fast and furious.
Chiltern Harriers youngsters had a superb day at the National Road Relay Championships at Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield on Saturday.
In grey, drizzly conditions four of the five age group A teams came in the top ten with both U13 teams winning silver medals. Frankie Baxter and Thomas Redmond were both in the fastest three lap times in their respective age groups. It was the best set of results that the club has posted in this prestigious early season competition.
Chiltern Harriers young endurance runners got their winter season off to a good start at Crystal Palace on Sunday in the Southern Road Relay Championships.
The highlight were silver medals for the U13 girls team but most age groups A teams finished in the top ten. Conditions were poor with heavy rain and several substantial puddles to negotiate on the fast 3.1k circuit of Crystal Palace Park. The start and finish area was in the Crystal Palace athletics track which made for a good atmosphere.
