The B&W over 40’s team won the blue riband event of the British Masters Relay last Saturday for the 4th consecutive time. Jerry Hogan stepped in late on to replace Clive Bromhall who was ill. It was close at first, but Mick O’Doherty on the fourth leg with a cracking 15.01 timing took the team into the lead, and we ran out winners by over 5 min in the end.
Jerry Hogan 16.40, Alex Woods 15.11, John Duncan 16.26, Mick O’Doherty 15.01, Andrew Harrison 15.47, Martin Hula 15.43, Phil Parry 15.12, and the glory leg Dan Moore 15.28.
Amazingly Phil won the Pensford 10K next day in 32.59 followed by Mick 33.24, a B&W runner was 6th as the B&W AC won the team race with 9 points. Claire Hallisey won the womens race in 36.20, with Sian Monahan 2nd 39.24, and Lisa Newing completing the winning B&W AC team in 41.05. Lisa has been busy coming 3rd in the Berkley 10K (on 12th May) in 40.01 to Heidi North who won in 38.37.
In the Oxford 10K, Amy Stiles-Chalk won in 35.46
