A hot, thrilling and successful day out in the Cotswold Hills for Bristol & West Athletic Club yesterday at the Cotswold Way Relay, a fantastic team relay event running 100 miles from Chipping Campden to Bath.
The ladies proved victorious again for the fourth consecutive year (gathering 4 stage wins and a stage record along the way). The men’s team, whose original line-up was badly hit by injuries in recent weeks, came an amazing second to Cheltenham AC by an agonising 10 minutes after some 12 hours of racing.
For the first time, Bristol & West entered five teams with wonderful performances by a second ladies team, a mixed team and a Vets mixed team (sorry, I don’t have the results for those teams yet).
Team report and (more!) photos to follow but, for now, a photo of some of our amazing runners at the end of the event at Bath Abbey looking hot (and possibly slightly hysterical).
