Well done to Phil Atkinson (5th category place), Lee Drummond (6th, masquerading as Alan in the results) and Claire Mumford (18th) - great running! Full results can be seen here.
Birtley fielded some great relay teams at this event, with the senior men (Greg Poulton, Lewis McConnell and Adrian Bailes) coming a close second place in the seniors race, and a "senior" team which included two masters athletes coming a creditable 20th place, but the crowning achievement had to be the masters women, romping home to take the Masters Women's title - congratulations to Lisa Short, Ruth Dadswell and Lorna Graham with a winning time almost a minute faster than their nearest rivals!
Very big shout for Adrian Bailes, fastest athlete overall, and he managed that from the 3rd leg (the next 3 were from the 1st leg).
Well done to everyone who raced on Wednesday - full results can be seen here (Women and Masters) and here (Seniors)
Congratulations to all the Birtley athletes who were selected for this prestigious competition, you were all amazing. Well done to Molly Elliott and Chris Perkins on their respective silver/bronze medals!
