Fairlands Valley Spartans Relays

The club entered three teams for the summer relays as part of the Herts County championships. We didn’t come away with bling but it was enjoyable event with great racing from Watty teams.

 

Quote from Team Manager.

Well done to all who beat the traffic and competed in a really good county relay race yesterday evening.

Last minute team changes saw us complete three Herts county teams. We didn’t quite make the podium, but finished a very creditable 4th in the Lady Vets, 4th in the Male Seniors (including several vets) and 10th in the Male Vets (including several super vets).

Thanks to all who turned out for a very enjoyable evening.
Cheers,
Matt.
