Ekiden Relay

Tony Morley and Sue Potter write:

Today (Sunday) saw the 2017 Ekiden relay event at Woodbridge school where over 200 junior and senior teams race individual stints up to Marathon distance. We fielded five junior and five senior teams so a big thank you to Steve Neaves, team captains and all the junior coaches for their hard work.

In sweltering conditions, all our junior athletes ran really well with two teams winning their categories!  The U11 mixed team was won by Harry Smith, Eloise Morran, Freddie Hartigan and Tess Andrews.  the 12 and over category was won by Reuben Andrews, Lauren West, Peter Lowther and Harry Allcock

And in the senior event, ‘the Foxes’ the ladies team and the Foxes (Jo Andrews, Sarah Macdonald, Jo Cox, Justine Fawcett, Sabrina Norton and Bridget Law) were 3rd in their age category and got a very nice plaque each!

Well done to all of you and everyone who took part today.
