Saturday also saw the annual signal relays at Hetton-le-Hole, a 2.22m per runner event around the undulating park with teams of 4 and 6 (women/men) competing for podium places. As always the standard of athlete at this event was extremely high but was great to see all our athletes giving it their all. India Pentland started the teams off with a solo leg and was high up the field following her 13.02 leg in slightly windy conditions on the day. The Mens A team finished a very respectable 13th, team being made up of Dan Richardson, James Largey, James Carberry, Dylan Wilson, Chris Fothergill, and Paul Allan. The B team finished 37th from the 61 teams with Andrew Buckley, Ben Potter, Paul Cook, Wes Tarn, Iain Girard and Kevin Wilson. Hopefully next year we will see a bigger turnout from the club for such a good event.
