Thank you to all who participated in the relays! We did fantastically! In both turn out and performance on the national stage. A scurry of 39 squirrels in total! :raised_hands:
It is also very pleasing to see squirrels from all groups take part. This was a proper team effort, demonstrating some of that Midweek League spirit that we've missed. :pray:
Many many thanks to all that ran and supported. I had a great time competing as a team and supporting others, as well as watching the results come in. It was great to see everybody's Strava feed lit up with efforts and pictures in vests. :+1:
Fantastic to see some people trying twice in the week - to try and improve their time. Some did improve!
The M35's had two complete teams out, with the A team finishing 14th. Well done guys! But they were backed up by a very solid B team - which is great to see the strength in depth there.
The M45's were equal 7th, it was very tight, with only 20s separated places 3rd to 7th. Equally with a solid B team pulling out some PB/SB times.
The M55’s was also tight. But there were some amazing results in here, that were not present of recent years. So the team placed 7th when they were expecting a podium place. But there was nothing they could have done about the other teams.
The W35’s were a fraction behind Long Eaton, with only 1s between them. But still making the top 70.
Unfortunately, we didn’t make up a W45’s team, which is a shame. But Well done to those who did run.
The W55’s were amazing, and finished in the top 30.

Sorry for the delay in publicising. I did want to give the results some time to settle with the verification checks. But also, I've just felt exhausted in the evenings this week :face_with_thermometer: but had some recovery now...
Thanks John for organising and encouraging us...and well done o. Some amazing results!
Well done all - some very impressive results! Thanks to John for organising us all, and I am particularly grateful to the organisers who were very helpful and kindly allowed me to submit my result manually as I still can't upload via Garmin or Strava.
Actually scored in the teams and wasn't THAT much slower than the rest :smiley:
Nice one Steve! Great performance. Good work :+1:
