SEAA Road Relays, Aldershot, 22 September 2013

A poor turnout at the South of England Road Relays saw Hillingdon AC finish down the results in both the Veteran and Senior Men’s competitions reports Paul Leppard. With many athletes who would normally be pushing for a place in the A teams unavailable to compete, the Senior Men’s team recorded their worst performance at these championships since at least 2002, finishing in 50th place out of 80 teams, 30 places down on last year’s finishing position. The Vet 40 Mens team finished 19th out of 25 teams, the Vet 50 team 16th out of 17 teams, whilst Alan Butler and John Bignell ran the first two legs of an incomplete Vet 40 B team.
