Summer Solstice Relays 2017

This was a new event to the Hillingdon AC fixture list and it proved popular.

A chance to team up with family or club friends saw 56 individuals carry 14 batons around Mad Bess Woods. “I know a great route through the woods” is Nigel Ealand’s clubhouse nickname and he certainly lived up to it.

The mile loop was certainly challenging, starting with a gentle climb up to the first corner. The event bought the young, not so young and all ages in between out into the fresh air for some friendly competition.

The Summer Solstice Relay 2017 title was won by Rob “Mr Consistency” Thompson who completed all four laps himself in 05:36, 05:47, 05:50 and 05:51.

Once everyone had successfully got their batons round (there was only a few drops but we won’t tell Nigel) all headed back for a fabulous evening BBQ and music by DJ Steve Thompson, conga anyone?

Well done to all who took part, special mentions go to:

Richard Mann who completed the fastest lap with 05:17

Anna Harwood for completing the fastest female lap with 06:20

Patrick Hyde fastest junior lap with 06:40

Thanks to Nigel who organised the event and all the volunteers who helped at the clubhouse or marshalled the course.
