National 12 Stage Road Relays

A fantastic team performance at the National 12 Stage Road Relays saw Hillingdon AC record their highest finish in this event for at least 20 years (this is also as far back as I can search on the internet) as the team finished 31st out of 65 complete teams from a restricted entry of 75 teams that qualified for this event via their regional championships, reports Team Manager Paul Leppard.

With a number of very strong runs from various members of the team this was an excellent way to finish the 2018/2019 road and cross country season although disappointingly, I believe our actual finishing position should have been recorded even higher at 29th as the finishing positions of the 12th leg runners for Leeds City B team and Victoria Park Harriers did not tally with the positions observed on the road. I did query the provisional results on this basis but was told that the officials and judges recording sheets had been checked and that they were satisfied that the results are correct and so unless I can find video or photographic evidence, 31st it is.

Regardless of any potential recording error, to finish so high up in a National final is still an excellent result and so congratulations to all involved.
