Northern League Division 4WC Match 2

Leeds Carnegie – Sunday 9th June 2013‏

Martyn and Alastair travelled over to Leeds for the 2nd match of the Northern league division competing in the 5000m.

A blue sky day with high temperatures making the distance race even more tougher – Alastair shoe lace unfortunately came open almost at the start of the race but despite this still achieved a great
performance.

Shortly after the 5k race both Alastair and myself competed in the 4 x 400m relay ! Alastair set off on the first leg complete with baton before handing over to myself – luckily we were supported by James and Joe to correct our poor sprinting speed yet still claiming overall a new club record !!

This is a side of the club that other road / fell / XC specialists should consider competing in as it will undoubtedly will help sharpen and improve your performances.

Thank you Andrew, Trevor et al for the organisation and support on the day – very much enjoyed.
