|Article:||5 HRR women represented the club at this regional road relay championship event on a warm and windy spring day. Unfortunately due to injuries and clashes with other events it was an incomplete team but many thanks to Lucy Burton for managing the team.
First off was Allison Hirst who brought the team in in 3rd place with an individual leg time of 19:21 for the 5.5K course (to stand as the 6th fastest individual of the day). Allison handed over to Helen Barnes who ran a solid leg of 21:46 to bring the team position to 9th. Diane Moore then gained back 2 places for the team to 7th with her leg of 21:17. Sue Walters hung on to 10th place with a good run in 22.18 and finally for HRR was Katherine LaFrance holding on to 12th place for the team at the end of 5th leg in a time of 24.08. Congratulations to Helen, Diane and Katherine as first time runners at this event.
