The “JC Race Solutions Best Team Name Award” goes to “Three Quarters Relay-ted” (Stafford Harriers)

 

“ Showground Relays 2022 (returning on 14th June 2023)”

 

Thanks to all clubs, runners and Stafford Harriers who attended this years Showground Relays on Weds 7/9/22.

Returning after a 3 year break due to Covid and restrictions.

It was really good to see so many familiar & new faces joining us for a great night of relay racing at such at a great venue.

I would like to personally thank all of those that helped to make the night such a success.

 

Firstly, to my fellow Harriers who helped in the daytime setting up, marshalling in the evening & again packing away at night.

In addition, Bryan Dale & Mick Hall for the fantastic photos,

JC Race solutions for the timing service and best team name sponsor.

& Stafford County Showground for the use of this great venue.

A special thanks goes to RTC Medical services for the medical cover on the night and the prompt response and actions that helped our fellow runner, Colin Pheasant of Chase Harriers.

Colin is now having a few days rest in hospital under going further tests.

I’m sure that everybody will join me is wishing Colin the very best for a speedy recovery.

 

Finally, the results have now been published & understandably it didn’t seem appropriate to hold a presentation on the evening given the circumstances.

Therefore, all winners will be contacted over the next few days to arrange distribution of the prizes & awards.

Well done to all category winners on what was a great evening of relay racing.

We all look forward to seeing you all again next year back in our usual June date of 14/6/23.

 

Thanks & regards
