Men compete in the Midlands Road Relays Champs

On 20th September 2008 Long Eaton Running Club entered a Menís team in the Midlands Road Relays Championships at Sutton Park. There were 6 legs of 3.67 miles. Andy McNeil ran the first leg in a time of 19:28, with Rod Harris running leg 2 in 19:18. Paul Lewis ran the quickest time, completing leg 3 in 19:17. Ian Chant ran leg 4 in 21:11, with John Birch running leg 5 in 22:14. Andy Colegate completed leg 6 in 20:27.
The team has qualified for the "Nationals" in 4 weeks time, back at Sutton Park. We were the 18th club over the line (omitting B & C teams), and the 26th of 80 complete teams to finish. Well done and good luck at the Nationals.
