Rick's Relays - Sunday 10th February

The inaugural run of RICK'S RELAYS took place in balmy sunshine, with eight teams lining up in Carding Mill Valley on the Sunday morning, being waived off in fine style by friends, family and a host of visitors to the popular National Trust Valley. Rick's rules said that all the Teams had to be mixed and many of the 32 runners, 'girls' or 'boys' were new to off-road running but nevertheless all had a great time and it was evident that they were really enjoying themselves.  The teams taking part were:- Shropshire Shufflers (2 teams), Newport (2 teams), Mercia Fell Runners, Shrewsbury Masters, Telford Athletic Club and Oswestry Olympians.  The Winning Team were Mercia Fell Runners who consisted of :-1st Leg - Matthew Clewes, 2nd Leg - Paul Cadman, 3rd Leg - Polly Gibb and 4th Leg - Ed Davies
With such enthusiasm this event is sure to go from strength to strength and we look forward to many more teams coming to the next of RICK'S RELAYS.
