RESULTS of the BRAN TUB RELAY
A big thank you to all the volunteers, without whom this event would not be possible.
There was a great turnout at the 2019 Bran Tub Relay at Hervines Park on Sunday. A rare pleasant weather day saw some competitive racing with several course records broken.
There were enough athletes to create thirteen teams of five, with team captains running two of the 1450m legs around the Devonshire Avenue, Chesham Road, Hervines Road loop.
