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.
The finishing order ebbed and flowed as the laps proceeded but it was Abbie Henderson’s Black team that prevailed, ending up comfortable winners with a great combined time of 29.21 (Abbie Henderson, Euan Pinder, Matt Brown, Frankie Baxter).
Only Will Perkin had previously gone below 4 minutes on the circuit but a very competitive lap 1 saw Richard Slade break the record with 3.53, and Alex Johnson (3.58) and Alex Johnson (3.59) also dip under. Alden Collier ran an U13 record with 4.16 and a record numbers of girls broke 5 minutes (Holly Henderson 4.35, Abbie Henderson 4.39, Frankie Baxter 4.49, Orla Williams 4.54, Lesedi Nkoane 4.56, and Maddie Hughes 4.57).
