Virtual Racing - 2021 National Road Relays

23 February 2021

13 Harriers completed a gruelling 5 mile time trial for the 2021 Virtual National Road Relays Championships. Having qualified for the competition in January by finishing in the first 50 teams of any clubs across England, the team once again came out strong to finish in 39th position. 

There were some impressive performances all round. George Watson was once again the fasters Harrier with a time of 26:15, 27seconds faster than his run a month previously. Kaitlyn Sheppard was our fastest female (28:52) and also improved her first round time by 18seconds. Elliot Prince (28:35), Kevin Sheppard (28:56), Andy Gore (30:52) and Victoria Wilkinson (32:54) were also all able to improve their first round times. 

A special mention to the Sheppard family for filling four of the team places through Kaitlyn, Kevin, Sarah (33:52) and Chloe (34:34). 

Daniel Minors (29:00), Harrison Miles (30:42), Russell Forsbrook (31:30), Andrew Kaighin (32:50) and Jo Wilkie (34:39) filled the remaining team places with some strong runs in tough conditions.

A big well done to them all and thank you for supporting the team effort and creating a brilliant team spirit virtually.
