South of England Road Relays - 22nd September

 

Congratulations to our athletes who took part in the South of England Road Relays on 22nd September at Crystal Palace.  Our U13G team was placed 6th, U15G (A team) 6th and U15G (B team) 31st and U17W team 14th.  Unfortunately, the U17M team ran as an incomplete team but after 3 legs they were in 4th position overall.  Well done to GGAC runners who competed.

 GGAC also had Louise Wood at the European Masters Championships in Italy.

The weather on the Friday evening was hideous. Torrential rain and no cover for the entire competition which lasted over 1hr 40mins. In very difficcult conditions and a less that perfectly organnised competition, it was very diffcult to maintain concentration.

Surrey Road Relays

On a warm sunny afternoon, a large squad of GGAC runners took on 26 other Surrey-based clubs in the County Road Relay Championships held at Wimbledon Park. 

With each leg comprising of just under 3miles, including a sharp climb up past the famous tennis courts of SW19, the Guildford teams were keen to put in a strong performance in the build up to the Southern Road Relays later in the month.
