6 Stage Road Relays (Senior Men)

Tom Holden has been in touch with regards to the upcoming road relay season for the senior men's squad. His update is reproduced here.

"As the Summer draws to a close (not wishing away the good weather too soon),  thoughts move to the 6 Stage.  The squad has built over the summer, with new recruits and people returning from injury it is the strongest we have had for some years. The one thing we have been missing from recent years is a medal at the Road Relays so lets make sure we change this!

Midlands 6 stage is 22nd September and National 6 Stage is 6th October.  As with last season, I have set up a Google Sheets for race entries.  If you are able to run make sure you add you name to it here

Team selection will be based on recent performances, so make sure you get out there and race over the next few weeks to prove your fitness.  There is a Masters race incorporated into the Midlands.  Any Masters that don't make the A team will be considered for the Masters A (with priority over Senior B team etc.).

Entries close on Sept 2nd so make sure your name is down way before that."
