National XC Relays (03/11/2012)

It was a disappointing day for Tipton when disaster struck on leg 3 for Rich Kay.  A nasty ankle injury sustained on the second lap forced him to pull out of the race leaving Phil Nicholls stranded on the start line, eventually setting off with the mass start to clock 16:07.  The B team fared better finishing in 43rd position.

There was also a good turnout for the junior age groups, Luke Vine was the highlight of the day running in the U17 race. His time of 9:27 was 9th on first leg and 13th overall.
