The 2013 BMAF Road Relays took place in the home of road relay running at Sutton Park, Birmingham. Our M35 team began with a couple of big hitters with Martin Williams leading Stage 1 home with 14m 52s. Mike Hager was next out ending in 2nd spot with 16m 27s. On Stage 3 Paul Rogers kept us in the medal hunt with 3rd in 16m 44s. Towards the half way stage of the race Phil Clamp gained one spot to bring us back up to 2nd with 16m 28s. This was maintained by Aaron Keene (17m 11s) on the fifth leg. Stage 6 saw Mike Buntin again keep us in 2nd spot with 16m 13s. Stages 7 & 8 saw us slip outside the medals with Simon Massey (16m 24s) and Dean Hill (16m 55m) ending our challenge in 5th place overall.
In the M45 category we only had four runners and so did not "complete" a team. Mark Wright (18m 26s), Andy Williams (19m 32s), Bryan Mills (20m 51s) and Rich Brittain (18m 03) were our representatives.
In the M55 category we were 14th - Ray Stanier (down in the official results as Rat!) ran first leg with 18m 50s, Alan Grice (20m 01s), Keith Best (23m 30s) and Team Manager Jeff Taylor (21m 52s) were the team. Results
