BMAF Road Relays

Tiptons veteran men narrowly missed out on a medal at the BMAF road relays in Sutton Park yesterday.  The 8 man team worked solidly through the race and gradually clawed their way back up into contention as the race progressed.  Incredibly the fastest runner for Tipton was Mike Hager - giving 15 years to some of his competitors around him.  On the last leg it was down to paralympian Mark Farnell racing against former Tipton member Paul Shackleton, now with Clayton-le-Moors Harriers, with Paul leading Clayton to the bronze medal.  Bristol & West AC were runaway winners with a 5 minute lead over second placed Leicester Coritanian AC
Tipton also fielded teams in the Womens and M50 age groups.
