BMAF Relays - 29/4/18

Ben Reynolds reports:
First off in the M35 race was Martin Shore finally attending the BMAF relays after many years of thwarted ambition. He was a little taken aback by the furious early pace but ran solidly to finish 13th and record one of only four sub-17 min Thames clockings on a course that was new to the BMAF relays. Next up was Simon Wurr making a welcome return to the fray after months of frustrating injury. Sutton Park has historically not been a particularly happy hunting ground so it was good to see him clock a low 17 min circuit and move us up a few places. Newcomer to the veteran ranks and new to Sutton Park, Charles Morris had given the team manager some cause for concern by only arriving 10 mins before his leg. Charles took over with heartening self-possession, promising himself he would run a 17.30 leg, and proceeded to scythe through the field taking us from 9th to 4th with 17.22. On leg 4 we had the unexpected pleasure of Phill Sly making a very welcome return to competitive action. Running faster than he has for many months/years he took us up into a medal position with a swift 16.40 and handed over to Nic Gould who, with London still in his legs, had the unenviable task of holding his position which he did to good effect handing over in 4th giving Phill Tedd everything to play for. Due to various ailments, Phillís attendance had been in doubt until the last minute but once again we enjoyed seeing the fastest sideburns in athletics deliver the goods. Holding his broken strapped GPS in front of him like some sort of lodestar, Phill was soon in silver medal position despite the efforts of Tipton to hang on. I had pity for Tipton and wanted to tell them that there was no point in hanging on. If they were still in the mix come the final sprint, they would be toast but it never came to that. Phillís long socks cruised home in a comfortable second. Team silver secured.
Meanwhile the older boys were having their own fun in the M45 race. Simon Baines opened proceedings with a fine victory on the first leg with the second fastest M45 time of the day (16.35). A hospital pass was a curious way to thank Andy Howse for manfully stepping into the breach caused by injuries to Messrs Weir, Lynas and Symonds but Andy stuck to his task and hung on well to hand over in 8th. Paul Cheetham set about moving us up the field and pulled us up to 5th despite being passed by eventual winners Cambuslang. That gave Ben plenty to chase. In times of yore it might all have ended in glorious gold but Benís diminishing strength meant he made no impression on the red Cambuslang and Salford vests in front of him. Thankfully he did ooze past Leeds and Leicester to capture team bronze.

We also turned out two teams in the men's V55-64 age group and thanks to Rhodri Davies for the race report:
Despite all team members being in the top half of the age group or out of it altogether, the A team of Richard Pitt, Andrew Lenon and Rick Turner placed a creditable 16th, with the B team (Rhodri Davies, Paul Whitlock and Mike Farmery) managing not to embarrass the A team or themselves in 22nd. Stand out performances were a 20:55 clocking by Andrew Lenon as he moved the A team up 6 places on leg two and a barely slower 21:01 from Rick Turner (who qualifies for the M65s).
