There was a strong Claremont representation at this year’s Masters Relays in Bedewell Park, Jarrow. In the first race, the 4 ladies teams were supplemented by our male over 65 team with 3 more teams fielded in the men only race.
On a cool but dry night, there were some good performances and a bit of inter-team rivalry to keep interest levels high – indeed Howard MacLennan’s incredible sprint finish to try top catch the equally determined Dave Wotton was one of the highlights of the night.
Our older teams did very well – the over 55 ladies team of Hazel, Gill and Cath were 1st in their category and the gadgies team of Alasdair, Dave K and Kenny came second in their age group – and I am sure that we would have won the prize for noisiest supporter category if it existed!
