A real club favourite saw 40 Harriers made up a superb 11 teams to join over 200 teams at the Rother Valley Relay.

It was a close-fought battle for the WH-Men’s-A team v Men’s-old boys (V40s) as the young lads edged it out, finishing 18th overall in 1:12:56 against 28th and 1:15:03 for the V40s.

It was as close in the female V50 battle as two teams ran neck-and-neck for the A leg before they were separated by 29 seconds after an hour and 15 minutes of racing.

The highest team position came in the mixed competition (two male and female) as they had two teams and went as defending champions from last year, this year finishing runners-up .

Elsewhere, Worksop pair Richard Hind and Chris Lawrence racked up a collective 66 miles as they completed the Spire Ultra in Chesterfield.

Starting and finishing in North Wingfield, it included 4,000 ft of ascent and the duo completed the event in 7:25.

The Rotherham 10k makes for a hilly 10k and challenging course as a few conquered the age groups as Kerry Saville and Sharon James were both first in their respective AG in 42:47 and 53:29. Ethan Ellery ran an excellent first 10k road race in 41:17.
