British Masters National Road Relays – Saturday 17th May 2014

masters_female_2014A fantastic turnout for the men and women at the British Masters National Road Relays on Saturday 17th May 2014 at Sutton Park. Extremely hot conditions and some runaway cows on the course made it a tough race, but everyone worked hard and put in excellent performances, spurred on by some excellent support from partners, children and fellow BvHers that made the journey to cheer everyone on.

All the women and men wore black ribbons in memory of John Enright, who was due to run at the event before his tragic and sudden passing. I think that gave everyone some motivation to work hard and do our very best for the team, as John always did.

The positions, BvH results and links to full results are below, as well as a few photos.

Many congratulations to everyone that ran.

  1. Well done to everyone who ran. I was so proud that we managed to get 3 complete women’s teams out. Masters athletics is on the up at BvH! Brilliant running everyone – I did not envy the men running later, it was bad enough when we ran. Great results.

  2. Well done everyone! It was fun being a spectator. Highlights included the herd of stampeding cattle and the sunshine, oh and watching you guys of course.

  3. Saturday`s British Masters Road Relays was a very special occasion,albeit tinged with the sadness and sorrow of John Enright`s tragic and untimely passing away ( Thankyou Jude for organizing the memorial ribbons). It was a pleasure and a privilege to be running for,and with,Team BvH. I think that we all tried our best,and that is undoubtably what John would have done.
    Bournville Harriers seeks to be a club with an inclusive philosophy,and mutual support and encouragement are important components in our continuing success. Yes,`a good day at the office` for BvH,and a wonderful tribute to John Enright whose memory will live on.

  4. There was not a Barry Roberts running for BvH in the M45 Team on Saturday.However, there was a Barrie Roberts. Hopefully,the error can be readily rectified as it can effect the official records.

    I am the only Barrie Roberts currently on Power of 10. (There is a Barry Roberts M70,and a Barry Roberts M50 on Power of 10 ,but they are not me!).

    I`m sorry if I sound `pedantic` but inaccurate recording of races can effect ones selection for country,region and area.
