Dronfield relays result

Race Date: Sunday 10th July 2022

14 teams of 6 and 8 solo runners took part in the Dronfield Way last weekend. Superbly organised by Rachel Rea with assistance from the rest of the organising team (Vicky Hawkins, Helen Smith, Rob Davies, Andy Green, Joe Buckman). I proved the fact that if you are bad at something, you don’t get asked again, therefore I never got the safety pin role this year. Thankfully, I did remember the tables and the much needed water carriers (filled too, you know) There was Pimms and shortbread to replace the winter mulled wine and mince pies that were on offer at the end of each leg at Christmas

Everyone seemed to have a great time and sweated their way through their respective legs or the full round. The emphasis was very much on racing but having a good time, without too much concern about the results. This is what makes this event such a fun and relaxing event to host.

There are 40th anniversary Striders Dronfield Way limited edition mugs to hand out to the winning teams and that will be done on Sunday at the Striders party at Bradfield.

If you want to have a winter edition you may have to petition Rachel Rea as she didn’t sound too keen. See you at the relays in either December or next July!
