On Sunday 29th March the Scottish Athletics Road Relay Championship were held at Almondvale, Livingston. The popular event is for both men and women with the men doing 6 alternate laps, 3 short (3.1miles) and 3 long (5.8miles) and the women doing 4 alternate laps, 2 short and 2 long both starting with the short lap. Teviotdale had a full mens team competing for the 1st time since 2003 and finished a creditable 33rd in 2:45:35. The race was won for the 1st time by Kilbarchan AAC. Individual times were 1st leg Kyle Potts (44th) 19:33, 2nd leg Rory Anderson (28th) 33:25, 3rd leg Ged Smith (40th) 21:26, 4th leg Stewart Fraser (34th) 35:01, 5th leg Alex Corbett (35th) 21:12, 6th leg Bruce Hughes (33rd) 34:58. It was a tremendous effort by all the lads and great to once again see the Teviotdale colours competing in the national relay championships. A huge thank you to Anne, Lauren, Kirsty and the kids for their noisy support and photos.
