North Herts Road Runners turned up at the FVS 3k relays with a fast and furious attitude on Thursday.
The event, which is organised by Fairland’s Valley Striders and has been missed for the past couple of years due to Covid and hot weather. The race is a Road Relay for Men and Women from local running clubs in Hertfordshire / Bedfordshire. Each leg is 3km and 4 members must complete a leg to make up team. 56 North Herts Road Runners turned out making up 8 mixed teams, 2 ladies teams and 4 men’s teams.
Provisional results show that North Herts Road Runners women’s team came a phenomenal 1st place overall, with NHRR men finishing 2nd, not far behind Luton. North Herts Road Runners also collected county gold in both the women and men’s races, and the vet’s men’s team won county gold with vet women in silver. Mixed teams from NHRR also finished 2nd and 3rd overall.
John Auld, North Herts Road Runners men’s club captain, said, ‘The event was fantastic. We've all missed the event and it was yet another fantastic evening for NHRR. I was very pleased to see so many squirrels running together, for each other. The atmosphere was amazing.’
