Christmas Medley Relay 2022 (27th Dec)


Our Christmas Medley Relay took place at the club grounds on Tuesday morning 27th December. Teams of 4 took part with over varying distances of 1200m, 400m, 800m and 1600m, a good range of distances, so the running order was important to maximise the team result. After the first round of relays the teams resumed in round two, with the slowest team from round one starting and the start time for each team was set accordingly in reducing order to the fastest team from round one setting off last and chasing everyone else.

Following a trilling finale, the team of Murty Hanly, Catriona Kennedy, Kieran Nolan and Lorcan Mullen were first home. In total 10 teams completed the relays and there was a great mix of the regular masters group supplemented by younger family members. Refreshments were enjoyed by all at the conclusion of the event, with a voluntary contribution from each person providing a nice sum that is being donated to North Westmeath Hospice.
