South of England Road Relay Championships.


Our BBHAC young athletes were out in large numbers and competed superbly at this winters South of England Road Relay Championships.

Bedford Autodrome was the new venue for this years Championships however, the organisers, South of England Athletics Association, didn’t do a great job of organising the 2017 edition of what is usually a very good event.

Despite BBHAC having over 40 young athletes racing and probably the same number of parents, siblings and friends making the 2 hour journey, most would have been left feeling very disappointed with the facilities but not with the performances.

Results are still to be published, (one of the issues) so a full report cannot be made. I will endeavour to do this asap.

If this was your first visit to a major championships please don’t be put off by this badly organised, poorly run and very flat event. The National road relays (and other fixtures) will be a much better event.

The National road relays are on Saturday 8th Oct at Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham. We normal leave early in the morning and this year we hope to do as well as in previous years and be right in the mix of things.

Please can you let me know if you are available for selection?

Many thanks
