There was also the 4 x 400m relay, which due to numbers (36+, 9 teams) and the fading light, meant full results were not available. Richard Dudman 7:20, Jenny Akroyd 11:28, Rahana Islam 11:44 and Ian Cummins 11:59 also took part in a beverage mile, which was interesting.


Finally for Yolanda Ceveira's charity challenge 29 brave souls linked legs for a 30 legged race which had to be a minimum of 40 metres, but was upped to 60 metres to be sure. The result was a giggle filled shuffle to the finish line and much fun had helping Yolanda with her challenge. Good Luck Yolanda.
