These are compiled to the available data which we have but if you have any queries please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There may be the odd typo/split error which we are happy to look into and rectify as necessary.
We would like to give a HUGE APOLOGY to the TOP KATS team who actually came in 2nd female team and we didn't award them their medals at the prize giving. We did give them medals after the prize giving and the results have been changed to show their 2nd place. Well done girls.

Lastly, A VERY BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came along. We wouldn't have been able to organise last night's race without some help, and thank you to everyone who came along to help us on the night. And of course to the runners, you really make the atmosphere with your enthusiasm for the relays, which we all love organising and running.
