Lisa Watson’s write up of the Hodgson Brothers Mountain Relay

Great running this weekend at the Hodgson relays, we had 3 teams out: mens, mens v40 and ladies. It was wet, windy and foggy making for exciting racing, but nicely cleared up for the finish. Well done all!


MV40 team 3rd. (Austin Frost, John Hunt, Will Boothman, Neil Northrop, Simon Mills, Ralph Skrimshire, Tom Brunt, Oli Johnson)

Men’s team 4th, only pipped by Howgill harriers by a second! (Cynog Williams, Will Gratton, Alex Mason, Tom Saville, Joe Woodley, Henry Webb, Finlay Grant, Edward Corden)

Finlay Grant losing out in the sprint finish at the end of the Hodgesons.

Ladies team 5th. (Alice Gamble, Sarah Roscoe, Sally Fawcett, Rachel Rose, Anna Watkinson-Powell, Jenny Hall, Lisa Watson, Despina Berdeni)
