Scottish Road Relay Championships, 3rd April 2016
As documented in my post, "Consistency Is Everything," the Scottish Road Relay proved a more than successful one for our senior men with gold medals claimed. This was Cambuslang's first win in the race since 2007 and only the fourth in its history. We improved our places on each of the 6 legs, Robert Gilroy, also a member of the 2007 team taking us into the lead on leg 4. We went on to stay there. This marked my own first Scottish Road Relay gold after a silver and 3 bronzes in previous years. To cap things off, our over 40 and 50 teams were also gold medallists.
To be honest, I do not feel that I can do the day's events justice so I am providing links to two reports by others. The first is by our Chair, David Conney. The other is by one of the over 50 team members, Chris Upson. In addition, the Scottish Athletics round up is here.
