Congratulation’s to SLOW’s Women’s Open team, who won the Harris Relay at the Triple O Severn event on Bank Holiday Monday. The event was held at Gaer Hill, on the Wiltshire/Somerset border. This was a UK Relay League event, which means our women are now doing very well overall, with this win following two 4th place finishes at the British Championships and the JK. The winning team was Nicky King, Sarah Covey-Crump, Diane Leaky (all pictured right) and Kathy Haynes.
SLOW’s leading Men’s Open team – Simon Evans, Paul Nixon, Peter Haynes and Charlie Turner – also finished on the podium, with an excellent 3rd place.
Many congratulations also go to Abi Weeds, who won the women’s British Elite Middle Distance Championships on Saturday at Fonthill in Wiltshire, collecting a nice big trophy for her efforts!
SLOW enjoyed a very sociable weekend at the event, with over 20 club members staying together group accommodation in a nearby caving club hut in the Mendips – thanks to Simon Evans our social secretary for organising this.
Full results of the event can be found on the Triple O Severn website.
A selection of photos from the event are now up on the Sloweb photo gallery.
