National Road Relays

Over 500 athletes were in Livingston on Sunday for the annual 6[men] & [4 women] stage National Road Relay Championships.
Lothian Running Club fielded two full teams in both races plus an incomplete team in the men’s. The LRC ladies who were defending the women’s title finished in 10th place on this occasion albeit with a changed quartet from 12 months ago. The ladies B team finished in 26th place. 55 full teams contested the men’s event with the Lothian club teams finishing in 22nd and 49th places respectively. The overall men’s title was won by Ron Hill Cambuslang with Central AC taking the women’s crown.
