Crystal Palace Park hosted the annual Southern England Athletic Association Road relays on Sunday with Dulwich Runners in the medals.
The women’s V50 team of Clare Elms, Ange Norris, Michelle Lennon and Lucy Pickering secured gold – sealing victory by more than seven minutes from nearest rivals Woking AC.
The men’s V40 team won silver joining neighbours Kent AC and Herne Hill Harriers on the podium.
Buzz Shephard finished the first leg in front but despite some express pace from Daniel Mann, Tom South and Andy Bond, Kent AC just had a little too much speed on the day.
The senior men’s team of Ed Chuck, Jack Ramm, Shane O’Neill, Al Locke, Tim Bowen and debutant Ian Fenn finished in 38th place.
Dulwich fielded three teams in the senior women’s race. The A team finished 25th out of 55 teams with excellent runs from Kim Hainsworth, Alice Williams, Roz Johnson and Elkie Mace. Emma Kelly enjoyed her first race for the club and Yvette Dore demonstrated good form to suggest that her first sub-20 5k is not far away.
The men’s V50 team finished 10th despite an exceptionally rapid first leg from Tony Tuohy. The men’s V60 team finished 12 seconds outside of the medals.
