The Stragglers took part once again in the Welsh Castles Relay. We finished 36th in the Open Category and were 46th overall in the 65 team competition.
Our 20 strong mixed team completed the 207 mile course from Caernarfon to Cardiff, through the Welsh hills and valleys, in 26hrs 6mins 12secs. Our average pace was 7mins 33secs, which is a fantastic achievement for a team of mixed abilities, traversing some of the steepest mountain roads that you will find anywhere.
Well done to all who ran!
Another successful running of the Greenbelt Relay on 16/17 May. A total of 30 teams of 11 runners competed in the 220 mile relay over the 2 days.

WELL DONE to all who ran.
A HUGE THANKS to all involved in organising it.

Inspired by Nigel Rothwell, Dave Griffiths and Peter Wedderburn ran the London Marathon in aid of The Sir William Rous Unit at Kingston Hospital. Here they proudly present a cheque for the£2,000 they raised.
Kingston CAN is an appeal to build, equip and maintain a purpose-built, patient-centred Cancer unit at Kingston Hospital.

Nigel is being treated at Kingston Hospital and is keen to “give something back” by supporting the Cancer Unit. He is hoping to undertake a number of personal initiatives, but would welcome support for fundraising through London Marathon fundraising campaigns.
