AFD SOUTHERN 12 Stage Champions
The runners of Aldershot Farnham & District won the South of England 12-stage road relay at Milton Keynes on Sunday. The club was put into the frame by Jonny Hay who took over in fifth following legs from Phil Sewell, Matthew Merrick, Harvey Dixon, Shaun Smith, Luke Prior, Max Heyden, Ellis Cross and Callum Charleston. Sam Eglen held third on the tenth leg before Joe Morwood hit the front by passing Alex Lepretre of Highgate Harriers (fourth in the South of England’ cross country championship) and Josh Lunn who had set off in first place for Bedford & County. Anchor man Ricky Harvie increased AFD’s advantage from ten seconds to more than a minute when clocking the fastest time of the day for the shorter stage.
