 Ava Hutchinson

Cardiff's men's team finished an excellent 10th out of 79 teams that contested the prestigious 6 stage national road relay championship at Sutton Park, Birmingham, yesterday, 16th October. The men had been hoping to capture a medal but still showed a substantial improvement on last year's 17th place. The ladies could not manage to emulate their fine run of last year, finishing 23rd of 69 finishing teams, although Ava Hutchinson (pictured) recorded the overall fifth fastest leg of all the runners.
