    NSW Road Relays 2016 - Report

    Was it going to be 11th title in a row for our Open Men team. That was a question that everyone was asking. In the end Jeff, Courtney, Ben and Zac convincingly delivered uninterrupted winning streak. The weather conditions were perfect, right temperature and no wind.

    We managed to put together 5 teams and brought home 4 medals (2 gold and 2 silver), not bad effort at all.

    The Open Men win was achieved without fastest RBH runner of the day, Harry Summers, who decided on Saturday morning that he will race but unfortunately we couldn't put him on the team that late.

    All athletes on this team put very solid runs with very similar times (all within 9 sec) and first place was never in jeopardy. 
    It is worth mentioning that Jeff Hunt was part of the winning team nine times out of eleven. That tells a lot about 2012 Olympian and his contribution to our club.

    We were lucky to get Garry Howard and form strong 35+ team at the very last moment, these guys delivered again with fastest master runner around, Nic Cope, leading the them. Nic clocked very respectable 12:15, while Manu Sivaraj also clocked impressive 13:43.

    U20 Men also performed very well, coming only 45 sec behind winning team. Their fastest runner on the day was Kurt Fryer who is gaining some good form after injury comeback. Also, going home with new PB on this course was half-miler Stefan Music who clocked respectable 12:38.

    Open Men winning team (L to R): Jeff Hunt, Zac Facioni, Courtney Carter and Ben Moreau

    Katelyn Simpson was late withdrawal due to injury but in all honesty even with her our chances of winning Open Women category this year would not be great, Sydney University team was simply unbeatable on the day. Nevertheless, with help of juniors Georgia Evans and Emily Hopper, Kate Spencer and Lexy Gilmour produced very solid performances. Kate's time of 13:00 was second fastest time of the day, only bettered by Olympian marathoner Milly Clark.

    Also, we had couple of individual runners namely Mikayla Hopper (still younger junior) who broke 16min barrier. In the same race Heidi Hunt clocked just outside 16min but she is clearly on the improving curve.

    Silver for Open Women team (L to R): Emily Hopper, Lexy Gilmour, Kate Spencer and Georgia Evans

    Thanks everyone who participated. Also big thank you to coaches Ken Green and Gary Howard who helped with teams.

    All in all it was enjoyable Saturday with good vibes and camaraderie within RBH team. Even children present on the day (Summer, Olivia and Annabelle) seemed to enjoyed the occasion.
