Bradford Millennium Way 2016

Good day to you all,

Yesterday saw QRC participate in the Bradford Millenium Way relay for the first time with not 1, not 2 but 3 teams.

The relay is set on the BMW around Bradford and taking in some stunning views. Mind you, when you run it you spend most of the time watching your footing but I’m told the views are there nonetheless. It is set over 5 legs with each leg run in pairs over various off road terrain for around 10 miles per leg.

Anyway, enough of the rambling, here is an overview of our results. The detailed spreadsheet can be found at the link below.

Well done to all that raced, especially to those that seldom run on anything other than tarmac. Its quite a bit different and somewhat tricker.

Love and kisses
