Road Runners Qualify for National

Despite fielding a weakened team, Hercules Wimbledon Athletic Club’s road runners comfortably qualified for next month’s English National 12-stage road relay championship with a solid performance in the South of England championship at the Cyclopark, Gravesend, last Saturday, writes Tom Pollak.

Several of the club’s top runners were missing from the line-up but the reserves rose to the challenge and Hercules Wimbledon repeated the 14th place they achieved when competing at Gravesend in 2016. The team made a strong start with Alex Robinson handing over in 10th place after covering the initial 7.2km long leg in 20 minutes 21 seconds, the fastest long leg performance by a Hercules Wimbledon runner.
