Golden Acre Relay

Thank you to all the competitors and marshals who came along to the Golden Acre Relay on Tuesday 6th July 2021 and made a great evening.

Congratulations to Callum Elson (Roundhay Runners 13:22), and Joe Baxter (Pudsey & Bramley 13:39) who both beat the previous men’s course record (13:57) set in 2006. Callum enters the record books with his amazing fastest time.

Also congratulations to City of York AC Ladies who set a new women’s team record, breaking the previous time of 51:03 with an amazing 49:13.

Callum and the City of York Ladies team enter our record books. Well done all.
