Dean to lead medal chase

Have your say

Hallamshire will field teams in both the men’s and women’s races at the National Road Relay Championships at Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield, tomorrow.

The women’s team have finished fourth in their six stage races for the last two years, just missing out on medals. This time, however, they are without Lizzie Adams due to work commitments, and Nicola Squires who is with a training group in Portugal.

Their top runner, Hatti Dean, is in the Hallamshire line up and will do the opening stage. It would be no surprise to see her challenge for the fastest time award.
