CS Women Win Team Gold and Team Silver at The LBH Bridges Relays

The London Civil Service Women's "A" team won team gold at the London Business Houses Bridges Relays on the 25th June. The "A" team also set a new London Civil Service women's course record of 42:30 for the 3 x 2.3 miles smashing the previous London Civil Service women's record of 46:59 set in 2007.

The team consisted of Liz Stavreski (14:09.9), Stephanie Robson (13:56.0) and Diana Kennedy (14:24.2). The Bridges Relay Champions beat a field of 17 women's teams which included a number of LBH unaffiliated teams with Dulwich Runners and Highgate Harriers among them. Stephanie Robson (pictured)  also collected an individual bronze medal for recording the 3rd fastest leg from a woman representing a LBH team.

The Civil Service women's "B" team also performed well finishing in 5th place overall in 47:50 but as the 2nd placed LBH team to claim the silver medals.

Katie Meredith(pictured)  ran the lead leg for the women's "B" team and proved to be an excellent find clocking the 2nd fastest time from a LBH entrant to win the LBH individual silver medal. Katie was only drafted in as a late replacement just an hour prior to the start due to a withdrawal. Maureen Paul (18:12.07) and Maureen Noel (15:42.3) completed the LBH silver medal winning line up.

Men's "A" team set a new London Civil Service Course Record

The Civil Service men also performed well at the Bridges with the "A" team finishing in a solid 8th place overall in 54:26 which was a London Civil Service Men's team record for the course of 4 x 2.3 miles from a field 76 open teams and were placed 7th out of the LBH affiliated teams.

Crispin Allen ran the lead leg for the "A" team in a very impressive 13:06.6 and was back up by Andrew Davis (13:17.0), Jerry Carnell (13:40.9) and John O'Shea (14:21.6).

Unfortunately, the men's "B" team were a man short on the night and could not close. The team consisted of Kieran Donoghue (15:12.3), Ross Parker (16:24.1 and Andres Gopaul (18:01.7).

The event was once again well supported with 270 men and 89 women taking part.
