The Fife AC Senior Women’s team, representing Scotland, travelled south to the English Road Running Association 6 stage relay championship.

This race is considered the no 1 club event in the UK attracting more than 60 top teams like Aldershot, Bristol, Birchfield, Leeds and Belgrave Harriers and features many British internationalists and olympians. The race consists of 2 * 6 mile legs and then 4 * 5K legs so much thought is given to the tactics of the team running order. As the team was unfamiliar with the English athletes, the team Captain Jennifer Kibble instructed everyone to concentrate on their own pace judgement ignoring the team movements around them. This advice worked very well.

First up for Fife was newly crowned Scottish 10 mile Champion Megan Crawford. Starting gently she worked her way up to a magnificent 7th. Sophie Mullins (St Andrews) found herself surrounded by British Internationalists but managed her run well to limit the damage to 12th place. Stephanie Pennycook (Kirkcaldy) astonished everyone by moving up 2 places to 10th in 17.58. The place was held by Amie McKimmie on the 4th leg and Katie Jones (Cupar) on the 5th leg each running 19.51 on the hilly short 5K stretch. Jennifer Kibble (Ceres) played a Captain's part in moving the team up to 9th place in 19.22. 

Team manager and coach Ron Morrison said “I am delighted for the girls. This is the best performance by any Scottish women’s team in this event. All the athletes are coached within Fife and it demonstrates the ambition of the club to compete at this level.”
