"The annual curtain-raiser to the XC season, the relays, took place on Saturday, October 7th.

For many senior runners it was a return to Stubbers after an absence of 10 years or more although the junior runners were more familiar with the venue having had school XC events there.

It proved to be a popular return as entries were up by 27% on the previous year - 246 teams in total.

Thankfully the rain forecast didn't materialise and there was a mixture of sunshine and drizzle throughout the day.

The course was fast and fairly flat, with just a couple of undulations, very twisty and a run through the trees (watch out for those tree roots!) With no rain all week, the course was dry and great for spectators.
