A further event at Sutton Coldfield. Pictures can be found from the following link: Peter Palmer Relays 2017

2016

The races were hosted by ourselves at Groby Community College. We did not quite achieve the successes we had in previous year’s being pipped for the trophies. We were second overall.

2015

LEI Juniors once again put in strong performances at the Peter Palmer Junior Team Relays. After a long journey south to Lancing Rings our juniors started racing at 5am. After over three hours running the first LEI team to finish came in third place just four seconds behind second place.

Meanwhile our younger team came in a few minutes later in 5th overall but was the first younger team to finish so LEI retained the Joan George trophy. These are LEI’s best ever results in this competition. Full results are available at http://www.southdowns-orienteers.org.uk/results-archive/2015/2015-09-13-PPRelay/index.html and pictures are at https://picasaweb.google.com/112685755530413453942/PPR2015WillHeap

We had 14 juniors from M/W12 to M/W18 running with the competition starting at 4:30am. This meant that the first 3 legs of the 6 leg relay were run in the dark.

All team members did really well and we won some individual prizes as well with Nick Wilson fastest boy on leg 3 and Hannah Cox fastest girl on leg 6.
