Team Bath men hang on to clinch third in Castle Relay thrilller

TEAM Bath’s senior men produced another superb performance to clinch a thrilling third place in the Welsh Castes Relay last weekend.

Individual wins for James Donald (stage one), Elliot Ball (stage three), Gary Dunstone (stage eight), Steve Rose (first veteran on stage 13) and George Frost (stage 15) were the highlights of the two day event that incorporates 350 kilometres from Caernarfon to Cardiff Castles over 20 stages.

It is one of the great tests of strength in depth and a podium place only comes from consistency throughout the whole team as this year’s result amply demonstrated as Team Bath secured their third place by just 90 seconds over 21 hours of racing.

“What a great weekend at the Welsh Castles Relay Champs,” said club endurance coach Paul King.
