Bristol & West’s silver ladies star in National road relays

THERE KateHulls2015Bwas also plenty for Bristol & West AC to celebrate at the National Road Relays on Saturday with the senior women finishing second in the four-stage event around Sutton Park, in Birmingham.

The squad of Jasmine Finney, Charlotte Green, Kate Hulls (pictured) and Imogen Ainsworth ran superbly to claim the silver medals behind Swansea Harriers after a dramatic finale.

“Kate actually brought us into the lead on stage three after a brilliant run which was the third fastest time of the day,” said team manager Keith Brackstone.

“She just caught Carol Jones in the closing stages to hand over to Immo (Imogen Ainsworth) but she had Andrea Whitcombe just behind her.”

Ainsworth, who is still returning to her best form, couldn’t hold off Whitcombe but did enough to keep the chasers at bay and earn a deserved silver medal.

Earlier Finney had given the team a great start with 11th place on the opening stage and Green, who wasn’t feeling at her best, surged through the field to bring the club up to sixth at halfway.
