The club is taking part ina relay race this Sunday. Teams of 5 all doing 5k each..1 lady min per team and a lady must run the first leg.

As it happens the fastest 4 guys in the club are running so the question is...after our lady in what order should the guys run?:confused:

Oh and forgot to add..in the words, almost, of Anne Robinson..."I am the weakest (male) link"

In a sprint relay the fastest runner tends to go third and runs the longest leg by taking the baton ealry and passing it on late thereby running a slightly longer distance than the others but over a race of that sort of distance Steve I really don't think it would much difference. The only thing might be personal preference.

Update.........race minus 3 hours!!

Our top guy...16'30" 5k man...has got to run 2nd leg so he can get away asap....I reckon I'll need to do the 3rd leg...a lot slower... so I can then do the 5th leg for one of our "B" race teams.

Weather's looking good..not too warm
