Coming just two months after winning Gold at the Northern XC, our Men's A team ran away from Leeds and Morpeth to win the 12 Stage Relay by 57 seconds in Sunderland. It was our first Gold at the Relays since 1998. The lead changed during the early part of the race until Max took control on leg 8 and after that we led until the finish.

Our women's team came a strong 6th and our men's 'B' team came 22nd which meant all three teams qualified for the National Road Relays in Sutton Park on 16th April.
