Leading off for the Herne Hill Harrier’s women’s senior A team in the Surrey County Road Relays, Great Britain track international Katie Snowden set the hills of Wimbledon on fire with a fast-paced first leg of 16.01, the second fastest overall women’s time on the day and one of the fastest ever recorded in this event.
Teammates Annes Stevens (19.09), Stephanie Mitchell (18.45) and Hannah Edwards (17.53) kept the lead until Steph McCall of South London Harriers stormed the final leg of the course in 15.51 for the best women’s lap of the day, setting a new course record (also broken earlier in the day by Katie Snowden) and guaranteeing gold for her team.
HHH also had W35 and men’s senior A teams placing 4th:
W35: Helen Hadjam (18.36), Samantha Whiting (19.35), Inga Bellahn (21.57) and Kate Crawford (19.20).

The Harriers men’s and women’s B teams placed 18th and 21st in their respective races, in what was a hilly 3 miles course and top competitive field of the region’s club and county level runners.
