A highly successful Jan Kjellstrom Festival concluded for FVO with a pair of medals for the Senior teams in the relays, bringing the trophy count for the weekend to 31.
The Senior Men were able to call upon the fresh legs of Steve Feltbower and Marcus Pinker, both of whom were making their first appearances of the event, and, joined by Middle distance bronze medallist Ben Stansfield, they were able to stay tight on the tail of South Yorkshire, finishing three minutes down for the Silver medal. The Senior Mens 'B' team of Will Hensman, Jason Inman and Roger Goddard was third past the post, but was relegated for an early mispunch.
In the Senior Womens relay, Kirsty Bryan-Jones took over for the final leg in Bronze medal position, having been set up by solid performances from Beccy Osborn and Rona Molloy, and held off a fightback from Interlopers to confirm the 3rd place finish.
The Mini Relay team of Jamie Connor, Matthew Inman and Katie Hensman was 4th, just two seconds off a medal, and a hastily-assembled Ad-Hoc team comprising of Jamie Goddard, Paul Shaw and Euan Patton finished 6th, with Euan having the second-fastest split on the final leg
