South East Relays 2017

Sunday 18 June 2017 saw the SE Relays being run by Southdowns at Capite Wood near Dial Posts in West Sussex. DFOK entered two teams; one in the men’s open and one in the women’s open, with good performances all round. The main challenge on the day was dealing with the 30 degree heat. A lot of the teams, us included, spent most of the time around the edge of the assembly field trying to keep cool in the shade of the trees.
