Maggie Gellersjo (19:53) and Greg Waller (22:30) taking the first legs made a solid start to the evening.

Maggie, finishing about two-and-a-half minutes ahead, handing over to Griselda Shipp (19:38), along with Shaun Drew (17:10) on leg two.

Shaun made up ground on the girls and Griselda handed over to Olwen Coates (20:47), but she couldn't keep Ben Tucker (18:50) from taking the boys into the lead, Ben Tancock (18:04) then bought it home for the boys and Christina Green (17:09) for the girls about minute behind overall.

The Haldon Relays are next month (June) when more club teams are expected to be in action.
