In the Southern 12-Stage Road Relay held at Milton Keynes on 27 March Highgate had a strong team out, that will be well worth watching when they go for medals in the 'Big' one in the National 12-Stage Road Relay at Sutton Park on the 9th of April, thinks Ben Pochee their Team Manager.

In the Southern 12-Stage, Alex Lepretre set the club off on the first leg with an impressive long leg in 25:31 to come in second. It was on leg 3 that Jacob Allen put the club ahead with a 25:40 for his long stage. Right up to the last couple of stages, Highgate looked like taking the title but the final Tonbridge AC runners were a bit stronger on the day. The overall times of the top clubs were 4:10.00 for Tonbridge AC; Highgate Harriers, 4:10.52; Bedford & County, 4:11.58; Hercules Wimbledon, 4:11.47; and Cambridge & Coleridge, 4:13.39.

In a 5k race for Under 15's, also at Milton Keynes, Highgate Harrier Alex Mulvihill won in 16:53, well ahead of the second runner Connor Morgan, who ran 17:29.
