The team of Alex Carcas, Murray Strain and Hector Haines brought INT home to victory for a record-breaking fifth time in the JK Relay Championship.

In a race featuring the top UK clubs and several National teams from Europe, 17 year-old Alex brought the team back 11th, less than 2 mins down on the Swiss National Team, and together with our main rivals ShUOC and Forth Valley.  On the short leg, Murray passed several weaker teams, and crucially took 30 secs  on ShUOC and 90 on FVO.  A nervous wait in assembly, the Swiss and Czech national teams come through, then Hector a few seconds ahead of Jonny Crickmore of ShUOC, with FVO's Graham Gristwood hot on their tails.  More nervousness in the arena.  Then Hector appears on the run in, hanging on for a 6 sec win.
