Welsh teams competed at the Alsager 5 mile Road Race in Satffordshire on Sunday. The teams competed in an inter-area match against the North of England, Combined Services and hosts, the Midlands.
A flat and fast course welcomed the athletes keen to post a good time over the distance that is not often run.
