Swansea Harriers Ladies Team claimed their third succesive medals at the National Six Stage Road Relays on Saturday.
The Harriers clinched silver here for the second time in three years and as in 2010, did so behind an incredibly strong Aldershot team. Leeds City were third in what was a competitive ladies event.

Caryl Jones competed in her first National Road Relays on Sunday and was Swansea's fastest on the day and the third fastest overall behind Charlotte Purdue and Steph Twell.
Swansea proved their strength in depth with their ''B Team'' the next Welsh team home, finishing 17th with Les Croupiers 25th this time.
The tables were turned in the Men's twelve stage event with Les Croupiers finishing a credable 28th shortly ahead of Swansea Harriers in 31st.
Bridgend AC competed in Sutton Park for the first time in some years and came home in 55th. Les Croupiers ''B Team'' placed 61st with a team made up mainly of Masters.
Swansea pair Andrea Whitcome and Alaw Beynon-Thomas were the 2nd and 3rd fastest Welsh competitors in the ladies event with Katie Parry (Leeds City) the leading Welsh lady running for an English club and fourth fastest Welsh performer overall.
In the Men's event Jon Wills (Bristol & West) was the fastest Welshman in 26:35. Ian Williams and Ian Mitchell both ran strong legs for their Tipton Harriers team helping them to overall victory for the second consecutive year. Stephen Davies ran the fastest short leg for his Belgrave team, helping them to sixth and Matt Janes competed for his Bedford team here a week after winning the Isle of Man Easter Athletics Festival.
