Harwich, a Haven town and port oft sleepy, tranquil and serene on a Saturday morning was curiously abuzz with activity as a record 98 teams declaring themselves fit to do battle descended on a small oval shelter along the Dovercourt seafront for the annual running of the Essex Relay Open and Veteran Championships. Thankfully the strong winds of the previous night had mostly abated leaving a brisk cross breeze that did little to deter the enthusiasm of either the competitors or the stoic yet somewhat amusing efforts of those stalwarts attempting to erect the Witham pop-up tent. It was equally heartening  to see teams from the length and breadth of the County, some surviving vast and tortuous journeys all  for the privilege of grasping the cylindrical object inside in which lay that mysteriously wondrous piece of technology that has recently transformed the face of the Essex Relay world.
