An embarrassed Littleton Chambers has yet again won the cup for the Fastest Legal Services Team – in the Wooden Spoon Society's (WSS) Relay Marathon held late last month.

The commercial and civil law set is a little embarrassed because it has won the cup every year since it began sponsoring it five years ago.

In recent years legal entries have dwindled and Littleton is searching for more chambers and law firms to take part.

Each team has 11 runners who complete 2.38 miles. This year the Littleton team completed the race in three hours 17 minutes, finishing 37th out of the 121 teams taking part.

Law firms or chambers who want to take part next year should contact Angela Berry of the WSS on 01628 602687.
