Colchester half

The main event this weekend was the Colchester Half and it certainly was a beautiful day for it! 25 Striders took part.

First Strider home was Tom Cammack despite running for Essex the previous day at the Intercounties XC, in 74.04 minutes. Tom was 3rd overall and 2nd senior male.  He was shortly followed by team mate Gavin Allen in 74.34, who took 2nd v40 male and 4th place. The third Strider man was Zak Knill in 1.20.25.

First Strider lady home was Sharon Bannister with a new PB of 1.45.09. 2nd and 3rd ladies were Deborah Hitching 1.49 and Abbie Atkins 1.57.

Well done to everyone who ran!

Tom Cammack represented his county on Saturday at the Inter Counties XC in Birmingham. Tom did well to finish in 146th out of 261 runners.

Of course, Paul Bridges did a marathon this weekend; this week he completed the Thames Meander in 3.33.
