Warm weekend

There weren’t many races on what turned out to be a warm weekend but, as always, Striders managed to run in some.

Gavin Allen and James Smith ventured up north to the Calderdale Way Ultra, which covers a total of 53.5 miles (although they got lost and did slightly more….) and included 8000m of ascent. They completed in 12h 27 and were the first male team!

Paul Bridges also did more than a marathon; the Shires and Spires 35 miler in Northamptonshire, which was a lot of off road and very hilly, he completed just after Darran Hull in 7h19.

Sarah Colbert and Rebecca Pittman both ran the Kirton 5 on Friday in Suffolk, organised by Felixstowe road runners. Sarah was 1st FV45 in a time of 34.57.

Sarah C then ran the Stour Valley Marathon on a hot Sunday; no results available yet.
