Ridley Round

The Ridley Round is a trail with a difference; a 13 mile trail race with bonus points awarded for drinks at pubs around the course, so some very short times recorded for the 13 miles. Each time you have a drink, your card is marked, appropriate bonus calculated and that time taken off your overall time. 26 Striders ran this race (does that mean we like a beer?).

So, James Smith and Mark Newton shared first place with Alan Smalls and Sean Ketteridge of Colchester, and logged a final time of 19.10.

First lady was Pru Hayhow of GFDR, with Sarah Hammond and Nicky Brockbank coming second in 1.49.41.

The Great Newham London run is a 10k run in and around the former Olympic stadium in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. This was attended by a small cohort of Striders; 8 in total. First man was Dennis Sherwood in 52.22 and first lady was Donna Hall-Fremont in 1.16.40.

At the Fambridge middle distance triathlon, Andrew Wright was 3rd in the MV category and 8th overall, Peter Chubb was 22nd in MV

Kevin Hopper is now added to the list of Ironmen where he completed his race in Bolton in a total of 14.07.
