Remembrance Sunday

The event of the weekend on a beautiful sunny Sunday morning was the Hobble, organised by Kevin, with options of 13.4 or 6.6 miles. This year the long route took runners to Margaretting and thereabouts. This is very popular with Striders and 43 took part in the 13.4 mile route and 16 on the shorter route; with 12 other clubs also taking part. There was much confusion by some of the runners in one part of the course; not the organisers fault!

The first man on the long route was Allen Smalls of CHAC, quickly followed by clubmate Sean Ketteridge. Chris Burgoyne was first Strider in 3rd..First lady on the long course was June Allen.

First man on the shorter course was John Hood of MEC, 2nd was our own Andy Mason and then Alistair Gillan. First lady was Nikki Brockbank, followed by Karen Chapman and Juliet Warren Penny. Well done ladies, especially Nikki, who is pregnant

The other event on Sunday; the Stebbing Remembrance Day 10, was attended by 17 Striders. First Strider man home was Alex Manton in 2nd place in 57.36; Alex was followed by Stuart Raven in 11th and Damien Barrett in 20th. First Strider lady was Libby Watson in 1.14, followed by Rebecca Pittman also seconds behind in 1.14, then Nichola Hands in 1.18. Rebecca was also 2nd FV45.

Paul Bridges did marathon no 154 Phoenix It’s a Number Game at Walton on Thames. It was a wet day and he finished in 3.49.

Well done to everyone who ran this weekend.
