Halstead marathon

A cool and cloudy start for this years’ Halstead Marathon for the 7 Strider men and 2 Strider women who took part. The course is undulating through the Essex countryside and treats the runner to some glorious scenery (well, maybe us slower runners were more appreciative), a few hills up, and a few downhills. Well organised by runners for runners with well stocked water stations (including squash, biscuits, chocolate and sausage rolls!) with friendly marshalls as well as friendly other runners. Large scale marathons take note.

Peter Robinson was first male Strider and 4th in 2.43; together with James Smith 5th in 2.45 and James Wright 8th in 2.48, the men nabbed the Gold Essex male team prize.
