Quiet weekend before marathons

This was a very quiet weekend for races; maybe due to Manchester and Rome marathons being next weekend, in which several Striders are taking part. It was also the annual Dinner Dance where a good time was had by all (we hope!!)

Four Striders travelled to the Reading Half marathonFirst Strider was Paul Ellis in 1.41, then Steven Armitage in 1.43, Michael Ferguson in 1.55 and Vickie Sweeney in 1.57.

Paul Jeggo kept quiet the fact that he was travelling to Ancona, Italy for the GB team in the European Masters Cross Country. He and team mates Julian Critchlow from Watford, and Steven Coxey from Swinton, won the v55 men’s team silver medal. Fantastic running Paul!
