Baddow races

The Great Baddow 10 mile race is usually well attended by Striders it being local, and this year 47 Striders stepped up for the challenge. The route is an undulating one through Great Baddow and Galleywood, and on a warmish sunny Sunday could feel suitably challenging.
First Strider home was Sam Cornforth just under the hour in 59.18, followed by Alex Benson in 1.00.16 and Scott Dryden in 1.00.45. These three men won the first male team.
First lady Strider was Emily Smith in 1.15.12, then Lucy Westcott in 1.20.18 and Sharon Bannister with another PB in 1.20.59.
There was a trail on Sunday too; the Leisure FM trail with a choice of 6.5 or 3.5 miles. Gavin Allen and James Smith were 2nd and 3rd for the men and Sarah Colbert was 2nd for the ladies.
Well done to everyone who ran. Apologies for the late report - this is due to editor being unwell!
