May Races

A handful of Striders (8 men and 2 ladies) ran the inaugural High Easter 10k race on Sunday. Gav Allen was 1st male in 34.30, followed by team mate James Smith in 2nd in 34.46. Alex Manton was 5th male and this gave them the first male team. Highest scoring Strider lady was Jenny Barrett as 7th lady in 48.40

A warm day saw a big turnout for the 2nd in the Royal routes trail series on Sunday and an excellent route enabled fast times for some. There was a choice of 2 routes; 5.7 miles and 8 miles

In the 5.7 miles our highest placed Strider was Richard Sirrett in 5th and for the Strider ladies Sarah Colbert in 9th (2nd lady)

In the 8 miles Roger Gooding was our first male Strider in 4th and Janet Hill first Strider lady in 24th.

Mark Newton was spotted on the TV running the Great Manchester Run 10k and ran a PB of 32.54. Mark was 34th man - nice one Mark!

Jon Legge, Tim Brockington, Neil Bradley, Julian Catmull, Darran Hull and Catherine Hull all participated in the Three Days in May fell series at Hayfield at the weekend in generally dry conditions. Star performer was Catherine who was first Strider home at Mount Famine, the toughest of the three races. The Hull boys, George and Henry also took part in the Lantern Pike Dash junior race. It was nice to meet up with former Striders John Williams and Andy Kettles.

Paul Bridges also did a marathon....Richmond Park in 3.50; this is number 132
