Friday Night Five

The weekend started off with Striders’ own Friday Night Five – organised by runners for runners! Out of the 127 odd runners, 20 were Striders and there were many marshalls and helpers who help make this event what it is.

First Strider in 2nd place behind Ryan Prout of Thrift Green was Mark Newton in 26.39. With James Smith in 5th in 27.34, James Wright in 8th in 28.54, the male Striders won first team. Antony Goodall was 2nd M40 in 28.58.

The ladies winner was Sally Judd from Chelmsford AC in 31.19. Nikki Brockbank was first lady Strider in 36.00, followed by Anna Luff in 41.10 and Sharon Prince in 42.04. Janet Hill was 1st FV60.

Well done and thank you to everyone who helped and ran.
