Striders win at Box Hill

Conditions were good for this 12k fell race on the North Downs. Harold Wyber had a particularly good day, his only disappointment being his failure to break the 50' mark, as he came home 2nd in 50'13". Neil Mcgouan was next home, 13th in 56'35", followed by Paul Jeggo, 24th in 58'57". Eleven other Striders ran, with notable efforts from Jo Gemmill, 177th in 77'41" and Darren Hull, 217th in 84'17", having arrived at the start a little late. Watching fellow Striders enjoying the last few hundred metre downhill run in, it seemed that the 2nd place for Harold and a possible age prize for Paul would be the height of our success. At the Prizegiving Harold received his prize, Paul a deserved 2nd V50; then the team prize, 1st place, Springfield Striders; well done Harold, Neil, Paul and 4th team member Jon Legge, 83rd in 67'02". Other results will be at                                                                                                                                                                                                           There will be a number of trips to the fells in the coming months; details will be in the Fell section and on the chatboard.
