The Essex Grand Prix series drew to a close today at the Stebbing 10. Falling on Remembrance Sunday, the race is preceded by a short service and two minutes silence. The sun was out for a glorious day in Essex, but the recent rain meant sections of the course were a bit muddy and slippery.

Trees and blue sky
A lovely day to be out in the Essex countryside!

That didn’t stop ten Striders from posting PBs though – including three new club records, and the ladies course record – amazing!Great running throughout the ladies and men’s fields today:
