Final 53-12 XC
The last 53-12 league fixture took place on Sunday at Notley Park on a rather mild Sunday morning.
17 male and 10 lady Striders took part in this. First male Strider was James Wright in 4th and making up the rest of the scoring team were Russell Davies 14th, Stuart Raven 23rd, Mark Buckley 54th, Gary Robins 57th, Peter Chubb 58th, Jon Byford 59th and Gary Wright 80th. The men were 6th on the day.
The ladies were led by Polly Bridgman in 6th, with the rest of the scoring team being Libby Watson 19th, Allison Gillan 44th and Donna Hindle 47th. The ladies were 5th on the day.
The final results for the season were that we were joint 4th with Great Bentley. Well done to everyone who ran in this league.
The juniors have done really well this season, especially as on many occasions there have only been 3 of them; Dylan Robins and Taylor Gooding have run every single race in this league. In this race Dylan Robins was leading junior in 26th, Will Pugh was 45th, Gaby Bilbie 46th, Taylor Gooding 65th, Jess Pugh 67th and Oliver Hitching 99th, out of a field of 111.
The juniors finished the season 6th overall which is a great achievement and well done all juniors who ran. Dylan Robins was 2nd in the U11 boys category and 5th in all boys overall. Well done Dylan!
Gaby and Taylor were 5th and 7th respectively in the girls U11 category – well done girls!
Senior Men, Vet Men & Vet Ladies Essex League Champions
A double header of Cross country this weekend with the final Essex League meeting with all to play for by Striders and our own Mid Essex league fixture at Highwood.
A cold and snowy morning at Basildon was the scene for the Essex league fixture where you might be mistaken in thinking that there wouldn’t be hills….of course there were!
12 Strider ladies braved the cold and were led by Liz Davies in 1st place; at least 30 seconds ahead of the second placed lady. Our second lady was Polly Bridgman in 20th, followed by Emily Smith in 25th; as these ladies are all vets they made up the vets scoring team and placed us first in this category. To make up the open teams (all categories) Vic Curren came in 28th, making this team 4th overall.
18 men took part in the later and longer men’s race. Paul Molyneux made a guest appearance for the club and took 5th place. Paul was backed up by James Smith in 9th, Tom Cammack in 13th, Greg Deacon in 19th, Alex Manton in 25th and Antony Goodall in 33rd, making them first on the day. The vets team of Greg Deacon, Antony Goodall, Paul Dobson and Seb McGuire took first place on the day too.
