Halstead and Great Baddow

A much cooler weekend for racing this weekend and several Striders took part in a couple of events.

At Halstead Marathon, our championship marathon race, our marathon champion is Chris Burgoyne who was first Strider in 3rd place in 2.45.11. Alex Manton was next in 6th in 2.51.22 and Robin McCoy 14th in 2.59.55.

The ladies fared well too; Jackie Stretton was first lady in 3.00.42 and set a new course record. Together with Donna Morris (3.58.52) and Emily Smith (4.07.46), the ladies scooped the silver team prize. Jackie is now our marathon champion as well.

Dave Smith had a proud moment when he won the MV60 Gold medal.

The Great Baddow 10 was run on the same day and is always popular. 21 Strider ran. First Strider was Paul Miles in 1.02.35, then David Lindsay in 1.04.21 and Michael Merrill in 1.04.38. Simon Bowring was 1st male Great Baddow villager in 1.05.38.

Nikki Brockbank was first lady and first fv35 in 1.05.04. Second lady strider was Katerina Miller in 1.19.29 followed by Jo Johnson in 1.21.43.

Well done to everyone who ran.
