It’s one of those weekends when a lot of athletes have other events at the forefront of their thoughts, so less Striders out at parkrun than usual.
That said, we had a runner at Hartlepool, Newcastle and Durham, another four at Stewart Park and five at Albert Park.
Tees Barrage saw Striders out in force with 23 runners and a team of seven Strider volunteers under the watchful eye of run director Gail.
Alison Brame became the 34th Strider to join the 100 Club whilst Jackie Glass completed her difficult second run and set a new PB in the process. It’s taken a while but that must make it all the sweeter -Tara Oxley also grabbed a new PB.
It’s not a race…but special mentions to Lloyd Ryan who led the field home on his first attempt at Albert Park and Paul Johnson was second athlete back at Tees Barrage.
