First things first, Jonathon Archer was so quick at Tees Barrage last week we missed his PB.
Albert Park was again the place to be this week. Eight Striders and the first eight finishers all sub 17min! One of those, in a very impressive new PB of 16:52 was Lloyd Ryan.
Tees Barrage saw a big turnout of Striders as volunteers under the leadership of Angela Cox. The 37 runners included 3 PBs for Stella Hudson, Jade Featherstone and Kevin Dove – and with a bit more encouragement from her pacer we could have added Gail too.
We also had athletes at Stewart Park, Hartlepool, Sedgefield, Flatts Lane – PB for Finlay Pennington – and tourist of the week was PB setting Helen McIlvenny at Horton.
It’s not a race but…this is turning into the Sarah Winter section:
Sarah Winter – first female Tees Barrage, Helen McIlvenny – second female at Horton and Paul Johnson third overall at Tees Barrage.
