Who would have bet on it? Consecutive PBs at Stewart Park for Jason Pattison, possibly already got an eye on one of those league trophies for 2018? Striders were also out at Sedgefield, Darlington and Hackworth – a new PB and our only real tourist for Andrew Laverick. Gail took charge of the show at Tees Barrage to witness 29 Striders take in the fresh air and see Jonathon Archers new PB for the course. New year’s welcome new members and there was a first time appearance under the Strider banner for Tony Gallilee at Stewart Park to add another name to the Strider 250 club whilst also leaving everybody else very far behind in his dust.
