A run in a park

Home / Run reports / A run in a park

Single Strider representation at Albert Park, Sedgefield, Darlington, Hartlepool, Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, Hull and Lancaster. Three took to the course at Stewart Park, where Philip Morley set himself a new PB. A further eight tackled the hills of Flatts lane – here Tom Day set a new Striders best. The biggest Strider turnout, 31, was at Tees Barrage – with some of our marathon trainers seemingly playing a game of catch the tail walker in the process of their long run.  

It’s not a race but…

Paul Johnston led the field home at Tees Barrage followed by David Fender as 3rd male. Rachael Hall set a new PB at Hartlepool whilst coming in as 2nd female finisher and Phil Swash was the 3rd male finisher at Newbiggin-by-the Sea and in the process set a new best Strider time for the event.

    Haha, that was me, Ste and Chris trying to catch the tail Walker after we started our 15 mile run late due to a mix-up in carpark. Only thing was, once we’d passed the tail walker, we tried to pass as many park-runners as possible before the end. I did get a bit annoyed when an Park run finisher shouted “keep going, you’ve almost finished!” I almost ran back and said “don’t you know I’ve just done 15 miles!” Great run with Chris and Ste, looking forward to more long runs.
