We had representation at quite a few events again this week – with the tourism award going to Anna Carruthers for her PB performance at York. Impressive timing award goes to Rachel Hall in the process of claiming her third consecutive PB whilst running at Albert Park. Talking of back to back PBs, Lisa and Jason Pattison repeated that feat at Sedgefield and Tom Day also threw one in there to join in that celebration. Finlay Pennington’s trip to Fountains Abbey also resulted in another PB. Staying local – Striders at Stewart Park, Darlington, Hartlepool and getting a preview of Flatts Lane prior to next week’s league run. At Tees Barrage 29 Striders enjoyed the conditions as both Sarah Griffiths and Jade Featherstone PB’ed. It’s not an official milestone but still impressive as Paul Leng became the 8th Strider to join to 200 club – a number that could possibly double by the end of this year.
Next weeks Flatts Lane event forms part of the Striders 2018 league – except for the uphill bits, its mainly a quick downhill trail run. Parking is a bit tight, although that should not be an issue to the marathon & 1/2 marathon people, so share if you can.
It’s not a race but…
Sarah Winter was 2nd female finisher at Tees Barrage
