Cross Country & Clumber 7K Night Run

Let’s start at Colwick Woods where 10 Newark Striders gathered for round 3 of the East Midlands Cross Country Series. It’s a very challenging course with hills and mud galore, a 5 mile course for men and 2.7 miles for ladies. Peter Davis 49:08, Simon Palmer 50:41, Noel Henderson 52:17, Darren Watkin 52:25, Andy Scott 57:03 and Andy Sirrs 58:33. Philippa Clarke 26:43, Chris Cregg 35:18, Kath Scott 39:48, Stacey Atkins 40:34. After 3 rounds our veteran men are 9th from 11 teams, ladies senior 7th from 11 and ladies veteran 11th from 12 teams.

Back to Saturday evening, and to Clumber Park where Lynne Boby, Stacey Atkins, Kath Scott and Andy Scott donned their head torches for the 7KM night run. The event isn’t timed, but the reward was a nice medal, with all proceeds going towards restoration work at Clumber Park.

Well done all who ran this week and thanks Charlotte Palmer for collating the cross country results.
