Gordon Whelbourn Week

Gordon Whelbourn week special report – and what a week it was! 50 Newark Striders ran in one or more of the 5 races, with the highest turnout being 30 at Balderton on Wednesday evening.

15 of us completed the entire series and earned a commemorative woolly hat. First was David Cross who finished 6th overall, then Noel Henderson, Michael Parker, Philippa Clarke, who was 4th female overall and Peter Davis. Stephen Tomlinson was next, then Dan Endersby, Jason Priest, Graham Welsh, Andy Sirrs, Lisa Edwards, Dan Arkwell, Nicole Henderson, Gemma Latham and Di Holmes.

Saving the most exciting news for last, I’m delighted to report that we had 4 prize winners. Noel Henderson and Peter Davis were first and second in the men’s 60-69 category, both overall and in the 10K. Nicole Henderson finished second in the ladies 55-64 group, again overall for the series and the standalone 10K. Jess Gordon took second place in the ladies 35-44 10K.

Well done to all runners and our smashing supporters, and club thanks to the Newark AC organisers and all who made the events such a success.
