Orston 10K & Run with me Nottingham

Twenty Striders headed to Orston for the popular 10K Spring Dash and judging from the reports and photos, it was a very enjoyable event once again.

The results aren’t out yet, I’ll post official times along with any PBs in the comments when they are available but for now here is a list (hopefully complete, I’ve been a bit like Sherlock Holmes this afternoon) of participants and some unofficial illustrative times from the apps etc.

In no particular order, Becky Clift 56:32, Natalie Sellars, Anthea Moisey 1:13:17, Heather Green 1:03:11, Bernie Divall 1:05:56, Donna Beveridge 1:18:44, Sally Priest 1:18:41, Jason Priest 58:45, Jon Rawson 49:57, Ted Behl 46:32, Nick Harrison 1:00:30, David Daubney, Steve Padgett, Ben Barnard, Peter Davis, Holly Davis 1:07:33, Mark Winter, Danielle Forsey, Esther, Di Holmes, with Gemma Latham, Simon Roberts and Niceeta Padgett in the photo and support crew.

Meanwhile at Holme Pierrepont, 14 Striders gathered for the Run with Me Nottingham 5 & 10K events.

The group comprised mainly of members who have recently joined via the Step into Striders programme earning their first race medals and t shirts, great to see everyone racing in orange. A few times are chip*, the rest unofficial and the course possibly wasn’t quite full distance, but I’m delighted to report that all of those racing for the first time and Kath did their fastest 5K to date without a doubt. Finishing first for Striders in 28:33 was the group of Andrea Leech Smith, Sarah Stern and Kath Scott then Rebecca Barlow, Clare Stainton and Debbie Bavin together in 29:30. Next was Andrew Chamberlain 29:57 followed by Ann Clay 30:39, Lynne Boby 32:33*, Ben Millen 32:34*, Sally Lambert 32:34, Sarah Stuart 32:34 and Emma Ashwin 32:34. Graham Welsh ran in the two lap race, finishing in 47:38.

Finally to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park where Lewis Hopkinson was in 5K action. Lew placed third overall and first Vet with a time of 18:23. Well done all!
