Yorkshire Marathon and 10 miler

A small contingent of Striders travelled to York to participate in the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon series.
Lets start with the marathon results, a huge well done Simon Palmer, Richard Scott and Nicole Henderson who completed the challenging hilly 26.2 course. Finishing very close together were Simon Palmer completing his first marathon in a time of 3:38:25, followed by Richard Scott completing his 7th offical marathon this year in 3:38:53. Also completing her first marathon was Nicole Henderson who finished in 5:15:47.
Amazing running Striders.
While in the 10 mile event Tom Marshall finished the course in a fantastic time of
