Rauceby Ripper & Nottingham 5K

With Storm Ciara bringing 70 mph gusts and heavy rain on Sunday, the final round of the East Midlands Cross Country Series at Long Eaton was cancelled amongst other events.

Rewind to Wednesday, and Stephen Tomlinson and Nick Hamer were competing in race 4 of the Nottingham 5K winter series on the Embankment. Tomo crossed the finishing line in 23:59 and Nick 29:57.

On to Saturday and four Newark Striders lined up for the Rauceby Ripper, an 8.8 mile multi-terrain race up hill and down dale over farm tracks, fields, gravel, asphalt as well as splashing through mud and water. Matt Silk finished in 16th place overall with a time of 1:04:36, followed by Steve White 1:15:45, Graham Welsh 1:16:12 and Anthea Moisey 2:02:03.

Well done everyone who ran this week.
