Race Date: Sunday 12th October 2014
In weather more akin to August than October, a strong Striders presence descended on Mount St Mary College, Spinkhill for the first of four fixtures in the SYCAA Cross Country season.
127 runners contested the ladies race with Robyn Lancely of Rotherham Harriers & AC coming home first in 19:30. 177 men took to the grass in their race and Steve Bayton from University of Sheffield the first home in 28:51.
The men’s course was supposed to be 8000m (4 x 2000m laps) but most people recorded around 8.7km on their watches. Something certainly went awry there.
Brilliant running from all Striders and we hope to see everyone at the next event at Wentworth Castle on Sunday 26th October. Remember, entry is free for Striders members, see the dedicated Cross Country page for more details.
