Race Date: Sunday 10th May 2015
13 Striders joined the thousands of runners taking part in the 30th Leeds half marathon this morning. It was a gloriously sunny day which made for very pleasant, if not slighty warm, running conditions. The route had a few inclines and some fast downhill stetches but on the whole was a much flatter route than the Sheffield half. This allowed for some speedy times and some PBs amongst the Striders present.
The race was won by Mohammad Aburezeq of Altrincham & District AC in a blistering time of 1:11:18. First lady home was Hannah Oldroyd of UKnetrunner.co.uk in 1:23:10
As for the Striders, the Goldsack train keeps on rolling. Hot on the heels of his debut marathon performance at Blackpool, then his 1st place in the parkrun comes a first Strider position in the Leeds half marathon. Well done to Martyn and to all the other Striders who ran at Leeds and notched up some fantastic times.
