Race Date: Sunday 3rd May 2015
Come on, own up, who ordered the biblical wind and rain?
Not sure if its because Lincolnshire is so flat, but the course really struggled with standing water. Making parts of the route seem more like running the Trunce than a road race. If it was a racecourse we’d be looking at good to soft, soft in places.
It didn’t seem to affect Matthew Nutt of Wimbledon Windmilers (great club name) who won the race in 1:13:24. First lady home was Tori Green of Ripon Runners in 1:23:14.
1495 runners completed the course and there were plenty of PBs amongst the 23 Striders who made the journey.
Most notable performances of the day goto Craig Shaw and Ben Jones coming home in 18th and 19th positions in 1:19:54 and 1:20:02 respectively.

The Striders Bus is coming
And everybody’s jumping
Steel City to Rainy Scunthorpe
An intercity running corp
The wheels of steel are turning
And traffic lights are burning
So if you like to party (get a PB)
Get on and move your body
