The weather at Trunce race 2 was the polar opposite to Trunce 1. The first race of the year brought near freezing temperatures, lashing rain and howling wind. Last night was the kind of spring evening where you feel well and truly alive.
Nice weather always guarantees a good turnout and last night was no exception with 387 in attendance, of which 57 were juniors and 330 adults. Which made the opening dash to the bridge like a scene from the film 300.
After the event, Tracy from Kingstone Runners said the Striders who assemble around the finishing funnell are like a travelling city who appear at every event. Don’t worry, she meant it in a nice way. The way we congregate, support and cheer on our fellow club members is not going unnoticed.
31 (thirty one) Striders ran last night, so almost 10% of the runners in the race. Amazing.
An even more amazing stat is that the official site records 23 of us getting a PB last night. Stunning.
A special mention must go to Hannah Helmore who was first lady home last night and now sits joint top of the female season long table after two races. (accessible via the seasons results tab on the Trunce site). Also, being the first lady home will give her a whopping 100pts full house in the Fell Race Championship.
First man past the post was Adam Potter of Westbury Harriers in 24:52
