I feel unable to write this report without first paying tribute to Lucy Pygott and Stacey Burrows, 2 U-17 runners for Aldershot and Farnham AC, who tragically lost their lives after being hit by a drink driver whilst crossing the road, at a pedestrian crossing, whilst out on a training run on Tuesday night.
Both girls appeared at the Relays at Mansfield at the weekend with Lucy running the anchor leg in the 2nd fastest time of the day, 8.31, for her team and gaining 2 places in order for her team to win 1st prize. Stacey also ran the anchor leg with her team finishing 13th.
Both girls had a bright future ahead of them and the world of athletics will be a lesser place without them. I’m sure all Striders would want to join me in offering our sincere condolences to the family, friends and teammates of Lucy and Stacey. R.I.P
