Race Date: Saturday 4th March 2017
Races where us ‘oldies’ can’t be whooped by the young whipper snappers!! Sadly I’ve always had something on when this race is on so I’ve not had a chance to be beaten thoroughly by people of my own age.
Steel City Striders won a load of stuff at this event last year. This year there was also some success. The first race pitted the women and the 70+ men together in a 5km race. There were 103 entrants and the race was won by Helen Berry of Holmfirth Harriers in 20.40. The first MV70+ male was Peter Ellerton of Bingley Harriers in 26.17. Special mention to Sheena Woodhead who was first in her FV 65 category. Well done Sheena. The Striders FV 35-44 team (3 to score) finished 11th.
