15 hardy souls braved the ‘Beast From The East’: -6C with a reasonable wind – and fought their way around the slippery Sheffield roads drinking pints of, in at least one pub, very cold beer.
There were 15 entrants and 3 of them were Striders – oh dear! However, the most pints drunk was 7 and the Striders were more reserved with just 4 pints.
The winner of the ‘race’ was Paul Fauset who visited 6 pubs and had 6 pints.
The first woman was Sally Fawcett & Kim Baxter who visited 5 pubs and consumed 1 pint.
