Kimberworth Striders 5 Mile Canal Race

Race Date Sunday 07 November 2021

This event, last held in November 2019, is a gem. Described by Jordan Moat as “awesome” the race raised a grand total of £505 for The British Heart Foundation in memory of Kimberworth members Ken Chapman and James Smith who both succumbed to heart issues during the last couple of years.

The race itself had a new start and finish this year due to building works at the Rotherham end of the Tinsley canal and included a loop of the Blackburn Meadows nature reserve.

Won in 29.44 by Josh Bird (BAC) our own Jordan Moat was second in 31.25, with third place and first woman going to Abbie Pearse in 32.00.

All the good training books emphasise how important it is to get the carbohydrates and protein down as soon as possible after a workout. As usual, Kimberworth pulled out all the stops to put on a superb spread at the Travellers with the tables groaning with food and all of this for your £5 entry fee.

No room at the inn? Use the chairs as well.
