Congratulations to the 32 Striders who completed this challenging 5 mile trail race. I know it’s been said before, but it was really good to get back to some racing, and seeing so many familiar faces really made it feel like some sort of normality had returned. I know that some of them were wearing different vests than when we last saw them, but we’re all just runners, aren’t we?
Even the seemingly never ending downhill start to this race didn’t make up for the inevitable uphill return – and it’s a real pull, you just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other. I’m not sure if the distance markers helped or not, but the thought of a bottle of cider at the end definitely did!
Thanks to Andy Davies, and HRRC for putting on a great race.
Ruaridh Mon-Williams of Ilkely Harriers set a new course record of 28:54, with Striders’ very own Abbie Pearse 1st woman home in 33:35 (which I think was also a course record).
