The 2009-10 cross country season started with an excellent turnout of 19 Striders at yesterday’s Sherman Cup in South Shields.
On a wet and windy day no less than seven Striders made their x/c debuts (five women and two men) with debutant Phillip Sanderson finishing 7th overall and leading the Striders men home while Mudwoman herself, in pouring rain, was first lady Strider home.
This was a great start to the season and everyone seemed to have a good time in the tent and out on the course in spite of the hostile weather. Elvet Eats were in full swing and barely a crumb was left when the tent was dismantled.
See you all at Farringdon for the first Harrier League fixture on Saturday 28 November.
Thanks to Phil Owen for the photos.
