Sam Jackson was the fastest runner on the night with a time of 15:57. A massive 5k PB for him and a time that’s earned him a podium in the club records. 3rd fastest 5k race time ran by a Strider!
Emma Thompson was fastest lady with a storming time of 19:39!
Equally important though, of the participants that submitted their times before the night, I reckon 70% beat their expectations.
Biggest top 3 margins between submitted times and result was Jan Ellis whose time was over 2 minutes faster than she expected and Paul Wilkinson and Marika Kostusiak who both took very nearly 2 minutes off their PBs!
These astounding achievements were made through sheer grit and determination and fantastic teamwork.
Timing, assembly, results, photography, pacing, cheering, raffle ticket selling – thank you all! You made the night happen!!
As a club, we raised £104 for If U Care Share foundation. Thank you Anna Linfoot for your generosity that sparked the raffle.
