A fun evening saw 21 runners (19 Striders and two members of Durham City Harriers, one of whom was just passing and was persuaded to join in) take on the downhill course past Old Durham Gardens in two races.
Well done to James on his fantastic 4:20 time, and Sarah who was clearly very proud (justifiably!) of her 6:55.
To put these figures in to context, the current world marathon best times were run at these incredible paces:
- Men (Eliud Kipchoge): 4:37.2 mins / mile
- Women (Brigid Kosgei): 5:06.8 mins / mile
We can but dream.
Thank you to Wendy, Michael, Jan, Emma, Stephen, Faye, Lisa and Phil, who helped to organise, marshal, time and record the results.
