Perfect running conditions greeted 140 runners at the inaugural Whixley 10k. Striders made up 10% of the starting field, with 14 members in attendance.
The course was very much multi-terrain and was a good test for the winter trail shoes that were coming out of hibernation!
The first 3 Striders home were split by only 3 seconds. Andy Robinson (41:28) was in a photo finish with the ever youthful Ian Mitchell (41:29) and they were closely followed by Guy Close (41:31). James Wright (43:13) was next across the finish line, with Phil Cornforth (44:07) 5th Strider back. A close knit pack of female Striders came in just over the 50 minute mark. They were led home by Sue Morley (50:07), with Nicky Christie (50:24) and Anna Cornforth (50:52). They were joined at the event by club coach Eric Morley (53:09), Tony Everitt (55:18), Tom Burell (56:37), Lucy Cartwright (57:42), Tracy Allison (58:16), Andrea Price (59:01) and Alison Jackson (01:04:15).
