Swift Striding at Sessay!

A swift trip to Sessay…

Congratulations to our contingent of nineteen Striders who made the short trip to Sessay Swift last night for round 10 of our Ben Campbell Club Championship.

The fast fast tarmac route over the unconventional distance of 6K had many competitors scratching their heads as to how to approach the event, but mutterings around the start-line seemed to be mostly ‘like a parkrun, but with an extra bit..’. Our Striders did themselves proud, not only as the third biggest-represented club on the night, but also finishing a close second in the Mens’ team event behind a very strong Leeds AC team. Tom Calvert was our lead man home in an excellent 20:25, building on his recent parkrun form, whilst Nicola Carter clocked a great 26:44 to lead our squad of nine ladies in.

What does it mean for our club championship? Well we’ll have to process the results and age adjustments first, but it now looks like the Men’s championship is going to be a really close-run thing (no pun intended) and might well go right to the fifteenth and final round, whilst we may have a new leader in another category! Watch this space for updates very soon!


Our championship moves onto Round 11 at Wetherby 10k on Sunday 1st September – only 40 places are left so if you still wish to enter you’d best get your skates on. Or maybe race shoes. Visit: Wetherby 10K
