Wakefield 10km - Sunday 30th March 2008 (full results)

Report by our own correspondent

Wakefield on Sunday: Windy, warm (compared to what we've been experiencing recently) and virtually invisible kilometre markers (except the 5km marker which was in the wrong place) were sound excuses for yet another crap run.

Stuart Croydon ran a pb though by one second - he was complaining but I'd love to run 34 minutes again!

Massive field for a 10km with over 1,200 competitors with some fairly quick boys at the front. As a result ran first 2km too quick - at the bollard as some bloke tries to push his way in - "Don't you shove me" I said. Just like driving on the M1. Well I beat him by a street so that'll teach him but what a poor time - too much adrenaline early on. A course which would be described by those on form as fast but to us fat gits it had two hills in it - even so it should have been a quick one except for the wind. Well organised but a shortage of bogs and someone nicked my Bolsover 10km T-shirt which I left on a hedge at the start.

National X-Country Chamionships - Saturday 23rd February 2008 (full results)

Report by Carol Beattie

Striders yellow and green vests featured again at this prestigious event with the same men's team as at the Northern Champs, but only one woman (unfortunately Alison Barrett was injured and could not run).  The weather was perfect - mild and dry with only a light wind and the ground was mainly firm but with some very muddy sections.  The course, at first glance, looked not too bad, but there was a hidden killer hill, which the men had to haul themselves up three times - the women twice.  Distances were 12k (male) and 8k (female) but the times suggest that they were a bit less than that!  There were 500 finishers in the senior women's race and 1244 in the men's.  Striders men finished 82nd out of 99 teams  - another great effort!

Tigger Tor Fell Run - Sunday 27th January 2008 (full results)

Report by Pete Brown

There were three hundred and nine finishers of this ten mile, 2,200 foot jaunt over Burbage Moor and Higger Tor won in a terrain boggling 66 mins 30 secs. With some heavy rain on the days before the event, there were horror predictions that athletes would be sinking up to their waist in the peat bog but fortunately these failed to materialise although the double crossing of Burbage Brook was rather wet

Northern X-Country Chamionships - Saturday 26th January 2008 (full results)

Report by Carol Beattie

Striders was valiantly represented by six men and two women in Roundhay Park in Leeds at the Northern Cross Country Championships on a dry and mild, but very windy Saturday in January.  The course was undulating and with a steep camber in parts and there was one big hill - 'Hill 60'.  The women's race was 3 laps (approx 8k) and the men's was 5 laps (approx 12k). The men's team were 46th out of 53 - a great effort in such a competetive race - well done to them.

Hit the Trail 5, Reddish - Sunday 13th January 2008 (full results)

Report by Carol Beattie

This was quite a tough trail race in Reddish Vale Country Park, near Stockport, organised by Belle Vue Racers.  It had a long pull near the start and a few steep climbs followed by equally steep descents, plus a sting in the tail of an uphill finish. Nice and muddy as well after all the rain on Friday!

Yorkshire X-Country Championships - Saturday 5th January 2008

Report by Dave Birch

Striders continued what has become their traditional appearance at these Championships with the required six male runners ensuring a placing in the team event. Unfortunately the placing achieved was 19th from 19 complete teams. There were, however, mitigating circumstances. Despite the presence of Ben Beattie, the average age of the team was probably one of the oldest in what is, after all, an Open event. In addition, Ian Stinson ran despite being at the end of a period of illness, and so placed lower than may otherwise have been the case. The female team only required three to count, but sadly only the duo of Carole Beattie and Alison Barrett toed the line, so no place was secured in the team event. Nevertheless, all eight gave their all, and flew the green & yellow flag with gusto.

The Men's race was over 11.2 K, consisting of 5 undulating laps of heavy going, in windy conditions. 5 laps meant, of course, that the likes of the Striders team were lapped by the leaders flying past. The standard can be judged by the fact that Martin Broadhead of Hallamshire, who won the Bridlington Half Marathon in October, placed 44th !

The women's race was approx. 5.5km, and Alison and Carole were in fine fettle. Indeed, Alison had the great distinction of placing one position and four seconds ahead of Veronique Marot, winner in 2:25 of the 1989 London Marathon! Well done Alison. 101 finished in the womens race and 182 in the mens race.
