Weekend Race Results

1 July 2018 - By Steve Hennings

Springfield Striders Friday 5 – The Barry White Memorial Race

“My first, my last ……” Quite an evening for a small, but perfectly formed, group of 7 members in some hot and challenging conditions with Witham RC bookending the race.

Rachel Sweatt was 1st Lady home picking up £25 in prize money, along with another Club Record, with a time of 0:29:27. Gerry Greenwold smashed his PB by over a minute, with Kev Harper & Ross Silverton recording season best times. Ross was 1st back in his age group, but as he left early someone else got given his prize of a box of tea bags!!

Last up (literally) was Martina Hennings who kept the tail cyclist company, making sure everyone else got home safe.
