Photo gallery: Huntingdon runner strides to victory at Stamford Striders Valentine's 30k despite stress fracture
With Aaron Scott, five-times winner of Stamford’s Valentine’s 30k, safely packed off on his honeymoon, the top spot was wide open to challengers on Sunday.
The sell-out race from Stamford out to Careby and Pickworth is known as a tough, undulating course. It attracts entrants from across the country - and a good-natured rivalry among club runners locally.
Scott’s Helpston Harrier team mates Michael Channing and Josh Lunn took second and third places this year, but it was David Hudson from Huntingdon’s BRJ Run and Tri who stormed back – despite a stress fracture - to collect first in 1hr 44mins 35secs.
