Seventeen Striders turned out for a summer sprint through Deeping in the latest Championship race on Sunday (May 19).

Their ladies picked up two prizes with Maggie Skinner finishing third woman and Vicky Old scooping second FV35 in her first race in that category.

The first four Striders finished in the top 50 out of a field of more than 200 runners. Plenty of Personal Bests were also set by the Striders who enjoyed the brief spell of sunshine.

James Skinner was fastest Strider on the day, 26th overall with a time of 40m47s, followed by: Stuart Hill (30th in 41.20), Maggie Skinner (41.30), Vicky Old (42.58), Cor Derks (44.20), Adam Fenn (45.24), Barry Daff (46.25), David Andrews (46.46), Steve Roberts (46.54), Ed Fancourt (47.17), Terry Cross (49.42), Amy Williamson (49.50), Gary Heath (52.04), Vanessa McKinnon (52.39), Steve Crooks (52.44), Alan Gray (55.39) and Leah Faulkner 56.59.

Jim Morris finished sixth at the Brathay Windermere Marathon and second in his category MV45 in 2:59:05.

Incredibly 14 of the 700-strong field were completing their 10th lap of the 26.2mile course in as many days.
