William Strangeway stormed to success in Stamford Striders' St Valentine's 30k race on Sunday.

The Lincoln Wellington runner completed the course in 1hr 41min 32secs to finish in front of last year's winner David Hudson.

Hudson - who won the 2019 race despite a stress fracture in his foot - came home in second place in 1.43.54 which was a nearly minute faster than his winning time last year of 1.44.35.
