Shaun Phoenix took the trip to Spain to compete in the only night marathon in Europe, the EDP Bilbao Night Marathon. Shaun completed the race in a PB (personal best) time of 3:22:19.
Back on home turf, Carol Foster, Nicola Howath, Kerry Riley and Gary Eccles braved the wind and mud to compete in the last of the Warrington Running Club 5 mile series at Colliers Moss. Carol was the first Strider to finish the race in 45:47.
On Sunday 22nd October, Striders took on the Grim Reaper at the 10k race at Croxteth park. This was the second race of the weekend for Carol Foster and Nicola Howath, who finished the race in 54:17 and 55.04 respectively. Neil Hunter also completed the race in 42.23.
A special mention goes to Strider’s Daniel Cheetham who was the first mortal to finish the race (only beaten by the Reaper himself!) in a PB time of 38:35.
