Sunday was host to the 10th annual Steve Prescott St.Helens 10k. Always a popular event on our doorstep it was no surprise we had another mass turnout with almost 100 club runners donning their vests to participate and also act as pacers for all runners on the course. Striders I addition also helped to raise £144 in memory of Violet Grace by pinning violet coloured ribbons to their vests.
Some special mentions goes to firstly James Allen and Kelly Hamilton who finished with podium positions. James was overall 3rd Male in a flat 35:00 whilst Kelly 1st lady in 40:18.
New PB’s were made on Sunday also by David Wilson in 35:37, Anthony Cheers 40:55, Mark Hamilton in 45:34, and Nicky Donovan in 55:03.
Meanwhile Paul Demore was 3rd in his Vet 50 age category in a speedy 40:54
Slightly fewer numbers but keeping each other company Rebecca McKenna and Racheal Tickle ventured across the Mersey to complete the Tunnel 10k also.
