A spectacular weekend all round for the St Albans Striders.
Saturday saw James McMurray bag a new 5K PB of 14:27 at the Trafford Grand Prix BMC race.
Andrew McKillop completed the Thames Path 100 mile ultra in 18h45m to finish 24th overall and 1st “gent of a certain age” (v50).
Mark Kennedy came third overall in the 90mile 16,000ft of ascent in the Dales Highway Race with a finish time of 22h57m.
After having to find a new venue within 24hours, ATW was able to host their popular Hatfield 5M at the Bovingdon race circuit on Sunday. Will Bowran took third place with a new lifetime PB 5 mile time of 25:32, while Paul Greaves (29:31 for 5 miles V50) and John Cooper (30:56 for 5 miles V60) both broke club records.
