It was all about 10k races for St Albans Striders this week in a number of different locations.
Tom Crouch set a new club record for the distance on the track at the Night of 10,000 PBs, hosted by Highgate Harriers.

Simon Fraser crossed the finish line in first place in a time of 36.26, closely followed by Stephen Hosty in sixth place (38.31), Doug Hobson 13th (40.17), and Colin Braybrook (43.18).
