Two half marathons kept St Albans Striders busy this week – but both produced a number of personal bests
Twenty took part in the first ever Herts Half, held at Knebworth, with Jamie Sinclair’s time of one hour 31 minutes the quickest of the PBs.
Jay A’Court, Robin Newby and Emma Jardine, who was also the first female Strider to finish, also went quicker than ever before.
Daniel Langton was the first male Strider home.
The event offered some Striders a chance to run their first half marathon.
