For the third athletics fixture of the season Striders joined St Albans Athletics Club to take part in the senior league.
This is a great opportunity for the two clubs, who share the same home ground, to come together and share expertise.This was demonstrated in the men’s 5000m where Striders Paul Adams and Tom Crouch dominated the field who had come from High Wycombe, Luton and Ipswich.
It was not just in track events that the Striders competed as John Ockendon showed style in both the high jump and long jump to secure vital points for the club and help earn overall third position in a very tight competition.
More success in the endurance events went to Ben Clarke and Tabitha Weddell, both U17, in the steeplechase, who both won their races. The women’s 4x400 relay narrowly missed out on first but with this being a new squad there is a lot more to come.
Ayo Byom and Cameron Mckie were dominant in the men’s 110m Hurdles, as was Alicia Tyman McEwan in the ladies’ race. There were also strong performances in the 400 hurdles from Christian Gaddes and Ailsa Mckie.
