Race report week ended 26 March 2023

St Albans Striders dominated proceedings at the Herts and Middlesex Vets Cross Country Championships. The recent rain meant there was plenty of mud on offer at the season finale at Cassiobury Park in Watford.

Phillip Evans won the event overall. Phillip was joined by Christian Kurek, Gavin Murrison and Richard Evans to take team gold in the M40 category. Not to be outdone, Nigel Aston, Steve Scorer, Jonathan Bird and Gavin Clifton also took gold in the M50 category. Meanwhile, Colin Braybrook, Andrew Dobinson and Adrian Jones completed a Striders clean sweep of the gold medals in the M60+ category.

Back on the roads, eight Striders proved their stamina over the challenging Oakley 20 mile event in Bedfordshire. Howard Bull completed the course in a PB of 2:37:32.

Elsewhere, Callum Bond was fleet of foot as he smashed his PB in a time of 1:28:24 at the Fleet Half Marathon.
