• Damian proves his speed over hilly 5K road race

    Damian Macenhill, from Striders of Croydon, ran well to place 32nd out of 163 finishers, and second in the over-40 category, in the Wimbledon five-kilometre road race on Sunday, which incorporated the Surrey Championships. He covered the undulating course in 18 minutes 09 seconds. Club colleague Gearoid Quigley was 49th (19.12), while club secretary Chris Morton, only a week after placing fourth in the Vanguard Way Marathon, completed the scoring trio in 69th (20.16).

    On the previous day Ernie Hann was third in the weekly parkrun in Lloyd Park (19.01) with Chris Morton sixth (19.58) and Paul Finch eighth (20.25). Nigel Collins was fifth in the Riddlesdown parkrun (19.05) with Graeme Drysdale sixth (19.13). Striders had a total of 37 finishers in the various local parkruns
