    had a total of 71 finishers in the various weekly parkruns (27 at Lloyd Park and 44 at other venues).
    In the Surrey Schools Cross-Country Championships, at Reigate on Saturday, Christopher Finch ran well to
    place 29th of 96 finishers in the under-13 boys’ race, recording 12 minutes 50 seconds. His older sister Lucy
    Finch was 88th in the junior girls’ race.
    This Saturday (26th) Striders will be competing in the South of England Cross-Country Championships, at
