• Rachel and Colin claim Striders records

    Rachel Lindley, from Striders of Croydon, had a very good run in the Cambridge Half-Marathon on Sunday. She recorded a personal best of 89 minutes 04 seconds, lifting her to fifth place in Striders’ all-time women’s rankings. She finished 178th in a field of over 3300 runners, and was the 13th woman to finish.

    Striders’ best performances in the local parkruns on Saturday came from their over-50s. Nigel Finch was eighth overall, and second in the over-50 category, in the Riddlesdown parkrun, recording 20 minutes 56 seconds. Geoff Pennells was tenth overall, and also second in the over-50 category, in the parkrun at Lloyd Park (21.54).
