Folkestone 10 Mile

Despite seasonally appropriate Biblical rain, three Sittingbourne Striders decided to put on their racing shoes and take on the Folkestone 10-mile running race held on Good Friday, 30 March 2018.

Liz Weeks, Ronald Smith and Alison Davey all donned their Striders racing vests in the 10-mile event which took runners from Folkestone to Hythe.

First back was Liz, deciding to get out of the rain as quickly as possible, returning a time of 1.03.12. This saw her take to the podium as second placed woman in the event with the added bonus of a trophy for first in her age group (V35).

Next back was Ronald in a very good time of 1.35.57. Unfortunately on this occasion Alison did not finish, however it is early season with many events to come.

After the race Liz said: “It was a fast flat out and back course, but the strong headwind and heaving rain made it a very challenging run.”
