The Sittingbourne Striders 10 mile road race was the best ever, we had a record number of entries totalling 423 and the runners were set off by Kirsty a Demelza House representative.
The running conditions were perfect, a warm sunny day which also brought out many spectators which added to the great atmosphere.
The club are grateful to all the sponsors this year without whom it wouldn’t be possible to stage this event. Beadles Skoda very kindly provided the lead car which led the runners on the 10 miles route through Rodmersham, Kingsdown, Doddington and back to Highsted School.
The Main race was won by Anthony Jackson of Sittingbourne Striders in a time of 56:56 and the first lady home was Hazel Behagg of Dartford Road Runners in 1:09:15. Both the men & women’s team prizes were won by Dartford Road Runners. The prizes were presented by Dave Buckley of D.Buckley Ltd Plumbing and Heating, the main race sponsor. All the finishers received a medal with a matching T-shirt plus a goodie bag.
There was a Fun Run in aid of Demelza house which had 86 runners aged from 7 months to 44 years. The winners were, 0-4 years, Lucy Booker and Ben Foreman, 5-7 years Callum Drake and Sofia Ellis, 8-11 Harrison and Gabriela Deevoy, 12-16 Luke Stringer and Alexandra Baker Jones. The race raised in excess of £300 and was enjoyed by all, including Strider bear.
