Deal Castle 5 Mile, Howletts 5k & Bideford 10 Mile

After the apocalyptic conditions of the Beachy Head Marathon last week, it was a far more sedate affair this weekend with a handful of striders taking part in races around the county.

Richard Millns was the first strider home at the Deal Castle 5 mile, a fast and flat out-and-back race along the coast, in 42mins56secs, closely followed by first lady strider Heather Glass in 43min25secs.

Another half dozen Striders took to the wild to run the Howletts 5k run, which winds its way around the animal reserve. Father and Son team Sean and Jack Bootes crossed the line in near-identical times of 26mins3secs and 26mins2secs respectively, and first strider across the line was Gemma Peatey in 27min59secs
