Thanet 10, Reindeer Run & Huntwood Ultra

Thanet Road Club 10 mile
Striders flocked to the Alan Green memorial 10 mile road race held on Sunday, 2 December.

The flat course starting at Westgate Pavillion potentially could offer the runners personal best times but the strong headwind on the course left the team battling to the finish line.

Ollie Pryer was in the top 20 recording a time of 1hr 10mins 1sec. He was closely followed by David Valenti in 1hr 10mins 39secs. 3rd clubman home was James Reeves who crossed the finish line in 1hr 12mins 29secs.

Jennifer Simpson was first club lady home in 1hr 20mins 5secs. Rebecca Still was hot on her heels in 1hr 23mins 21secs with Karen Seymour just 2mins behind in 1hr 25mins 8secs.
