A large group of Striders and family took on the Doncaster 10K in ideal running conditions on Sunday and there are plenty of fast times and PBs to report.

Next to finish at Doncaster Racecourse was Karen Illsley 57:14, followed along the final furlong by Kath Scott who was delighted with a new PB of 57:18 and Nicole Henderson, who also got a PB, 58:12. Helen McGrory was next in 58:17, Stacey Atkins 59:51, Sara Whittaker 1:00:45 and Heather Green 1:02:15.

Two Striders were in Half Marathon action, Dawn Hollingworth was very pleased with 2:04:49 at Clowne and Sara Webb got a great time of 2:22:56 at the Silverstone circuit. Bonnie Tinsley was at Silverstone too, for the 10K race and took the chequered flag in 57:02 for a new PB.
To Newark Parkrun and we had fewer runners than usual as it was a Striders takeover week, with club members filling all of the volunteer positions.
Well done to all who ran or supported this weekend.
