11 June 2015 – Leicester City 5k

Four striders – Jay Barton, Matt Gayton, Darren Glover and Stuart Gregory –  made the trip to Leicester along with 100 others for the second race in the Leicester City 5km series on a sunny Leicestershire evening. Jay Barton, who had already shown good form in the first race of the series, made light work of the 5km course as he pushed ahead from the early stages finishing third overall in a time of 17.29.  He was followed little more than two minutes later by Mat Gayton 19.38 14th place overall, who held on by 6 seconds ahead of Darren Glover 19.44 15th place and first vet 40.  Stuart Gregory rounded off the quartet with a time of 28.01 71st place much better than his performance the previous day. 

In a very close fight Stilton Striders were also crowned the overall team champions on the night, to round off a good evening by all Striders.  [Stuart]
