11 Oct – Coalville 10k

Stuart Gregory was the only Stilton Strider to enter the Coalville 10km which takes place in the grounds of Snibston Country Park. The two lap course involves short sharp hills, gravel and tarmac paths, muddy footpaths and a small meadow just for good measure. As there were a number of other races on nearby numbers were surprisingly slightly up this year as Stuart set off with 106 other runners hoping to triumph. At the half way point Stuart was already over a minute and half down on his time from last year and this continued on the second lap as he crossed the finish line in 58th place 16 places down on the previous year with a time of 1hr 01m 12s some 2 minutes 56 seconds down on the previous year.  [Stuart]
