Three Striders made their way to the National Watersports Centre for the Notts AAA ten mile road race – Stuart Gregory, John Houghton and Louise Houghton, all hoping for a great run.
John Houghton was first Strider back to cross the finish line in 1hr 14m 19s 175th overall after 10 miles, 4 of which were in torrential rain. Not too far behind was Louise Houghton, finishing in even worse conditions in 1hr 20m 58s 230th overall and 7th lady vet 45.
Meanwhile after a shockingly slow start and getting lapped after just 3.5 miles Stuart Gregory had finally picked up the pace as he enter the final 5 miles and began to make up for a lot of lost time early on to complete the course and second 5 miles in 45 minutes and crossed the line in terrible weather conditions in a time of 1hr 45m 09s 331st overall, his second worst time and worst ever finishing position in this event.
