It was the 10th anniversary of the Stathern Festival last weekend and possibly the last ever. During the two weeks of fetes, shows and celebrations, this little village plays host to a flat-ish road race – Stathern 10k. Perfect running conditions greeted a smaller field than usual with only 62 competitors taking part.
The first Strider home was Jason Barton who finished in 2nd place in a time of 35:41. In 22nd place was MRC and parkrun regular Matt White finishing in a time of 44:43. 2nd Strider back was Tony Allen finishing in 34th in a time of 50:22 and Stuart Gregory was the final Strider to finish in 57th place in a time of 1:01:51.
Nicholas Smith and Celina Silver, who were running for their first claim club Stamford Striders, both finished well with Nicholas in 26th with 45:56, and Celina finished in 44th place with a time of 54:21. [Jay]
