A warm and sunny Sunday morning greeted the runners at the final ‘winter’ league race of 2015, the West End 8. One of the more challenging league courses, the first two miles are steadily uphill, followed by nearly two miles (slightly) down and then a steep hill into (and out the other side of) South Croxton. There is then around four miles of downhill and a bit of flat into the finish.
Jason Barton had another great run to finish in 46.59 (16th overall, 12th Senior Male), followed home by Luke Eggleston (54.18), who held off Greg Pettingill (3rd MV55, 54.47). Shane Sharkey (56.10), Rich Gray (58.01) and Stuart Gregory (82.26) completed the Striders contingent.
