2 May 2015 – No walk in the park race 5

Stuart was the only Strider to make the trip to Chesterfield for race five in the series, having gone backwards regularly since race two, Stuart turned up to the event not knowing what his time would be, and with the events of the previous day fresh in his mind, Stuart needed to let of some steam, and with the race quickly splitting in two Groups Stuart headed up the second Group of runners for three of the four laps and was ahead of his PB on lap two by nearly 30 seconds, this came down markedly on lap three, before a faster paced final lap saw Stuart regain some time to finish in 73rd out of 98 in a PB time of 26.29 14 seconds faster than his previous best for the distance.  [Stuart]
