Following the heat of the Hungarton 7, the LRRL summer league returned with the 5 mile race in Huncote, the Joy Cann 5. Cooler, overcast weather greeted the runners, with a sharp shower thrown in just as many runners were approaching the finish.
Making the most of the conditions on this undulating, but relatively flat, road course was Jason Barton who ran another PB to finish 6th Senior Male (8th position overall) in 27.41. Also representing the Striders mens team were Luke Eggleston (32.58 PB), Rich Gray (34.11), Tam Nicol (35.29), Nicholas Smith (36.50 PB) and Stuart Gregory (46.10).
Striders’ ladies team was led home by Abi Arnott in 37.38 (PB), closely followed by Lou Houghton (37.56) and Celina Silver (44.16).
