6 June 2015 – No Walk in the Park

Stuart Gregory was the only Strider to make the trip to Chesterfield for the sixth race in the series. As there were a number of other races taking place that day the field was surprisingly only very slightly depleted with 86 runners taking part on a very windy morning. Stuart started the race at a steady pace for the first 2km, before slowing down markedly at the 3km point, he then continued with the slower pace until 4km, before lifting the pace slowly over the final 1000m with a 200m sprint finish, to finish in a time of 29.23 and 78th place, his worst time and finishing position in the monthly series to date, in his first competitive race in nearly three week.  [Stuart]
