7 Dec 2016 – Leicester City 5k

On Wednesday evening a small group of Stilton Striders travelled to Leicester for the 2nd round of the Victoria Park 5k winter series.

A 2 lap course around Victoria Park some parts darker than others ( pitch black actually ) first back in 4th place overall in a fantastic time of 17min 05 secs was Jason Barton, followed by Darren Glover in 18.56 in 12th ( 3rd veteran), then Clive Kent in 20.13 in 16th, first lady back for the club Vicki Lowe in 23.05 (2nd vet 45 ) in 28th place followed by Liz Goodbourn 24.01 in 32nd ( first vet 50 ) then Theresa Coltman in 24.33 in 35th ( 3rd vet 50 ) and with the ladies winning the team prize the club came away with 6 bottles of wine, oh and a handful each of mince pies.
Special thanks must go to the organisers @niceworkrun team who because of traffic problems, M1 blocked etc, endured a 12 hour round trip to put the event on.   [Darren]
