STILTON Striders Neil Jaggard and Gary Christmas were in Lincolnshire again on Saturday for another cross country challenge.
They took part in the Caythorpe Canter, a multi-terrain half-marathon for walkers and runners on minor roads, farm tracks and footpaths. In bright sunshine, but with a deceptively cool breeze, conditions were near perfect and, following last week’s rain, the ground was softer underfoot.
More than 100 competitors began with around 70 runners among them. First Strider home was Neil who finished ninth in 1hr 44min 20secs, while Gary finished 36th with a time of 2hr 5min 38secs.
