Woodchester Park Trail Race 8th September 2019

On a beautiful, early autumn Sunday morning, four Striders tested their mettle through the picturesque valley setting of the Woodchester Park trail race, hosted by Stroud AC. 

The challenging eight-mile race followed paths weaving up and down the steep valley sides, culminating in a tough uphill finish. 

Helen Knight led the club home to finish as 3rd lady overall and first in her LV40 category in a time of 61:00. She was followed by Gavin Jerman in a time of 63:44. Both Helen and Gavin have completed all three races in Stroud AC’s ‘Roger Briers’ series this year.

Amelia Mullins finished as 6th lady overall and 1st in her LV45 category in a time of 65:00 and Nicola Weager, continuing her return to form, in a time of 70:40.

Helen, Amelia and Nicola also won the ladies team competition on the day.
