Saffron Striders athletes turned their attentions to the start of the new Inter-County Cross-Country league season at Ware on Sunday.

Hundred of runners took on the muddy five-mile route around some of the public bridleways, including no fewer than 20 Striders.

Alex Smith made his debut for the club and finished in an impressive ninth place in a time of 31 minutes 19 seconds.

Ian McDougal, Fiona Halls, Matt Billis and Nigel Coates also finished strongly for Striders against rivals from the likes of Ware Joggers, Bishop’s Stortford and Harlow Town.

Guy Treymeyne, Kate Holden, Alan Jones, James Hewlett and Michael Bradley were also in action for Saffron Walden, in what proved to be a good turnout for the club in their first fixture of the winter season.
