Saffron Striders Athletics Club proved welcoming hosts at the third of four Inter-County Cross-Country races on Sunday.

Staging the event at the Joyce Franklin Academy in Newport, club members took on rivals from Harlow, Bishops Stortford, Ware and Hoddesdon.

And after battling their way around a four-and-a-half mile course, along waterlogged fields between Newport and Wendens Ambo, they saw Andrew Mynott lead the Striders contingent home.

Bishops Stortford’s Andrew Bosher was the overall race winner on the day, while David Raimondo, Iain Macdougal, Baz Taylor, Martin Green and Nigel Coates were among some of the faster runners for Striders.

Meanwhile, Fiona Halls and Fliss Tournant produced impressive finishes for Striders in the women’s event.

The next race is at Harlow on February 11.
