Athletics: Beginners group impress for Saffron Striders
PUBLISHED: 12:30 18 July 2018
Saffron Striders beginners group took on the Kevin Henry 5k League meeting at Carver Barracks last week.
The race signalled the end of their 10-week training under coach Mike Bradley, with each doing themselves proud to seal a fifth-placed finish.
That allowed Striders to maintain their place in the table with two races left and the club hopes to see many of the beginners back at the Fast 5 Mile race.
Striders host the event at Carver Barracks on September 30 and it is open to allcomers. The club meets outside the Lord Butler Fitness & Leisure Centre every Tuesday at 7.45pm for an 8pm start, all welcome.
