Saffron Striders strode out on one of the hottest days of the year to compete in 10k races around the county on Sunday.

The championship race at Henham drew the most runners, with Fiona Halls the first woman home in 42 minutes 44 seconds.

Nigel Coates, Matthew Billis and Kate Holden also put in strong performances and with six championship races to go, Joe Hall and Alan Jones continue their duel for top spot. Jones (right) finished 21 seconds ahead of his rival in their latest outing.

Meanwhile, at nearby Quendon and Rickling, Darren Barnes was the first Striders’ member home in 42.12, while Toby Lumsden crossed the line at Steeple Bumpstead in 45.45.

Saffron Striders meet outside the Lord Butler Fitness & Leisure Centre every Tuesday evening at 7.45pm for an 8pm start. All abilities are welcomed.
