A massive team from the Striders turned out for this event with 44 members turning out to actually take part – with others helping with the organisation. Apparently Derwent also had 44 turn out and on the day managed ONE more run than Shelton! The final result was: Shelton Striders 510 marbles in the bucket, Derwent Runners 511 and Team Derby Runner 192.
If just ONE member hadn’t had a daughter’s gig to attend… Sorry guys!

It was a very wet night, all ages and abilities were there, a non-runner from each club gave out the marbles to an opposite club member. For us our non-runner was Graham Donald, a special mention to him for standing in the rain at the bottom of the hill giving out marbles.
In the end a huge £342 was raised for charity – which is what the event was really all about.
A very grateful mention to Dave Nunn for organising what was (from what everyone involved has been saying) a fantastic night of running again.
