Race Results – Double or Quit & Derby Running Festival – 26/27th Aug 2023

Last weekend we had 3 Striders Chris Halliday, Liz Phillips and Matt Henning, taking on Heanor RC’s Double or Quit race. This is an unusual event in that you enter and start the race, then at the halfway 5 mile point you can decide to go again or quit! All 3 of our Striders went for the 5 mile option, though I think this would have been planned rather than quitting :) Great running all with Chris coming in 3rd place overall and Liz 4th lady!

Then on the Sunday at Elvaston Castle it was time for the Derby Running Festival, where you can choose 5k, 10k or the half marathon. We had 2 Striders who opted for the half – Paul Roome and Chris Halliday again – 2 days in a row! Paul did his half as a ‘training race’ and did 1 mile intervals throughout I believe, and Chris got his half marathon PB! Brilliant running both of you!
