Race Report: Sandwell Six Towns 30/08/2015

I ran this event last year with several other striders. This year after a week off I opted to enter late and up my mileage for August which following this run would top 200 miles for the first time ever. 
A plea to see if any of my running buddies were having a go soon got a response from fellow strider Craig. This was good as the last time I ran a distance event with Craig was the Sandstone ultra and we had a bit of a giggle as well as Ice creams that day. With Craig using the event as training for the Round Rotherham 50 and me just using it as a miles on the clock/ chalk another off the list we opted to just go and have some fun.

Race Report: Birchwood 10k 23/08/2015

Five Sandbach Striders headed north on Sunday morning to join around a thousand runners taking part in a 10K race. The event took place in and around Birchwood, starting near the railway station and shopping centre.

The weather was warm, humid and windy – not ideal running conditions (for me anyway!).
