It was a week of spookiness and personal bests for Striders.
This week began with Striders going all out to scare the locals of Chester. A dozen or so scary Striders donned Halloween costumes and ran a 10k night run around the city taking in haunted buildings and spooky graveyards stopping for scary stories along the way. Striders recovered by being suitably refreshed in the Brewery Tap, an old medieval hall, and consuming some fine ales. A spookily great night was had by all!
