Scoring
First 5 men and first 5 ladies to count with every other finisher scoring 1 point for their club.

2018 team winners are once again Cambridge & Coleridge. Despite strong performances and our biggest , the men finished 6th and the women were joint 5th with Haverhill Running Club.  We are up against some of the fastest runners across the region, including GB juniors so still a fantastic achievement by all runners, with some fantastic individual performances! Well done to all Saffron Striders who took part,  100 runners in all, with many runners setting new PBs and running their very first 5k for us. Only 7  Striders managed to completed all 6 races: Michael Bradley, Nikki Coutts, Mark Fitzhenry, Fiona Halls, Neil Hall, Alan Jones, and Robert Shaw. Congratulations to Nikki and Neil awarded the best Strider’s female and male trophies for running all 6 races, overall improvement and performance.

The overall best female performance went to Rebecca White with the lowest score for 5/6 races. Well done Rebecca.
