On Saturday 18th January 15 Striders took part in the Sussex Masters Cross Country Championships which were held locally at Coombes Farm. On a gruelling course – the word ‘hilly’ does not do it justice, conditions were glorious for running being cold but with bright winter sunshine. The Downland views at the top were brilliant. Everyone enjoyed their run and the new Striders Gazebo made its first appearance, which was the envy of every other club! Well done in particular to Myra who ran with a smile and to Richard Butler who made his debut in a Striders vest.
