Fastest for the men was Steve Read, in sixth position, followed by Paul McKenna, Jason Wintin, Dan Reynolds, David Spencer, Ashwin Shah and Ian Baines.

For the women, team points were scored by Jane Smith, Hayley Smith, Gillian Robertson and Tara Corbett.

GFDR’s men finished third behind Leigh-on-Sea Striders and Springfield Striders.

The final race in the series will be held at Little Baddow on February 16.
