SAFFRON Strider Steve White's continued assault on Lancastrian Fell Races resulted in his best ever result as he took first place in his age category.

The Eddie's Revenge Fell Race is a tough four-mile course with the runners having to cope with more than 1000ft of climbing.

Five striders were in action of the Newmarket 10K. Stephane Toussenel marked his debut with an impressive 32nd in a time of 41min 17sec. Chris Gibson took 146th position whilst John Howe and Carole Wigley came home in 174th place. Performance of the day was undoubtedly achieved by Liz Shields who set a new personal best of 1hr 18sec.

The Felsted 10K saw four Saffron Striders participate on the quick course in the Essex countryside.

This year has seen Chris Dodge firmly establish himself as Striders' star speedster and he claimed 29th position in a time of 37min 47sec. Danny Collins took 76th position with a sub-42 minute time and fresh from his success at the Walden Triathlon, Tony Davison finished in 171st place with a time of 47 minutes.

John Howe in his 14th race of the year recorded an admirable time of 57min 06sec.

The Saffron Walden 10K will take place on Sunday September 30, 2007. Entry forms are available from the Striders website www.saffronstriders.org.uk, from Runnerway in Cromwell Road or by calling 01799 500109.
