Lisburn had Scrabo Striders running in circles!

Posted: 6/8/2020

On Saturday 1st August the second race of the ChampionChip Ireland Series took place at EIKON in Lisburn. This was a chance for all those athletes who have been training hard over lockdown to finally get an opportunity to race in either a 5K, 10K or half marathon. Visiting athletes from England, Scotland and Wales took part. It was a very warm day, but this didn’t stop some of the Scrabo Striders achieving outstanding PBs!

In the half marathon first over the line for the Striders was Thomas Steele with new Personal Best of 1:25:37 - Thomas knocked 4 minutes off his previous PB! Thomas was followed shortly by Norman Mawhinney in another fantastic time of 1:27:40.

In the 10K race we had Dave Stevenson who crossed the line with another PB in 38:31 and Nikki Keery in 1:02:38, both shaving off 2 ½ minutes off their previous PBs!

Finally, in the 5K we had the husband and wife duo Dave and Liz Turton: Dave came in on 24:46 closely followed by Liz in 25:02.

The third race of the ChampionChip Ireland Series will take place next weekend at Glenarm.
