In the Club competition Cybi’s men finished 9th out of 49 clubs, with some excellent running by all, results for all Cybi Striders below
While some club members were doing what most would class fairly long races at the weekend, one of our runners Ian Ferguson decided that he fancied something a little more challenging and so competed in the Escape from Meriden 36 hour chained event. They manged 105 miles and as a chained pair got 60 miles away from Meriden, in horrendous weather conditions but unfortunately had to pull out at 5:30 am on the Sunday morning. Thant is still some going, well done Ian
