Five Striders were among 207 runners that took on the 4th May Day Challenge from the Leicestershire village of Woodhouse Eaves. The undulating multi-terrain 13.5ml course encompassing Bradgate and Beacon Hill parks included road, tracks, footpaths and bridleways - and despite recent rain the course wasn't too boggy underfoot, although decent conditions didn't make the hills any easier. Paul Hannah, running with a broken toe, was the first Strider home in 31st position and a time of 1:46:22 (5 minutes quicker than last year). Next was Mick Revill (40th, 1:47:40) and completing the men's line-up was Pete Thomas, a rare outing that claimed him 44th position (1:48:28). For the ladies, Amanda Hannah was 76th (1:59:07) and Sheona Revill, running with an injured heel, finished 151st (2:18:53).
