Striders Make History in Blackpool
Saturday 9th September 2017 will be a day that lives forever in the Penny Lane Striders history books. 29 athletes attended the NW Road Relays in Stanley Park and reached new heights in this event. The Women's A team, consisting of Lauren Wilson, Katie Johnson and Hazel Batty came home in first place overall to earn the Gold Medal for the first time in the club's history. The girls were also breaking participation records by putting out three complete teams! There were amazing runs from Annemarie Williams, Pam Thurtle, Claire Meadows, Louise Davison, Charlotte Radcliffe and Skipper Helen Osborne.
The Men also set new records as the A team brought home a medal for the third time in four years. Superb running across the four legs from Martin Swenson, Chris Maher, Jay Clarke and Alex Cowin. With four other teams also giving an excellent account of themselves, PLS we're certainly a force to be reckoned with!
Bring on Manchester!!!
