It being close to home, I popped along to Narabeen to watch and ensure a 100m relay happened (having run the Striders 10K at Lane Cove in the morning, as did Hannah Gibson and Emma McGlinn). In the 100m Bethany ran 13:90, Ben Carter 14:30 and brother Tom 13:09. In the 400m, Tessa ran 1:03:78, Ben C. 1:02:24, Tom C. 58:82 and Gabe Corke a blistering 52:78. In the 1500m Amelia ran 5:14, Bethany 5:26, Joe Burgess 4:24 and Jason (the older bloke in the relay) ran 4:40. I don't think any juniors went to Campbelltown. So.... well done one and all!

October27th 2012 Club Premiership at Bankstown and Illawong.
It was lovely to have enough juniors at Bankstown to run a 100m relay, with Joe Burgess making his debut as a Sydney Strider. We had a bit of baton trouble (dropping it), so came last, but ran very well. Bethany did the 60m, the 200m, the 800m (2:22) and her first ever 2K steeplechase. Her brother Adam did his first steeplechase too - this is becoming the Striders flagship event. I also ran it, as did Hannah Gibson with a PB of 7:08. Joe became the junior club's fastest 800m runner to date with a time of 2:03:44. Tessa Constantine went all the way to Illawong and ran 2:31 in the 800m and 1:15 in the 400m hurdles. Great work Striders!!!!!!! Next Saturday pm. you can race at Narabeen and Campbelltown.

Kombat All Schools state championships were held over the 4 day period 11 - 14 Oct.
Although this is a schools event and not a Junior Striders event, athletes can choose to wear their Striders top instead of their school top. We are delighted when they do this - it shows great club loyalty! Email in your picture: a picture speaks 1000 words
