The White Horse 5k series (1 of 4) 21 May 2009
There were 8 CLC striders competing in the Whitehorse 5km road race, held in the village of Sandhurst on 21 May.</p>
The team did the club proud by achieving personal bests and club records, demonstrating their continuing improvement as the club enters its second year of existence. </p>
First home for the Striders was Richard Dare who appeared to make light work of the flat fast course, flying home in 16.52, a personal best.</p>
The ever improving Chris ?GPS? Hale was next home in 18.33, smashing his personal best and obtaining a V35 club record, proving how his dedication in training is paying off.</p>
Lee ?The Strongman? Burge also performed well. His gutsy effort saw him charge home in a more than respectable 18.58. </p>
Super speedy Liza Barry was the first lady CLC Strider to finish in a club record breaking time of 20.24. She was closely followed by Angela Puffett in an impressive 21.12 and Emma Loverage in 24.29.</p>
Also running was Darren Hale (19.45) and James Gibbs (19.52), both with strong performances.
Rachel Vines (Women’s vice captain)
The course consisted of a small run out from the White Horse restaurant to start the main loop. After the loop, there was a short run back to the White Horse restaurant.
