The Seaford Striders Mince Pie 10, 2011




The Seafords Striders Mince Pie 10 is now live and on line here:
http://bit.ly/MincePie10-official-photos-2011

The eagle eyed of you will have already spotted the images were live on line yesterday, so you've had a head start on looking and ordering your pictures. Apologies for the blog delay - events (as they say).

On Sunday morning it was drier than the forecast had anticipated, with the pre-race rain blowing through before the start, and then starting again after the race. The only challenge was the incredibly strong storm force winds from the south west - but that did help with running back up the downs at the 6 mile mark !
Otherwise at some moments we even had some sun cut through the cloud and put a bit of glow on the ground.

James Baker flew round the course this year with 56:34 over a minute ahead of Mark Dooley in second place - even though both of them broke the magic 1hr mark and taking the course record. Respect for that - I'd be happy with 8 miles under the hour.
Sam Alvarez took the ladies title with a 1:10:45 performance to win by over a minute and a half over Susie Casebourne in 1:12:26.

Overall it was a record turn out - 327 finishers and they didn't run out of Mince Pies !

Results and other race information is available on the Seaford Striders website here: http://www.seafordstriders.org.uk/mincepie.html
The winner James, practising for his Christmas Eve shopping sprint 

Wild Dogs couldn't catch him

The hills were alive with the wings of Angels - variation on the airplane theme


Santa got caught up in the excitement

Good to see both Twins out and hopefully injury free

Mandatory hat wearing, black gloves

Thumbless sock gloves - probably a good idea given the cold wind

Red, black gloves and stripey mittens

No gloves for happy thumbs

A bit of argie-bargie banter on the downhill leg

Minimal fancy dress taken to a whole new level. At least it had Bells on !


Well done to Geoff and Natalie for another well organised event and the whole Seaford Striders team for a fantastically well marshalled race. The Mince Pies were delicious and very welcome after freezing up on the hillside ! I hope your
