Blustery winds didn’t stop runners putting their best foot forward to take part in the annual St Albans 10k.

On Sunday hundreds of participants set off from King Harry Lane with many eager to set a personal best and cross the finishing line first.

More than 40 club members from St Albans Striders were involved in organising and marshalling the race, which was also a County Championship event.

The Striders men's and women's teams both came first in both the main race and the County Championships.

In the men's race Strider Tom Crouch came first by completing in 33 minutes 29 seconds. The first woman to cross the finish line was Rebekah Gardiner, from Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers in a time of 37 minutes 35 seconds.

Jack Brookes from the Striders said it was successful day.

He said: "The feedback from competitors has been good with both the organisation and the marshalling receiving particular praise.

"I was particularly impressed by one of the female runners (Conchi Capilla) who opted to run the whole race barefoot."
