Great event well organised and delivered. Many thanks to all at Sandbach Striders and also to Stu for turning up to support. Personally struggled more than expected for a marathon. No doubt that a track marathon is challenging in its own way. Goodness knows what it would have been like had there been a stiff breeze or rain.
A great credit to Sandbach for great event in great weather. Maurice
Brilliant event, really well organised. Hope it will be on again next year
Thanks to Sandback striders for all the hard work. Was great to have the jelly babies as well, saved me having to keep stopping to get my own sweeties!!
I forgot about this forum so have only just seen the email we shoudl have got! I didnt seem to get it, not sure how that happened.
Ladies and gents,
A big thank you to all of you who made the trip to Sunny Crewe yesterday. We hope you enjoyed your day and that you achieved the result you were aiming for. The results will be up on our club website www.sandbachstriders.co.uk some time today hopefully. We have a ton of photos as well which will be up on the site too very soon.
What started out as a daft bit of banter between three running buddies somehow evolved into a proper race - we're still not quite sure how this happened!
As such, we’re not sure as yet whether this event will be happening again. Rest assured you’ll be the first to know if it does. We greatly appreciate all the positive feedback that we’ve received so far and that will go a long way to convince us to pull our fingers out again next year.
Thanks again, and we hope to see you all in the future whether it's at our race or somewhere else.
On behalf of the rest of Sandbach Striders,
What a fantastic event!!!
Congratulations to everyone at the Sandbach Striders involved in the organisation.
Everyone was so friendly & supportive - it was especially welcome during the last tough 25 laps or so.
It was nice to meet & put names to faces to a lot of the people on here too.
Hopefully it will be on again next year.
I'd just like to echo all of the above comments - absolutely fantastic event, massive thanks and well done to everyone involved.
It was my first ever marathon and the furthest I'd ever run previously was 10 miles so 40 laps onwards really was unchartered territory and I definitely hit the wall with 20 or so laps to go! Managed to finish thanks to the brilliant support from fellow runners/organisers/spectators so thanks once again.
Will definitely be entering another marathon soon, although may need to invest in some decent trainers and playing footy the day before probably wasn't the best idea either in retrospect!
Hope this gets arranged again next year (first dibs on entry places would be nice!)
Same weekend in November????
Count me in
The rest of the photos are finally available also now folks at www.sandbachstriders.co.uk
Sorry for the delay in getting them online - hope you enjoy them and they don't bring back too many bad memories
Many thanks from all at Sandbach Striders for all the positive comments / emails / texts that we're received too - hope to see you all again soon!
We're glad to announce (finally) that back by popular demand! Crewe's premier track marathon returns in 2012.
