STAC Championship 2019 – Race 9 (Redcar)


An away coach trip for our 9th club race of the year saw us travel to Teeside for the Redcar Running Festival.

It was a miserable day by the North Sea, but 32 intrepid runners braved the rainy conditions to take part in the various races on offer. Not to mention some loyal STAC supporters who came with us on the coach!

Top performers on the day were Shane Grace who finished 9th overall and 2nd in his category, and Chris Gill who finished 1st in his age category.

There is little change in the club championship with Tillie Clark, Sarah Morley and Sam Jackson top 3 in the Ladies. In the men’s the top 3 also remains the same with Richard Herrington still leading, however Ian Sheppard extends his lead in 2nd over Glen Johnson in 3rd.

Exactly 100 people have now taken part in a club run this year. Andrew Gardner is the only STAC to have done every race.

Full table below, and it’s the best 6 of the 9 races so far that counts. Additionally with Redcar, the majority raced the Half marathon, so those who ran the 5k and 10k had their times converted to a Half marathon using the Runner’s World race time predictor:
