Hilly 100 provides long distance challenge

Runners head down Rother Street in the Hilly 100.


THE 2018 edition of the Hilly 100, hosted by Stratford Athletic Club, was held on a day of challenging weather conditions.

The annual ten-stage relay starts at the iconic American Fountain in Stratford before heading on a circuit into the Cotswolds before heading back to finish at Stratford Sports Club.

Stratford AC fielded three squads for this year’s race: an all-men’s team plus two mixed teams.

Stratford AC’s men’s team – Neil Wicks, Kieran Tursner, Rob Minton, Drew Sambridge, James Coy, Chris Cond, Richard Shephard, Sam Nicholson, and Alex Hill – completed the 100 miles in a highly respectable 11:38:05.

Stratford AC’s A and B mixed teams finished in 14:15:11 and 14:43:01 respectively.
