SUMMER ROAD LEAGUE Important information

For those members who purchased a Summer Road League bib /number and have not been able to use it the SRL committee have told us you can come and run in the Handicap (Tuesday28th June) at Ripon event if you wish. You will not qualify for a prize but can join in the fun.

KEY When do I start. QUOTE.— That is for you to decide, perhaps with someone whose standard you know or just a minute or two behind them. Better to start
later, rather than to early so that you cross the line first ,only to be disqualified from the prize list UNQUOTE.

Whatever happens do not run with someone elses number.

thanks Eric

Club Time Trial July 19th Volunteers

At any given event organised by Striders we usually end up with the required amount of Marshalls, mainly the same group of people who make our events run smoothly and we are all pleased about that. However if you have not volunteered before it would be nice to see some new faces for the Time Trial. None of it is rocket science. Please see me inthe coming weeks if you can help.

Cheers Eric

Our 2nd Time Trial over a local 5 kilometre course is a good sharpening event for Park runs and 10k. For those who did the first Time Trial , a chance to compare how your going. For newer members a chance to establish a time and do a comparison at the 3rd event in September.
