The club will be arranging two trips again this year – one in the UK and one in Europe.
24 Hours of running
The UK based trip will be to a new event at Bramham Park (nice and local) on 1st/2nd July – ENDURE24.
After the huge success of 20 Striders taking on the Equinox24 last September we thought we would give a similar event a go and, with it been local, we are hoping to get a greater number of Striders in attendance.
So what does the event entail? Basics are that its on for 24hrs (12Noon Saturday to 12Noon Sunday) and is run over an 8km course. Teams of between 3 and 8 can be entered (or perhaps you want to go solo?) with the aim that one member of each team is on the course at all times. You can do 1 lap, 2 laps, up to 8 laps if you want – it’s an event that caters for abilities.
The cost (if booked by 4th February) is £45 which includes camping and shower facilities at the venue (also covers cost of family members that may want to camp) plus an event t-shirt and medal. Obviously with it being so closeyou may want to come and do a lap, go home to get a shower and then come back for your next lap (we will be putting a base timetable together).
If you are interested, please let James Wright know by 29th January via speaking to him at a club night, via facebook message or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once intial numbers are known, teams will be set up and notifications sent to allow people to enter on the event website before the price increase on 4th February.
A social in Poland…with a parkrun thrown in
The Euorpe trip (date TBA) will be to Gdansk in Poland. This will be more of a social trip with a parkrun thrown in on the Saturday morning and some guided runs around the city on the Friday.
Return flights from Leeds/Bradford Airport with Ryanair will cost around £55-£75 and on current research, hotels in the area are very reasonably priced also. The trip is likely to be held in May or September, with a date to be set in the next week or so – watch out for more details on this website and social media.
