Well done to the 3 members who tackled this hilly half Marathon. As they were each in a different Category, unchallenged, a valuable single point was gained by each. See the result Here CLUB CHAMP 2018 LIVERSEDGE
Roll on Event 3 , Dentdale 14 mls.
This was a tough season for Striders which is reflected in their Division positions. Senior Men were 9th of 9 in Division 2 and the Veteran men were 7th of 12 in Division. 1. The Ladies fared better ,Seniors were 3rd of 9 in Division 2 and the Veterans 6th of 11 in the Premier Division. Turn outs were a bit low overall, clearly affected by Flu virus, some injuries and personal circumstance. However on viewing the events the effort put in by our 30 participants who did at least one run each, could not be faulted. Well done. A further well done to Ian and Edna who both completed all events and will have a memento for that at seasons end.
The highest ranked man for Striders was Steve in 95th place, for the Ladies Nicola finished in 18th place. Three Ladies ranked high in there Categories
Nicola LV 45 2nd
Sima LV 40 4th
Sue LV 60 4th
This season saw 8 new members run in the League, Steve and Gareth
Debbie,Lisa Amy, Baz, Georgina and Laura. Hope to see you all next season , and bring a friend.
Finally we had two successes at the final event at Temple Newsam, the squad erected our gazebo so well it did not blow away like other clubs and the Lady Vets team came 1st in the Premier League.

This was the last Fixture in the Series and 9 Ladies and 7 men tackled this tough course on a cold windy day with lots of sapping mud particularly on the long run in . Not one ounce of effort was spared and everybody ran superbly. Plenty of food left after the “do” on Saturday was brought by our foresighted Ladies and was so welcomed at the end. Well done All.
Next up –Peco Relays 25/3/18, excellent event last year. Local venue 2018. Info out soon as I have it. Eric
