Time trial No.1 – important details

Summer time means… Time trial is back!

The clocks have Sprung forwards, so we’re straight back into our ‘daylight’ activities!

They begin tomorrow evening (Tuesday 2nd April) with the first of our 5K Time Trials, which takes place in and around the Aspin estate. All Striders are welcome to enter and you will receive an official time which you compare yourself against at later time trials this year.

We do need to start promptly at 7.30pm though, so please start arriving at the Cricket Club from 7pm ready to register before moving to the startline just down Aspin Lane.

We had a record 57 runners at our first time trial last year, so let’s see if we can beat that!


For those not familiar with the course, it takes two very similar anti-clockwise laps around Aspin Estate.

The first longer lap heads along the back of the Cricket club for an extra loop around the playpark before heading back onto Aspin Lane.  The route is then: Rievaulx Avenue – Grimbald Road – Cemetery Path – King James Road before heading back past the Cricket club for a second shorter lap.
