Hello Striders,
Information for new members and general reminder for others.

The Mob Match will take place on July 15th this year at the Burton Leonard 10k. Within the event Striders go’ head to head’ against local rivals Nidd Valley.
An adding-up process of finishing positions of runners from each club establishes the result ( the lowest score wins) and that club then holds the Shield for 12 months.
This is also a great day out in this scenic local village with food available in the Village hall and a 3k Junior race, a great atmosphere prevails with family and friends loudly supporting there own club.
In the afternoon there is the Shield presentation at the Working men’s Club in Knaresborough with food available too.

Last year Nidd Valley won the Shield again, so we urge you now, all Striders put the date in your diary, Enter early and lets have a good turn out and a good time in trying to regain the Shield.

Once again Emma has agreed to come and coach at Striders on the 4th Thursday of each month.

Emma is a really experienced Coach with a wide variety of skills and knowledge whose presentation of sessions will make you fitter for running and give you a good insight on how to progress . This is achieved from the Coaching course she attended, her vast experience in running generally over many years and many other skills she has allied to runner development.
I would recommend everyone interested in developing as a runner give the sessions a try. You will not be disappointed.
