A big well done to everyone who entered – a fantastic turn out. My thanks to all the marshals and helpers, who like the athletes, had to deal with a mucky night. Well done to Jez and the team for the prep and serving of those lovely Pie and Peas.

Our first club Time Trial of 2016 will take place on Tuesday 29th March. This will be the 1st of 3 events throughout the year.

The event is open to all and held over a 5km course. Competing in these events is a great way of tracking your progress throughout the year. Entry is free, with food (pie and peas) served in the clubhouse afterwards for a fee of £2.

I still need lots of helpers and marshalls for the event. Please let me know this Tuesday night (22/03) if you can help. If not at club, please email me on eric_morley@hotmail.com

MOB MATCH v NIDD VALLEY – 17th July @ Burton Leonard 10k

The Mob Match is an annual competition with our local rivals Nidd Valley where we race against them within the Burton Leonard 10k. 2016 is the third year of the event on the above date. Burton Leonard is also in the Club Championship.

At the first running in 2014 Nidd Valley were victors but in 2015 they were swept aside by fantastic performances from all the Striders running. 2016 will be tough so lets put a date to dairies early. The bigger turn out the better.

Go Striders.
