Eleven Striders tackled this tough 10 miler hosted by local rivals Nidd Valley (see separate report for more detail).

In the Ladies Championship, Pam Singleton took the win on our age grading system which elevated her from 13th to 7th in the Championship, Nicola was next and remains overall winner of the Championship and Sima cemented second place. Dawn was next and put a bit more space between herself and Andrea. Katie Gray and June Graham recorded there first points with June 6th and Katie 7th.

In the Mens Championship, Ian has won, however today’s results saw Conrad continue his excellent late season form and move from 7th to 3rd. Martin maintains 2nd place by two points from him. A battle ensues between James and Dan with just 2 points the difference. They are in 4th and 5th place respectively. Julian improved his points tally and remains in 6th.

The championships ends with the Leeds Abbey Dash on 15/11.

I am already preparing the 2016 Championship and comments about this seasons races and the championship format are welcome, critical or otherwise. In formulating next years event suggestions are most welcome about races that we might add /or take out, and on format.

Ladies Club Championshop (after 8 events)

After eight events Nicola is Club Champion for the second year running. In second place at the moment is Sima, friends Dawn and Andrea continue to battle for third and fourth. The biggest mover recently is Clare who has gone from fifteenth to fifth. There at two events left, Guy Fawkes 10 and Abbey Dash so chance to put some points on the board.

Mens Club Championship Update


Ian Mitchell will be Champion, after him Martin is a good bet for 2nd at the moment and there is an excellent fight going on for 3rd with James, Dan and Andy seperated by only 4 points. However Conrad running into form poses a great threat to them and potentially Martin. Rob Clarke, who needs to run the last 2 races, is also a massive threat to those above him. Julian and David have slipped down a bit but retain top 10 positions. The standings will be published to Club notice board 20/10.

Ladies, a work in progress, available asap.

Cheers Ericc
