Predictor Run – A request for Volunteers and event Information

We are holding a predictor run event at training on Tuesday (5th July).

I could just do with a couple of persons to administrate the finish with me on Tuesday night – please let me know via if you can help.

For the runners, please arrive a bit earlier to register and submit the time you predict for yourself to run the 5km or 5mile course. Entry is £2, with the winner of each of the distances splitting the winnings! NO timing devices are to be carried on the runs. Route Maps will be available on the night and its noteworthy that the 5k is our Time Trial route – our next Time Trial will be on Tuesday 19th July (with the club Summer BBQ following).

Thanks, Eric

Mob Match @ Burton Leonard 10k – 17/07/16

A message from Eric regarding the Burton Leonard 10k –
“As I am scoring the Mob Match and because I do not know some Striders, it would be a big help if everyone
could wear club colours for the race. If you do not have them (or we cannot supply), do go down the
beg/steal/borrow route if possible. Many thanks Eric”

If you would like to purchase a club t-shirt or vest, please see Andy Robinson at a training night.

SUMMER ROAD LEAGUE Important information

For those members who purchased a Summer Road League bib /number and have not been able to use it the SRL committee have told us you can come and run in the Handicap (Tuesday28th June) at Ripon event if you wish. You will not qualify for a prize but can join in the fun.

KEY When do I start. QUOTE.— That is for you to decide, perhaps with someone whose standard you know or just a minute or two behind them. Better to start
later, rather than to early so that you cross the line first ,only to be disqualified from the prize list UNQUOTE.

Whatever happens do not run with someone elses number.

thanks Eric

Club Time Trial July 19th Volunteers

At any given event organised by Striders we usually end up with the required amount of Marshalls, mainly the same group of people who make our events run smoothly and we are all pleased about that. However if you have not volunteered before it would be nice to see some new faces for the Time Trial. None of it is rocket science. Please see me inthe coming weeks if you can help.

Cheers Eric

July 19th 2nd Time Trial
