Needed: Summer League Cakes

Next Tuesday (2nd July) we are hosting Round 4 of the HDRSL and also providing refreshments at the Knaresborough Working Men’s Club (Kirkgate, Knaresborough) afterwards.

Are you able to help by providing cakes please? Any type will be very welcome, but we’d also like to ensure that we have gluten-free and vegan options amongst the selection please.

These will ideally need to be dropped off at the WMC the race (which is 7.45 from Horseshoe Fields).

Thank You!

Club Championship Update!

Update: Ben Campbell Club Championship

Next weekend, our Club Championship moves onto round 6 at Staveley Stampede, so it’s time to take a look at how the early standings are shaping up. Thanks to Sima who has taken over the task of compiling the championship results!


The Veteran Ladies (35+) is our hottest- contended category so far, with an incredible 25 athletes already in the hunt. Sarah leads the way at the moment, but with four different ladies having already claimed the ‘1’, a long, close battle is likely.
CC VetLadies after 5 rounds

Our Senior Ladies category is currently a little lacking in numbers, but hopefully will grow as the season progresses. Defending champion Claire currently leads after her 5 completed rounds.
CC SeniorL after 5 rounds
The Senior men’s category is currently headed by James Wright but with four different winners so far, and some fast athletes yet to complete many rounds, who knows how this one will shape-up? What is certain is that with Martin ‘graduating’ to the Vets, we will eventually see a new champion!
CC SeniorM after 5 rounds

Another hotly-contested category is the Veteran men, where the challenge for everyone remains to beat defending champion Ian Waller after the adjustments are applied! Steve Morland currently leads from Steve Dodsworth and Dave Sinton but Ian continues to claim those P1s each time he runs…

Future rounds
We have another 10 rounds ahead, which are listed on the Championship page. We will announcing a replacement for round 14 soon…

Here’s how it’s all worked out…

The championship continues the system which was used by Eric very successfully for several years. At each round, your time is divided by a base figure accordingly to your age and gender. The resulting adjusted times are then sorted to give you your championship position at that particular round.

Your overall championship position is determined by the total of your best 7 finishes across the year, so the lowest score at the end of the season wins. If athletes haven’t completed 7 rounds (which is the case for everyone at moment!) positions are determined by sorting by number of races completed, then by the total of finishing positions so far.



This Thursday – Summer League Race 3

This Thursday sees the running of the 3rd round of the summer League – hopefully in more seasonable conditions than the previous round!

The hosts are Dragons and the base location is Westfield Industrial Estate, Yeadon LS19 7LX.

Race start is 7.45. the race information can be found by clicking here.

With Striders riding high in the standings it would be great to see another healthy turnout!

A reminder also that Round 4 comes up quickly on July 2nd, when we will be the hosts. If you are able to help by baking cakes form the post-race supper, that would be greatly appreciated!
