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.

New Club event – St.Robert’s Rush!

Tuesday 22nd May will see a new club event, open to all members!

Inspired by a group of our runners who have been challenging themselves along one of our local and beautiful routes, this is a chance to test yourself over a shorter distance!

St Robert Rush











The ‘St.Robert’s Rush’ is a 1-mile time trial along Abbey Road, starting right outside the steps to St.Robert’s Cave and ending just a hundred yards before the Half Moon pub. For the unaquainted, it’s an undulating and tree-lined tarmac route adjacent to the River Nidd popular with runners, walkers and cyclists. We’ll pass the cave, views of the Lido, the site of the ruined Abbey and the famous wood carvings – although it may not be an evening for admiring the scenery!

The route will be accurately measured and marshalled by our own members. Runners will set off in small groups of similar ability.

Entry is free and we hope that – like our recent 5k time trial – as many as possible of our members will take part. We hope to repeat the event later this year so that you can measure your summer progress. All Runners should meet at the Cricket club as close to 7pm as possible to register, with the first group of runners jogging down to the start with a leader at 7.30pm.


EMMA the COACH, Dates for your diary.

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.

Emma will attend on these dates, 24/5/18
