The championship standings are shown below. For results from each individual race, keep scrolling down.
Recent weeks have seen two quieter rounds - Rougemont Chase and Littondale 4 - with a modest amount of movement resulting in the championship. Nonetheless, each category could be won by a range of Striders and we are beginning to see contenders reaching the magical 'seven rounds after which they can drop scores. Round 10 is next - Sessay Swift - with a greater number of Striders already booked to take part. How will that affect the championship battles...?
Our busiest category continues to deliver a close championship, with Sue and Nicola sharing the spoils in the last two rounds. Nicola continues to lead the way and will now be able to beginning dropping scores, but Sue has now racked-up four first places in four places... championship-winning form perhaps?
The well-attended veteran men category continues to move towards a close finish, although Steve Dodsworth has now got in on the act with his best finish to-date at Littondale! Whilst Steve Morland continues to lead, and has now completed the 7 required rounds, Ian still holds the advantage in head-to-head results...

Round 4 - Ben Campbell 10K trail
Round 6 - Staveley Stampede
Another sunny Stampede saw some of the trends of recent rounds continue, with strong numbers taking part in the two veteran categories. In the smallest category, Senior Ladies, Laura has added another '1', closing the gap on erstwhile leader Claire, whilst in the Men's category, James Wright registered his first win of the season, continuing the pattern of a different winner in every round!
The Veteran Ladies' category saw a new first lady over the line, but it was Sue who took championship honours with Nicola holding onto the lead after 6 rounds! In the Veteran men, Ian narrowly claimed the first place, also taking away first V60 in the race itself.
Round 7 - Burton Leonard
Burton Leonard saw the highest turnout of the Championship so far, with 43 Striders taking part! Nine new names appear on our growing leaderboards as a result, including Beyhan who made an immediate impact on the Senior Ladies category! Tom Calvert became the first Senior Man to record two championship wins this year, whilst in the Veteran Men, Steve Morland narrowly pipped Ian Waller head-to-head for the first time. The Ladies' Veteran now has a new contender, with Sue racking up her third consecutive first place to put herself firmly in the mix!
