The championship standings are shown below. For results from each individual race, keep scrolling down.
We have now reached the two-thirds mark of our club championship after a strong turnout of Striders at the unusual Sessay Swift 6K. All four categories remain open and it looks certain that most will not be decided until the last couple of rounds! Remember that your total is calculated from your best seven age-adjusted scores - you can now see members who have been able to drop their worst scores! Round 11 is next - Wetherby 10k - with a good number of Striders usually in attendance. Will things be any clearer after that?
There are still five of our Veteran ladies who could lift the championship with five rounds remaining. Several athletes are likely to be dropping scores in the coming weeks and that could change their fortunes considerably! For now, Nicola continues to collect strong results and hold the opposition at bay.

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!
Round 10 - Sessay Swift 6K
Congratulations to our contingent of nineteen Striders who made the short trip to Sessay Swift last night for round 10 of our Ben Campbell Club Championship.
The fast fast tarmac route over the unconventional distance of 6K had many competitors scratching their heads as to how to approach the event, but mutterings around the start-line seemed to be mostly ‘like a parkrun, but with an extra bit..’. Our Striders did themselves proud, not only as the third biggest-represented club on the night, but also finishing a close second in the Mens’ team event behind a very strong Leeds AC team. Tom Calvert was our lead man home in an excellent 20:25, building on his recent parkrun form, whilst Nicola Carter clocked a great 26:44 to lead our squad of nine ladies in.
Round 11 - Wetherby 10K
Wetherby 10K will take place on Sunday 1st September 2019
