Mince pie night!
Our final Tuesday meeting before Christmas (17th December) will see us gather for Mulled Wine and Mince Pies after our training runs. The venue is the Mother Shipton Inn, where we will get together from around 8.30pm. Entry is free for members!


Marathon ballot – On that same evening we will also be making the draw for our free marathon place – this year in the 2020 Yorkshire Marathon! To enter the draw, click here: 2020 Yorkshire Marathon Ballot. You must be a current full member and not have won one of our marathon ballots before.

Awards Dinner


We are delighted to announce that, in a change to recent years, we have organised a Striders Awards Dinner to take place at the Dower House Hotel, Knaresborough, on Friday 31st January 2020. By combining our awards night with our ‘Christmas’ dinner, we hope to come together and have a fantastic evening at a slightly quieter time of year, celebrating another great 12 months for the club!

We will crown our next ‘Strider of the year’, announce the most-improved Strider, present our club championships and acknowledge a host of other achievements!

The ticket price is £35 which includes welcome drinks, a three-course meal and after-dinner DJ. Partners are most welcome.

A night not to be missed, you can secure your place by clicking here and paying a £20 deposit per person into our PayPal pool: Awards Dinner Paypal

A huge thanks to our tireless social officer Sarah for organising this!
