Oh we do like to be beside the seaside.

Run reports
It wasn't quite bucket and spade weather but Striders had a trip to the seaside. The Yorkshire Coast 10k in Scarborough wasn't a league race, but it might as well have been with the number of us running. Another stupidity early Sunday morning bus left club HQ full of sleepy Striders. Although it was a lie-in compared to the day before for those of us who had been up even earlier to enter the Brass Monkey. Bus manager Helen (thanks for organising) was running a very strict establishment, not letting anyone on the bus before they had paid their fare. 😂 Arriving in plenty of time we headed to the Spa complex to hide from the wind and rain caused by the remains of Storm whatever stupid name they have…

Acklam Cross County

Run reports
How do we know that winter is on the way??? By the beginning of cross county season of course. The race saw unusually warm and dry conditions. A sharp contrast to the sub-zero conditions of this race last year. There were lots of new faces on the men's team - they must have heard about Liz and Jerry's cake... oh and the fun of running through mud. Starting in the grounds of Acklam school the ladies took on 2 laps and men 3 1/2. We soon left the school grounds and headed to the field and then woods behind. With very little mud in sight, it was more like a trail run that cross country. The Striders paparazzi were out in force with enthusiastic support from non-running fellow Striders and…

The Striders York takeover

Run reports
For around four months lots of Striders have been getting up extra early on Sundays and pounding the streets to get the miles in. There was only one difference this Sunday, albeit a rather big one. This was race day - the day we had been excited and nervous about for so long. Porridge eaten and some last minute checks… number yes… kit yes…. fuel yes… shoes yes…. and it was time to leave. For a moment, it looked like Ste B tactic for coming first was to try and run over everyone he was picking up, but he did inform us this was just his normal way of driving – be warned!! Over 50 of us left club HQ ‪at 7am‬ for the journey to the Yorkshire Marathon and…

A Striders Sunday social run with 57,000 other people

Run reports
Official results say 25 Striders ran the Great North Run, but add on those who joined since getting a GNR place, so not registered as a Strider, or those who ran is disguise (not that we would condone number swapping of course) and there were loads more running the 13.1miles from Newcastle to South Shields. The Striders bus left club HQ nice and early for an easy trip up to Newcastle. We had a mixture of first timers and those who are now part of the GNR furniture. The last part of the journey into Newcastle city centre was along the first half of the route, just to get us even more excited! Looking strangely quiet at 8:30am we knew how different that would be 2 hours later. Despite Vicki…
