Rainbow relay

Club News
Wow #TeamStriders you are brilliant! Green and blue turned rainbow for the weekend with 77 members running. 🌈🌈 🙌 Thank you to everyone who ran, supported, dressed up and decorated. Hopefully this gave you all a smile in these difficult times. It just shows what a fantastic club we are. It’s great to see so many people getting their family involved too, from Sue Russell’s fab running bunch of grapes to those who had children and grandchildren creating batons. Like anything we couldn’t have done this without the hard work of a number of people. Big thank you to Lucy Owens for a huge amount of work and help on this and all of our coaches for being brilliant team leaders. Who won the best baton and rainbow team, I…

Rainbow Relay

Club News
ollowing the success of last weeks parkrun from home we have been working hard in the background to create the next Striders challenge.   Over the bank holiday weekend (Friday 8th to Sunday 10th) we will be doing a Rainbow Relay. The emphasis for this is on fun and encouraging each other to enjoy our running in such strange times, not pace or speed, so it would be great to see as many people as possible join in.   Each runner will be allocated a random team and colour. Each person within the team will then run up to 6 miles in the order of colours. Full details can be seen in this attached document. - any problems will accessing this please let me know.   Please comment below or on…

Paul’s 29th Feb parkrun report

Training
A big turnout of 62 Striders at the barrage on Saturday - many of whom were there to congratulate Gail Robinson. Gail completed a double milestone of 100 parkruns and 100 volunteering duties. Also instrumental in setting up the Billingham junior parkrun Gail has done everything from run directing to scanning tokens. I'm sure I speak for everyone at the club by saying a big thank you Gail for your tireless efforts in making the parkrun such a great event. We also saw Andy Johnston volunteer for the 25th time.
