Soft cups

Club News
Thank you for all the feedback regarding the soft speed cup. After looking into getting Striders branded cups we have decided not to order these as we were required by the supplier to order a minimum of 300 units. However, Let’s Run have agreed to supply us with their cups at a discounted price on the basis we order a minimum of 20 units. The cost per cup would be £5 each, saving £1.99 (33%) on the stores £6.99 selling price. Please comment below if you wish to buy one at £5 and if we hit the minimum order we will place an order for all those who want one.

14 May track and field report

Run reports
It was event 3 of the Track and Field series last Tuesday. Katie Abel, Antony Hamling, first timer Lee Hamilton, Stephen King, Tom Day and myself representing the club. First up was the High Jump. It was a disaster. I nearly knocked myself unconscious by slipping and hitting my head on the metal upright. So that was my evening done. It gets worse. The guy behind me ended up in hospital after slipping and dislocating his knee.  Things improved on the relative safety of the track. In the 800 metres Tom recorded an excellent 2 mins 26 secs in his heat. Ste won his heat in a lifetime best of 2 mins 43 secs. Great stuff. Antony and Katie ran consistent times of just over 3 minutes. Our resident 200…

18 May parkrun report

Run reports
It was a decent turnout at the barrage on Saturday. 39 Striders ran and a few more volunteered. Conditions were good and so were the performances.  Debbie Edwards wasn't hanging around - and a big pb and lifetime best parkrun time ensued. Great work Debbie. Teresa Parker ran superbly - and was rewarded with a pb and a regional age grading. Nice on Teresa. Amy Galillee was running so that, of course, meant a pb for her - making it a fantastic 10 pb's in 10 weeks. Not to be left out, Paula Newton and Scott Henderson got new pb's and Helen Mcilvenny was 3rd female finisher. Andy J, Anne D, Ben R, Dave F, Elizabeth M, Gail R, Helen J, Jennie J, Karen C, Katy W, Nigel R, Sam…

11 May parkrun report

Run reports
It was a pleasant sunny morning at the barrage on Saturday - and 20 Striders turned up to have a nice run. Of those, 4 walked away with new pb's. Stevie Cooper and Antony Hamling are both in great form and took 27 and 34 seconds respectively off previous best barrage times. I bumped into Janice Long the day before and suggested that conditions at the barrage would be good for a fast time. She took full advantage, running a barrage pb and her second fastest parkrun time ever. Nice one Janice. Nicola Darragh was the final member of the barrage pb club. Andy J, Ben R, Beverley H, Claire T, Colin, Gail R, Karen C and Sue R all volunteered. Elsewhere, Tracy Bradburn continued her impressive run of form…
