2019 membership information

Club News
Dear Strider, Happy New Year and welcome to another year of Striding. Many of you will be aware of this but for those who are not, just a reminder that the date for club membership renewals has moved to 1st April. This will allow us to line up membership and payments for England Athletics for those who choose to affiliate, at the same time therefore saving on administrative time. This means that for this year only, existing members can enjoy the first three months of the year for FREE. Please make the most of this as its a one-off opportunity and we hope you like the fact that we have moved payments a little further away from Christmas! Membership forms for 2019 are available for new members at present but…

Teesdale Way run update

Training
Sunday seems the most popular for those that replied so weโ€™ll go for 9am on Sunday from Preston Park main carpark. Weโ€™ll do a loop of the park, run down Yarm Road to Yarm, along the Teesdale Way to Eaglescliffe and back to the park. Itโ€™s approx 6 miles. Remember your trail shoes itโ€™s really muddy! That gives everyone time to rest the legs before the first league race of next year on NYD at the double Albert and Stewart parkrun. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Christmas runs

Training
Thereโ€™ll be a couple of unofficial all-inclusive sessions over the Christmas holidays. Thursday 27th - Intervals in Ropner Park. Meet 9am at the bandstand. New Years Eve (can move to Sunday if thatโ€™s better for the majority of people) - Social run along the Teesdale way. Approx 7 miles. Itโ€™s really muddy and slippery so youโ€™ll need trail shoes! Meeting time and location to follow. Will most likely be doing my own run on Wednesday too if anyone wants another social run.
