For those of you old enough to remember play your cards right - it’s a brucie bonus kinda offer tomorrow - an additional tea & coffee night!

We have been approached by a student at Teesside Uni doing his physiotherapy degree . As part of his dissertation titled ‘Injury Audit of the most common lower limb injury for males age 30-50 through social recreational running’ George has asked if he can come along to the club with his questionnaire & for willing members meeting the study criteria to meet him & participate in the study.

The month of February means only one thing .... yes thats right its the Royal Signals Road Relays! More details at link below. If interested in taking part please comment here no later than Tuesday 29 January 2019. The entry fee will be covered by club funds and we usually look at car sharing or maybe a mini bus to get there. Please note you must be EA affiliated to Stockton Striders AC and as its an NECAA regional event the official green and blue Stockton Striders vests will need to be worn .... we do have some in stock if you need to purchase one. https://necaa.weebly.com/uploads/6/4/8/5/64850927/necaa_road_relay_2019_prospectus.pdf

Seems the dreaded cold/lurgy has caught up with me these last couple of days 🤧😷🤒 which means a reality check & not being fit enough to do tomorrow’s parkruns 😒😒 ... Debbie Edwards would like to do them & Diane Johnson has kindly offered to guide run at Stewart’s - anyone able to help out at Albert? You don’t need to be a registered guide runner just able to let Debbie know of any hazards etc as you run ... we did Albert parkrun on Christmas Day so Debbie already has a feel for the course .... Please comment if you can help Many thanks Helen x
