Striders Parkrun Home Run

Club News
For those members not on Facebook Striders Parkrun Home Run - The Sequel Hi all - the committee continue to hope you and your loved ones are staying safe at this time. Following the success of the Striders parkrun home run in April we are inviting members to the May sequel this coming Saturday (23rd). The route - same rules apply, members wishing to participate plan a 5k route travelling no further than 0.5 miles from their current address.

25th April – Striders Solo Parkrun

Club News
Hi all On behalf of the committee we hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. In addition to the current bake off challenge the committee have been looking at options to strike a balance between our obligations to the current COVID 19 restrictions whilst trying to promote the togetherness and wellbeing the club has on us all. With this in mind we are suggesting the following activity. Members willing to participate run/walk the 5k parkrun distance ideally at 9 am this Saturday 25th (any time over the weekend is fine is 9am is not convenient). The run will of course be solo or with members of your household in accordance with current restrictions. The twist to the activity is that everyone participating must stay within 0.5 miles…

8.2.20 – parkrun race report

Club News
Where to start? How about Albert Park for the club league event. The forecast earlier in the week pointed to the whole thing being a damp squib. Fortunately Storm Ciara got delayed - conditions were great - and the event was a big success. There were records and milestones aplenty. A total of 59 Striders chose to run, with Jamie B and Andy L volunteering. The lure of league points resulted in no fewer than 20 of our 59 runners recording new pb's. Sam Johnston and Kris Allen have been training hard and running well but falling just short of a first sub 20 min 5k. The combination of a fast course and good conditions helped both in finally dipping under the 20 min mark. Well done fellas. Beth Dang…

Race League Report – Albert Park

Club News
For those not on Facebook Race League The calm before the storm. Striders took full advantage of the conditions before Storm Ciara comes to town descending en masse to Albert Park for race 2 in this years league. Caroline Horton had the foresight to make the league race coincide with her 250th parkrun so there was cake at the end too. Fantastic milestone achievement Caroline - well done from us all. Personal duals meant the race adopted the ‘friendly competition’ tag that the club league is all about. I still personally think results should be based on height grading as opposed to age grading. The campaign to change the rules is in its infancy but it goes on, #littlelegsleague, catchy isn’t it? 😀. All smiles at the finish which is…
