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.

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…
