Feedback from new members

Club News
Everything that you wanted to know about Stockton Striders - but were afraid to ask! Have you joined Striders in the last few months? If so we are keen to hear from you. As part of the continuing process of improving the club, we are reviewing  the induction process that new members go through. To assist in this, we are very keen to hear from members who have joined in the last three months or so, to ascertain what they now know about the club, but maybe wish they knew earlier. Furthermore are there things that you still don't know about the club but would like to know? For example do you know about the club league? If I have a concern who do I contact?  How do I go…

Meal out after York!

Club News
So we had to have a bit of a last minute change in terms of where to go after York this year as Carpaccio’s is closed on a Sunday, we tried Scrann in Norton but that was also closed on a Sunday and Borges where we went last year already had a big booking in 🙈 So we had to settle for the Talpore as there was availability for us there! Hope this isn’t an issue for anyone however it is still fairly local and not too hard to get to either. The table is booked for 7.30pm and we are in the restaurant area.  Here is the list of those who are coming:  1. Sam 2. Tom Ramsey 3. Helen Johnston 4. Katy Wilburn 5. Liz Simpson  6. Jennifer…

Post York Meal!

Club News
Hi all, A few of us have been talking and think it would be a good idea like last year to go for a meal out somewhere after the York marathon/10 mile race.  We thought Carpaccio’s was a good option.  If you would like to come along to the meal then could you please let me know by either commenting on this thread or letting me know privately that you wish to attend.  I will be booking the table a week today so you have until Sunday to let me know please. If anyone is unsure of this date then it’s Sunday 14th October.  This will be mentioned at the club this week as part of the shoutouts for people not in this group 👍  Thanks !

(25-27) which will be lead by Angela are doing a 5 mile run with strides.  (30-33 + 33+) which will be lead by David E are doing 3 x 1 mile repeats.  Please could members who usually run in the 27-30 group pick one of the above sessions for tonight as we are a bit thin on the ground for coaches. They are inclusive sessions so you’ll be fine in one of the other groups 👍 Thank you

NYMAC Relay Race Report

Run reports
A pleasant late summer evening saw a large Striders team descend on Stewarts Park. We were joined by familiar faces from other local running clubs. The purpose of this gathering? The biannual NYMAC  Tom Wall relays - teams of four, with each person running a mile around the park, handing the baton to a team-mate after each leg. 9 Striders teams were entered - 4 ladies, 4 men and 1 mixed. With the warm-ups and loo visits complete there were nervous glances at expensive running watches. Conditions were good and most people had a target time. A few minutes before 7pm the throng was cleared from the starting area and the first leg runners lined up... then we were off. Our mixed team was led off by me old pal…
