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…

Parkrun – a reminder DFYB!

Club News
Hi all Whilst it was great to see so many Striders at Saturdays Albert parkrun it’s been brought to our attention by the event director that it appears not all members may have had their barcodes with them and were requesting that they be added to the results manually. As you know parkrun operate a strict no barcode no time policy at every single parkrun therefore we ask that all Striders respect this, whichever parkrun you are attending. So many of you kindly volunteer at parkruns in our region and will appreciate the position such a request put the volunteers in when having to say no to the individual. Whilst such instances may be isolated it would be a shame to undo all the good work we’ve built around our…

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…

Great Run Local 09 February – cancelled due to inclement weather

Club News
From Facebook:   Sorry folks but the forecast for tomorrow is holding, so were going to #CANCEL tomorrow's Great Run Local at Ropner Park for the safety of both runners and marshals. We could have hung on and checked in the morning, but thought that by making an announcement early everyone can make alternative plans, even if that's just to turn the alarm off and have a nice lie in while the storm passes. Please share this and pass the message round to anyone you know who is a regular but not on Facebook. Clive.
