Cycling and Triathlon

Yoga - on a Monday evening Liz Wood leads 2 sessions specifically for V S members - you must be a running or cycling or social member to take part. See the V S Yoga Facebook group.

The final thing we need to tell you about is that we organise three races each year, in April, June and October. And sometimes a 4th in February. We need on average 60 marshals and officials for each race so we ask you if possible to make yourself available for at least one of these races. We do have a substitution feature whereby you may run the race if you can get a member of the family or a friend to marshal in place of you.

We also help with a few other local races where we are requested to supply about 10 marshals. We find that Striders who have "associations" with the charities (Cancer Research, Jane Tomlinson, and others) tend to volunteer for these.

We hope you enjoy your running and/or cycling and/or socialising with us!
