Some slight changes to those published on Monday night


Re Vets Race next Tuesday, if you are marshalling, please arrive for 6:40pm, to be taken out to your marshalling position at 6:45pm.  Also note that we are expecting 150 runners, most of whom will arrive between 6:30pm and 7:00pm, i.e. the same time as you are arriving, so allow a few extra minutes to get parked.  The more marshals we have the better as the length of the route will depend on the number of marshals that we have!!!  Please contact me by email or Geoff 266-6288 if you are available but haven’t previously said so (or if you’ve said you are available and can’t attend).   Thanks.


Re Bradford Millennium Way, the closing date for entering teams is 31 May, so please let me know by 29 May at the very latest if you are a definite or probable to run.  We still need 8 more for two teams or 18 more for three teams.


Re Valley Striders Anniversary, Leo’s is unavailable on 22nd July.  We have Grand Prix races on 15th at Eccup and 29th at Round Hill, so the choices (if we are going to have a Sunday event) are July 8th or August 5th.  Please let me know your preferences.


Here’s the revised list


Sunday 20 May – Pulse Races 3 miles fun run (10:00) and 10k race (11:00) in Roundhay Park, one or two more marshals required (email Mick Tinker ), plenty of runners required (can enter on day)


Tuesday 22 May – Yorkshire Vets Race organized by Valley Striders at Leos, 19:30 start, a few more marshals required, thanks to those of you already marshalling, please turn up for 18:40 (unless Geoff has already asked you to arrive earlier!), ready to be taken to your positions at 18:45.  If you are able to help with course layout, please contact Geoff on 266 6288.  It would also be helpful to have someone to run the route at 18:30-18:45, again contact Geoff.


Thursday 24 May, Apperley Bridge Canter approx 10k mixed terrain from Woodhouse Grove School at Apperley Bridge, good race organized by Horsforth Harriers


Sunday 24 June, Bradford Millennium Way Relay, teams of 10, we have 12 runners so far so we need 8 or 18 more.  Please email me as soon as possible if you want to run as we need to send off team entries soon


Sunday 8 July or Sunday 4 August, choice of date for Striders 25th Anniversary event, possibly a repeat of the 20th anniversary where we ran from Woodhouse Moor to Leos (the fitter runners ran from Leos to Woodhouse Moor first).  Followed by lunchtime barbecue at Leos.  What do you think?


Tuesday 24 July, Striders 25th Anniversary celebrations continue with Summer Handicap.


Sunday 2 September, Leeds Country Way, keep this date free, we have had 4 teams of 12 for the last 4 years, so 48+ Striders required again this year!  More details to follow


Sunday 7 October, (don’t enter Selby half marathon), this is the date of Harewood 10 mile, the larger of the main runs we organize.  Rather a lot of marshals required, please
