Did you get your email on 13 July?
There was a technical problem and some people did not get it. You can read it at
I've entered a few local races here in Chiclana this last month and hey presto won a medal!! Amazing as I didn't expect to win anything as have had..and still do... problems with my achilles. I won the medal in an 8K with a time of 40.28 minutes! I came 6th in the women's veteran category i.e.anyone born in 1972 or before!! Well it has certainly inspired me for the final race, a 6K, a week on Saturday. Races then start up again in the autumn.
Happy, injury free running to all Valley Striders!
