Is anyone available to hand out Meanwood Valley Trail entry forms at the end of this race, please?
We now have 53 entries, but Abbey Runners still have more than us.
The full list of Striders names entered so far is at the bottom of this email.
If you’re not on the list but you entered some time ago, let me know and I’ll check it out with the race organisers.
If you’re not on the list and have a valid excuse for not running, OK.
If you’re not on the list and haven’t entered yet, then you can still enter online at www.ukresults.net You can enter on the day, but it’s cheaper to enter on line so PLEASE DO.
73 Striders have already run in our Grand Prix this year, we ought to be able to get more than 53 running in this race!
Remember for the Abbey Valley Challenge, everyone scores for the team, quantity is at least as important as quality!!!!

UK Athletics have stopped taking registrations for their current year which ends on 30 April. They are still hoping to get membership cards out for the current year, I will let you know if/when they are available.
Sometime during May, UK Athletics will accept lists of club members for their new year. We intend to send our list off as early as possible with the hope that new membership cards will come out quickly.
We will only include on our list the people who have paid their Valley Striders subs for the year September 2007 to August 2008. There are currently 171 of these.
There are 52 people who were members Sep’06 to Aug’07 but have not yet paid for Sep’07 to Aug’08.
Please check your membership status on http://valleystriders.org.uk/reg2007.htm
