Subject: FW: VS Mini-update - Anniversary Run, Barbecue, Membership


Just a brief update, normal service will be resumed at the weekend.


VS Anniversary


Barbecue this Sunday (20 July) has been CANCELLED, but the run is still ON.


We’re meeting at Leos but have BROUGHT FORWARD the time to 09:30.


We’ll be running down the Meanwood Valley Trail (off road nearly all the way) to Woodhouse Moor, and then back to Leos (slightly different route back), about 10 miles in total.


Then a shower at Leo’s followed by late breakfast / early lunch at Angel Share at Chapel Allerton.  It is just across the road from the old Chapel Allerton Police Station.  Some of us went there last year after the Abbey Dash.  I guess we’ll be there about 11:30 to 11:45 (or 12:00 if we’re late setting off for the run!).


Email if you need more info or phone / text 0777 5898 558 on the day


VS Summer Handicap


A week on Tuesday (29 July) is ON, meet down by the Res at 7pm at the latest.


The run is 5 and a quarter miles, nearly all off road but mostly good paths.


Afterwards it’s lasagne night at Leo’s, so book by Sunday 27 July stating whether meat or vegetarian lasagne and whether you also want apple pie.




The new England Athletics membership registration system is now up and running and Paul White and I have registered (and paid for) 148 Valley Striders.


If you received membership cards (competition licences) about 3 months ago, these are now out of date and new ones will be on their way to you soon (assuming you’ve paid your VS subs).


If you are one of the 40 or so who have joined since 1 September 2007, then you won’t have had a card previously, but you will get one soon.


The new system has a new set of 7-digit registration numbers to replace the old VLS numbers.  You will find your number on our website using this link .


If a race entry form asks for a UK Athletics or England Athletics or North of England Athletics registration number, this is the number you need.


You’ll also need your new number for discount at Up and Running!
