Subject: V S Update - Training This Tuesday, Harewood Marshals, Events, Calderdale Way, Yorks Road Relays results
This was supposed to be a full V S Update, but it has been a busy weekend for me, so some items are carried forward to the next edition
This Tuesday (21 September) – training from Harewood

After running one mile together, we’ll split into 2 groups, 8 miles for faster runners (7-8 minute mile pace), 5 miles for slower (9-10 minute mile pace), NB this session is not suitable if your road running pace is slower than 10 minute miling.
Harewood Marshals (3 October)
We still need about 15 marshals, but if we get more then some Striders will be able to run the race.
If you’ve already put your name down, thank you, and if you have a preference for where you’d like to marshal, let me know, also if you’d like to run (if we have sufficient marshals), let me know.
I’d like to have all marshalling positions allocated by this Friday and get a full list issued next weekend, so if you’ve not yet volunteered but are available, please please email back by Friday. Thanks!
It’s the Horsforth 10k this coming Sunday. Is anyone available to hand out Harewood Entry Forms at this race?
The West Yorks XC League starts on 10 October. 41 Striders are entered. If you’ve not entered, you’re too late for the first race but let us know email@example.com if you want to be entered for the rest of the series (second race on Saturday 30 October). NB the first race is a V S Grand Prix race.
The next VS Fell Championship race is the Withins Skyline on Sunday 24 October. This race is (in my opinion) suitable for less experienced off-road runners.
Also on Saturday 30 October is the first Leeds Parkrun Handicap Relay (teams of 3, each runs 1 lap). More info in next V S Update (or just look at www.parkrun.com )
On Sunday 31 October is the Cancer Research 10k at Harewood. Abbey Runners and ourselves each provide 12 marshals for this event. Let me know if you can help!
Striders winter training regime officially starts on Tuesday 5 October. For Tuesdays, first and third Tuesdays meet at Leos, session at High Ashes. Second Tuesday is track at Carnegie. Fourth Tuesday meet at Leos, session at Church Lane Meanwood. Thursday is still from Scott Hall but different routes.
NB wearing a reflective bib or top is MANDATORY for Striders winter sessions, you will not be able to run with us if not appropriately attired!
NB Tuesday 5 October is lasagne night – email to firstname.lastname@example.org
