A message from the Events Team – Yorkshire Vets Race – Tuesday 26th June


Tuesday 26 June is the date of Valley Striders hosting the Yorkshire Veterans Race at Leos for the fourth year.  The race starts at 7:30pm and is approx. 5 miles round the woods near Leos.


We need about 25 people to marshal and you’ll need to be there at 6:45 prompt to be taken to your marshaling point by one of the team leaders.  We also need a few people at 5pm or 5:30pm to set out the route and the start/finish area.  And another group of 4 just after 6pm to help with car parking.  If we have enough marshals then “spares” will be able to run (you needn’t be a vet). 


If you can marshal please email and also say whether or not you would like to run if we have sufficient marshals.  Ideally please reply by Sunday 17th.


Thanks, from Ian, Geoff, Dan and Bob.


PS Leeds Half marshals - thanks to John Hallas, Eric Howell, Bob Jackson, Paul Kaiser, Peter & Joyce Lambert, Sinead O'Brien, Victoria Pace, Ian Place, Andy Settle, Sharon Tansley, John & Pat Umpleby who marshalled and to Steve O who co-ordinated with the Run For All team. 


A message from the Social Sec - Valley Striders Band Night – Friday 29th June


Dear Striders


The Valley Striders Band night is fast approaching which is to be held at the end of this month on Friday 29th June 2012. Doors open at 7.30pm and the night will end at 11pm (or when we get kicked out).


This is Tony Haygarth’s band (a fellow Valley Strider) and they’re said to be very good playing various types of music. They’re also open to requests on the night.


The cost will be £12.50 per person and this cost will cover the band, food to be provided by Tony and the venue which is Leos. Partners, wives and friends are also welcome so bring them along.


I need to get a commitment on numbers quite quickly now and we can’t just have people turning up on the night without advance booking. If I can’t get enough takers, we will have to cancel which will be a shame. As it is now less than 3 weeks away, can everyone please check their diaries and confirm if you will be attending to


Can everyone do this by Sunday 17th please.


I will then be selling tickets so if you’ve already said yes, come and see me to buy one.


Thanks guys and look forward to seeing you all on the 29th.
