Leeds parkrun 3 August – runners and vests needed


We’re all set up for Saturday, so thank you to everyone who has volunteered to set up and/or marshal and/or be a pacer, and thank you in advance to everyone who is coming to run.


Just a few extra notes

·         Set-up people please come for just after 8:00 (unless Alex has said earlier!)

·         Pacers please come for 8:30 (unless Alex has said earlier!).  I recommend that before the race you attempt the first 1km (or even 2km) at your intended pace speed and see what it feels like.  Don’t forget your watch!

·         Runners please come in your VS vests.

·         Marshals please bring your VS vests so that you can lend them to any new Striders who haven’t yet got a vest.

·         Anyone else wanting to help will be most welcome and found a job to do.

·         Everyone please help clear up afterwards!

·         Then we’ll go to the University Union Refectory (café!) (look out for the blue plaque for the “Who – Live at Leeds”)

Leeds Country Way – Sunday 1 September


We have entered 5 teams, runners have now been allocated to teams, the team lists are at,uk/vsteams.htm .


We currently have 7 reserves.  (we had 8 a couple of days ago).  Anyone else wanting to run (or be a reserve) still email .


Shortly we will be appointing leg captains who are responsible for co-ordinating recce runs and, on the day, getting all 10 runners to the start at the right time and making sure everyone has race numbers.


If any of the reserves want to come on one or more of the recce runs, we’ll put them in touch with the leg captains of any leg they are interested in running,




Edale Skyline – message from Steve Dixon


Entries are now open



Skyrac Track Results


Joe Sherman runs for Skyrac on the track.  In the West Yorkshire Track Event last weekend he came 6th in the 600mtrs in a time of 1:56:98 and 10th in the 75mtrs in a time of 12:40 - pretty good for a 10 year old runner whose strength is endurance running (parkrun PB 20:42 at Roundhay)


Pudsey 10k (correction)


 54 Alan Walsh   45:30



See you on Saturday and/or Tuesday!
