Snake Lane 10 – Entries open today (and likely to be full today)
The race is on 21 February. Entries open today, Saturday 3 October at 10:30 at http://snakelane.pockrunners.com/
Last year’s race sold out in 24 hours, so if you want to run this race, go online this morning!
Food and Annual Running meeting
We have pie and peas back on the menu for Tuesday 6 October.
For 6pm training session / 7:15pm food email firstname.lastname@example.org . For 7pm training session / 8:20pm food email email@example.com . Please choose meat pie or veggie bake (£3.50), and please choose mushy peas or baked beans. Book by 10pm Sunday 4 October.
When everyone is seated (approx. 8:30), we’ll start the “Annual Running Meeting” (which perhaps should be called “Annual Athletics Meeting”) to listen to and discuss reports from the committee, captains and coaches.
A full list of “officers” of the club is at http://valleystriders.org.uk/vscommittee.htm . I’m not sure if anyone is intending to “retire”, but there are always opportunities for people to be involved with the club e.g. by shadowing an existing officer. In particular, help is needed with race organising and relay team management. I started by organising the first Grand Prix Club Championship in 1989 and look where it got me!!!
We are planning “Parents of Junior Runners Meeting” for later in October, please watch this space! The Cycling Club are holding their AGM on 23 October, and we will hold the Valley Striders AGM in November.
Yorkshire Vets Road Relays
These will be held next Saturday (10 October) at Saltaire. Vets is considered 35 for men and women. For most age groups it is 3 runners per team, and a lap is about 3 miles, on road and good riverside paths. Last year I think we entered 4 teams, I remember our M60 team finished comfortably mid table. This year we already have 2 club members for the M50 team so one more runner wanted.
They will accept entries up to next Friday, so if you’re interested in running, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll keep you informed of the likelihood of a team at your age group.
Congratulations if you got an acceptance letter through the post, but if you got a rejection, don’t worry, you have another opportunity as Valley Striders will get 4 places for our members. Please email London@valleystriders.org.uk if you got a rejection. We’ve made a slight revision to the rules for the ballot and I’ll publish these next week
Please ensure you pay to the correct account!
