Junior Mile and Autumn Handicap - Tuesday 20 September

Please note that due to the dark evenings, all races are brought forward 20 minutes from their "usual" times.Also note that these times are British Summer Time NOT "Valley Striders Time" (VST is 5 to 10 minutes after BST).

All races are free to enter and all races are open to club members and non-members including friends of existing members and juniors on the waiting list.

Meeting place for race start and postcode for parking are on the front page of the website www.valleystriders.org.uk.Note that it is a 3 minute jog / 6 minute walk from Alwoodley Lane to the start.

On the night, we will be asking parents of juniors to marshal along the half mile length of the junior route as (especially if it is a nice evening) there are likely to be walkers, dogs and bicycles on the route.

We need about 6 marshals for the 5 mile race, if you are able to do this, please email back, or text me on 07775 898 558.The race canít take place without these marshals, we have 2 so far.

Training on 27 September

7pm sessions at Leos, see front page of website www.valleystriders.org.uk for details.Not sure where 6pm sessions will be, please refer to the website nearer the date.
