V S Summer Barbecue on Friday 11 August, deadline Sunday 6 August

Following the last 2 successful summer barbecues we have decided to repeat the event again this year. The evening will include food, drinks, hopefully some music and definitely some games. We'll provide more details as things are firmed up.

All Valley Striders members are welcome to attend, along with partners and kids. The event is being promoted to both the running and the cycling section.

The costs are 11 adults and 6.50 kids - includes main course (including steak) and dessert. Veggie options available.

We have set up events on 3 Facebook groups - VSAC, VSAC Juniors and VSCC. Please click 'going' on one of these Facebook events if you definitely plan to attend so we know you are coming, and so that you can be kept up to date with plans.

Please also post on Facebook if you require a vegetarian option.

If you're not on Facebook, please email bbq@valleystriders.org.uk

We will need your booking via Facebook (or e-mail) AND you will need to pay in advance (by 10pm on Sunday 6th August at the latest) to secure your place.

Online banking should be paid to sort code 53-70-00, a/c number 72143851 (note that this is NOT the normal VS account), reference to include your name and the word BBQ".

Hope you can make it.

Leeds Country Way - Sunday 3 September (from Bob)

We have entered 4 teams into the LCW Relay. Myra has emailed to say that we currently have 47 runners, i.e. we definitely need one more and we definitely need some reserves.

All abilities welcome. For the current vacancy someone around 24 minutes for parkrun would be ideal. For reserves, anyone with 2 legs would be ideal, and if you do get called up we will try to match you with someone of a similar pace (we promise not to pair you with John Hobbs).

If you haven't signed up yet and are now available, please email teams@valleystriders.org.uk .

Sunday Training Runs

Sunday Runs are organised on our club Facebook page. If you aren't on Facebook and would like the details of the runs emailed to you please email sunday@valleystriders.org.uk and we will keep you informed of the meeting point and options available. There are usually at least 2 different paced groups running anything from 10 - 20+ miles (usually with additional options to shorten the route) so there is a good chance there will be someone for you to run with.

Abbey Dash - Sunday 5 November
