GDPR - message from England Athletics

England Athletics is currently asking people involved in the sport, particularly as athletes, coaches or officials to log in to their England Athletics profile to confirm details including their mailing preferences.

This is being done due to important changes in the ways England Athletics will be communicating with the sport in the future and the new General Data Protection Regulations.

If you have not yet done so, please go to www.englandathletics.org/myprofile

If you don't know your URN, then see www.valleystriders.org.uk/vsmemreg.htm.

If you've forgotten your password, use the Forgotten Password link. In the event that you have not received a link / reminder within one hour, please check your spam and junk folders. If you still can't find the email, it is likely that the email address on their system is out of date, please email membership@valleystriders.org.uk and we can correct this for you.

You can then update or confirm your details. This will enable you to receive key information and other information in line with your stated preferences.

Tuesday Training and Food

Tuesday 5 June - all sessions from Leos (including navigation session, see below), and food afterwards, on the menu will be pie and peas. To order, please email
- earlyfood@valleystriders.org.uk (for food at 7:15pm after the 6pm session)
- food@valleystriders.org.uk (for food at 8:30pm after the 7pm session)
before 10pm on Sunday 3rd, saying whether you want a full portion (4) or a half portion (2), whether you want meat pie or veggie bake, and whether you want baked beans or mushy peas.

Tuesday 12 June - 6pm sessions at GSAL, 7pm session at Beckett Park.

NB times for juniors running 100metres at GSAL on 29 May can be found at www.valleystriders.org.uk/Junior-100m-29May2018.xls

Thursday Training

We have a new Thursday session to bridge the gap between the two current groups. The inaugural session will be this Thursday, ready to run at 7pm from Scott Hall sports centre. Please aim to arrive about 6:50-6:55. The session will be 9-10 min miling for approx 6 miles, with stops to regroup.

The other two groups will continue as usual - see Facebook posts for both of these as locations vary in the summer.

York Track and Field

Four VS juniors are pre-entered for the meeting this Saturday (2 June). Entries are also available on the day, see http://www.cityofyorkathleticclub.net/summer-league/

The remaining meetings are Saturday 16 June, Sunday 15 July and Saturday 1 September. The final meeting also has an under 9 category (school years 2 and 3). Enquiries to juniors@valleystriders.org.uk

Navigation for beginners session on Tuesday 5 June (from Simon Vallance)

Do you have little or no experience of using an OS map and compass and would like to learn more? Or you may know the basics in theory but haven't really practiced, especially running on a bearing in low visibility in open country.

Perhaps there are off-road races you fancy trying but they require you to carry a map and compass, and you are worried you might actually have to use them! Or maybe you have run in such races just following others and hoping for the best!

Mick Loftus and Simon Vallance are offering two navigation lessons, one for complete beginners and one for 'improvers'. If you wish, you could do both.

The beginner session will be at and around Leos on Tuesday 5 June

The improver session will be at Ilkley on a Tuesday in July (date to be agreed).

For full details see www.valleystriders.org.uk/up180524.htm

If you are interested please email Mick at mickloftus@gmail.com letting us know which session you would like to attend. Alternatively you can join the events on the VS AC page.
