Leaving Collection for Tony and Trina

Thanks to everyone who donated, we raised 200.

Leeds Country Way (from Myra)

Hopefully, all of those allocated a leg have had an email introducing you to the other runners on your leg so that you can arrange recces. Please email teams@valleystriders.org.uk if you haven't.

If you're available and would like to run but haven't told us yet, please email teams@valleystriders.org.uk. We're looking for reserves for now but based on previous years there's a decent chance you'll be asked to run.

Track & Field at City of York AC - Sunday 12 August and Saturday 1 September

Because of the World Cup Final, the summer league meeting planned for 15 July has been rescheduled to 1 September. More details to follow, but all athletes must be at least 9 years old.

Consequently the Open meeting planned for 1 September (which was due to have an under-9 category) has been cancelled - I think it is unlikely to be rescheduled.

A new meeting for junior athletes (under 15 on 31 August 2018) (including under 9's) has been added on Sunday 12 August. It starts at 11a.m.

Events available (ages on 31 August so for example under 11 is those who've just finished school year 4 or 5)
Under 7 - 60m Lollipop Run (FREE, just turn up at the start)
Under 9 - 75m, 600m, Long Jump.
Under 11 - Hurdles, 75m, 600m, Long Jump, Turbo Javelin
Under 13 - Hurdles, 100m, 200m, 800m, Long Jump, High Jump, Javelin
Under 15 - Hurdles, 100m, 300m, 800m, Long Jump, High Jump, Javelin.
Parents, coaches fun races - 100m, Mile. Free entry to those officiating on the day.

Maximum 3 events per day, Entries in advance at 3 an event or 8 for 3 events. Entries on the day at 4 an event or 10 for 3 events.

Please email juniors@valleystriders.org,uk for more information. I will send entry forms off on Tuesday 7 August for anyone wanting to get the discounted rate.

Extra practice for Long Jump will be available from 7pm on the Tuesday evenings when we are at GSAL (including 24 July), and we may be able to arrange javelin training for another Tuesday.
