Meanwood Valley Trail Race (from Steph)

Thank you to all volunteers who have emailed the help address. I will respond to you all soon, too many holidays have got in the way!

We still need more volunteers so please email help@valleystriders.org.uk if you are available. If you would like to run then please say so and ask one of your friends or family to volunteer on your behalf.

Please can parents of juniors help out so our senior members can run.

We are a bit low on entries so please spread the word amongst your running friends and family. A Facebook event has been created to help you spread the word.

Thanks

Steph

SB = season best

The majority of Striders are getting faster each run. Is it due to tarmac getting warmer, atmospheric conditions or super training?

Junior 100 metre and 75 metre trials

Results of the sprint "races" that we've done at GSAL on Tuesday evenings can be found at http://valleystriders.org.uk/vsjuniorresults.htm

I'm working on updating this page to include all the summer races, and the two track and field leagues.

There were 12 juniors at this weekend's track and field meeting at York, results here http://www.cityofyorkathleticclub.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/York-12-aug-results-.xlsx and I'll publish the V S results in the next V S Update.
