7th August - Cross Bay challenge half marathon - Some striders have already signed up for this, why not join us as we cross sea, sand and counties for the 11th Annual Cross Bay Challenge!

The run is a half marathon across the shifting sands of Morecambe Bay. This year the race will be returning to the original point to point challenge that will take you on an adventure right across Morecambe Bay.

You will leave the shore at Hest Bank running towards Ulverston, crossing from Lancashire to Cumbria before arriving at the Flookburgh foreshore.

Due to the unique terrain of the Bay we cannot guarantee the exact distance. However we will, as usual, endeavour to get as close to the 13.1 miles as we possibly can! The final route will be set as soon as the tide departs the shore on the day of the challenge. Our experienced Bay Guides will guide you across the Bay following a safe route but obviously allowing some adventures on the way. In other words we want you to get wet... very wet!

A bus has been booked which will drop us off at the start and collect us at the finish and then go somewhere for food and drink and then return home.

Northern 12 stage road relay - Sunderland 2nd April

SALTAIRE Striders qualified for the National Road Relay Championships at Sutton Park on 16th April beating local rivals Keighley & Craven and Bingley Harriers in the process.

The NORTHERN CHAMPIONSHIPS at Sunderland acted as the qualifier, and the Saltaire club's 24th-place finish in 3hr 14min 8sec was just within the limit for Birmingham.

This was the first time the club had entered the championships for 15 years, and was the first time since changing their name from St Bede's.

Marcin Szoska took time off marathon training to lead off on leg 1 with the fastest Saltaire long leg, and his 32nd-place handover indicated the quality of the top teams.

After the first seven stages, when the four long legs had been completed Will Kerr handed over, in 31st position.

Short legs by James Goodall and Joe Graham were followed by a superb tenth stage by Pete Hopson, whose 11min 39sec took the club up to 27th place.

Matt Richardson consolidated on the penultimate leg before Martin Fillingham on the last leg passed Jarrow, Kendal and, finally, Keighley & Craven in the final mile to clinch the final spot for the Nationals..

Strider of the Month

The nominations for the March Strider of the Month are:

GARY PENNINGTON - Gary's amazing run of form continued in March with a stunning PB of 1:45:28 (a PB by around 4 minutes) in the Cardiff Half Marathon.

GRAHAM CORBETT - Graham enjoyed another fantastic month in March finishing 17th in the Spen 20 (2:22:02) and then running a 1/2 marathon PB in Cardiff of 1:19:35.

VICKI HUSSAIN - Vicki's distance running continued in March when she completed her second and longest to date Ultra Marathon race - the 40 mile (actually nearer 42 mile) Red Rose Ultra (with 6,000 feet of climb) in a time of 10 hours 54 minutes.

HANNAH OLDROYD - After rejoining the club in January Hannah enjoyed an excellent run of results in March. She started the month by being 1st lady in the Anglesey 1/2 marathon in 1:21:27 and was then 4th lady in the Thirsk 10k the following week in 60:50. She was then 1st lady in the Spen 20 (2:12:30) and the Salford 10k (36:37) and finished the month by finishing 1st lady in the British 50k championship (3:36:33) where she set a Scottish All Comers record for the distance.

EMMA CARTLEDGE - In March Emma completed the Cardiff 1/2 marathon in a time of 1:41:12, which was an amazing time given that it was her first race back after a serious injury and being on crutches for 2 months in the autumn. To go within 3 minutes of a PB so early in her comeback was a brilliant achievement.

ALI NASH - Another Strider to complete his longest Ultra Marathon to date in March, Ali completed the 46.6 mile Canalathon in a time of 7 hours 10 minutes. He finished in 4th place and won his age category.

Tuesday Track Sessions

A big fat well done to our regular #tracktuesday tracksters, all of whom are getting faster and putting in some great performances!

In recent weeks, Chris Stott and Alun Griffiths had 2 10k PBs in quick succession, with Alun knocking 4 whole minutes off his previous fastest time. And Chris Jones has produced PBs at both half marathon and 5k distance, going sub 20 at Bradford Park Run. There are loads more examples of great improvements in speed and performance at all distances, from 5k to ultra. Including interval sessions in your weekly training will help you to get faster and stronger – we see it time and time again. Our interval sessions at Keighley track every other Tuesday are attended by ladies and gents of all abilities and we always tailor sessions to meet the needs of everyone who comes along. It costs £2 to use the track. These sessions are separate from the Brian Scobie Wednesday sessions.

Tuesday 5 April saw the start of the Spring/Summer #tracktuesday schedule. We’re focusing on speed on the run-up to the John Carrs in May and then will be building in some speed-endurance ready for longer distances in late Summer/Autumn eg Vale of York HM and Yorkshireman (or half) in September.

Any queries re track get in touch with Ali Nash, Louise Nash or Chris Jones.

Yorkshire Vets Grand Prix Series 2016
The start of the new season of Yorkshire Vets races is just 2 weeks away with the first race at Honley on 24th April.
The Grand Prix is a series of 10 races spread over the year and the county in which runners accumulate points for both individual awards (based on your best 7 races) and for the club. The races are generally about 5 miles long, on a variety of terrain, and suitable for absolutely all abilities. The only restriction is that you have to have reached the grand old age of 35 in order to compete. Each race costs just £5 to enter and as well as the season-long awards there are prizes at each individual race and lots of spot prizes too.
You can register now for the series 
If you want any more info, please ask one of your Vets Captains (Louise Nash & Martin Love) at training. We will send round reminders closer to each race and arrange car-shares wherever possible.
Away runs

Last year we had away runs from Addingham, from Guiseley round the Chevin chase course and the run back from Ilkley.

The first Away run this year will be on Thursday 26th May meeting in the car-park at Ogden Water near Denholme.  There will probably be 3 different runs distances and all runs are social runs and hopefully we can find somewhere to have a drink and some food afterwards.

If you have any suggestions for venues for future away runs then just get in touch.  The venue needs to be within reasonable travelling distance to allow people to get there after work. discount code
Each month we receive a discount code from which gives you 10% discount and free postage & packing.  To obtain the current code please e-mail Jack Verity
