Strider of the month
For 2016 we are making some changes to the strider of the month.  You will still be able to nominate anyone who you think deserves to be Strider of the month.  Members of the committee will then produce a shortlist and members will be asked to vote for the one member from the shortlist they think deserves to win.

All members nominated for Strider of the month will receive points towards the club personality of the year award.
