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.

School friends complete Iron Man challenge to boost Bradford charity

LIFELONG friends of a teacher, husband and father who died tragically young from leukaemia have raised £2,000 for a Bradford charity by doing an Iron Man challenge.

Oliver Goodyear, of Baildon, was aged 37 when he died a year ago and Salts Grammar schoolmates John Pegington, Jennifer Willingham, Neil Sugden and Mr Pegington’s wife Mary, all from Baildon, took part in the Lakesman Triathlon in Keswick in aid of the Annette Fox Leukaemia Research Fund which is based at Bradford Royal Infirmary.

Mr Goodyear, who taught English at Tong High School, left a wife, Laura and three-year-old daughter Mary.

”At Salts Grammar a large group of us were really close and have all kept in contact.”

“Ols was part of the group and just a great friend, husband and dad,” said accountant Mr Pegington, who works at Manchester’s Christie Hospital.

“At school he was very intelligent and, passionate about books and music.

“He worked as a freelance music journalist in Bradford for a while, then went into teaching.

“Ols wasn’t sporty himself and would have thought doing an Iron Man competition was absolutely ridiculous!

“It’s not an especially big charity, but it does fund research and provides extra things for patients which the NHS can’t fund.

“The way we did the Lakesman was my wife Mary swam the 2.4 miles, Neil did the 112 bike ride and Jennifer ran the full marathon - and I did the whole thing.”

Note: Our own Saltaire Striders ladies captain Jennifer Willingham completed the marathon section for the relay team in a very respectable 3:35

The Annette Fox Leukaemia Research Fund was set up in memory of a 17-year-old Bradford girl who died of leukaemia in 1980 aged 17.

Its aims are to provide financial assistance to improve the comfort and care of patients with leukaemia and other serious blood disorders

“We are only a small charity and this will make a huge difference and enable us to continue with our work,” said its fundraiser Michelle Adam.

Stephen Curran, head teacher at Tong High School said: “Mr Goodyear taught English at Tong High School for many years.

“He was a dedicated teacher, friend and encourager. He enriched the lives of countless young people at Tong. He is sorely missed.”

Strider of the Month

- In 2013 Dave was told he would never run again, but in May 2016 he did his first race after his horrific injury. His determination, combined with the support of the NHS, his retired Strider wife Dot and others, helped one of the club’s longest-serving members to make a remarkable return to competition at the Ilkley Trail as the ‘bionic man’, after battling niggles such as double vision, a smashed pelvis and several other broken bones. He also didn't pick an easy race to make his come back, but did the very tough & hilly 7 mile trail race with a smile on his face as always. Welcome back Dave.

- In June Tim continued his run of ultras. Not content with running Ultra races organised by other clubs Tim decided that he wanted to try to complete the whole of the BMWR on his own. Yes the whole way round not just one leg! Those club members who have run single legs of the relay know how tough it is so can only imagine how hard it must be to complete the whole thing, especially on your own. Yet Tim did it. Around 50 miles and around 5,000 feet of climb and in the amazing time of around nine hours. A magnificent achievement.
