North East races
Hannah Oldroyd selected for Great Britain

An eight-strong team of British athletes have been selected for this year’s IAU 50km World Championships on Friday 11 November in Doha. Comprised of four females and four males, the multi-experienced team will take on ten consecutive 5km loops in Qatar’s capital.

Heading up the female participants will be Hannah Oldroyd, who ran a strong personal best time of 3:34:33 in Perth’s 50km back in March to claim victory in the female field, finishing 8th overall. The time marked a twenty minute improvement from her first shot at 50km back in 2014, and the Saltaire Striders athlete will strive for further progress in Doha.

Team leader Walter Hill commented: “We’ve selected two strong and diverse teams for this year’s IAU 50km World Championships, both of whom should be aiming for the podium.”

The full British Athletics team for the World IAU 50km in Doha, Qatar on November 11th:


Ross Houston, Michael Kallenberg, Andrew Davies, Stuart Robinson


Rebecca Hilland, Amy Clements, Hannah Oldroyd, Samantha Amend

Social Events
1st July Gents Book Club

It might not match the ladies' booze, I mean book, club for wine consumption, but there is a Striders gents book club, too.
Next meeting is in the Old Glen House pub, Shipley Glen, Baildon on Friday 1st July at 7:30 pm. The book we're reading is "Not Forgetting the Whale" by John Ironmonger.
Come along and talk tall tales (not hard if you're a runner) and have a pint. All welcome. Except girls, of course. They've got their own version.
Esholt Relay -Tuesday 12th July

Esholt relay v Baildon Runners.  4 x 1.5m off-road.  If you've not done this before its a fun event, we will make up the teams on the night.  Meet in the public car-park off Station Road in Esholt village at 7:00.  Afterwards there will be food in the Woolpack Inn in Esholt.
15th July Red Lion trip
The big bus will depart Shipley Bus Station at 5.00pm…Saltaire Shell Garage at 5.10pm
The special limited to 16 places Bingley bus will depart Bingley Rail Station at 5.15pm

For those who are new to the club, or have not been on the Dales trip before, we set off to a location in the Dales and then we run to the Red lion pub in Burnsall. Please arrive in running attire, you can leave your change of clothes on the bus which will be waiting for you at the Red lion. There is a room for the ladies to shower and get changed in. The men have the certified organic option of the river Wharfe!
We have drinks and dinner and then the bus drivers will take us all back to Bingley/Saltaire/Shipley before we turn into pumpkin.
We are looking at new running routes for this year. As in  previous years there will be more than one run option and the main thing to remember is this is a social run, the fast boys (+girls)  can run fast and behave like Border Collies herding us all in a group but it is not about racing.
Book your place with Dairine - wives/husbands/significant others are welcome….they are welcome to run but it’s not compulsory and many prefer to sample the cask ales while we do the hard work. If you need to leave work a little early perhaps book the time off now? The trip is very popular and is already 2/3rds full and when both buses are full that’s it.
Menu choices – sooner rather than later - to Dairine.
There are 5 starters, mains and puddings to choose from. Please choose one option from each
Chicken liver pate, Cumberland sauce, granary toast
Eggs benedict, crispy parma ham, hollandaise sauce. (V without ham)
Charsui Pork
Seared Mackerel, soft goats cheese, beetroot
Creamy feta salad, basil, beetroot
Salmon and shrimps, black pudding, egg, watercress, hollandaise sauce
Lamb stew, parsnip mash, spinach
Cottage pie, sautéed cabbage
Butternut squash, goats cheese, lentil pethivier, tomato sauce, spinach, mushroom. (pethivier – is a sort of pastry pie)
Roast pork, seasoning, roast potatoes, apple sauce
Lemon tart
Apple pie and custard
Sticky toffee pudding
Rice pudding, stewed rhubarb
The cost per person, which includes the bus fare and food, is £27.50. Please pay directly into the Saltaire Striders account and let Dairine  and Richard Stone know that you have paid.
Absolute deadline for menu choices and payment is June 30th.
Hope to see lots of new Striders as it is always a lovely evening – what’s not to like, running and food, and beer.
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.
