Social Mailing List
A new social email list has been setup to help cut down on unwanted emails about things some striders may not be interested in. In future social e-mails will only be sent to this group so if you wish to continue receiving e-mails about social events you will need to subscribe to the group
You can apply to join the group by sending an e-mail to - send the e-mail from the e-mail a/c you wish to use to receive the social e-mails, ideally, this will be the same a/c you use on the main Saltaire Striders emailing list, but it doesn't have to be the same.
Friday 7th October Ladies Book Club

The next meeting of the ladies book club will be on Friday 7th October at Don't Tell Titus : 7.30 pm.
The vote for the next book was won by The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. It was a number one bestseller so it will be available everywhere, including charity shops. The fun book will be 500 Mile Walkies by Mark Wallington.
We'll also be taking suggestions for our next books, since there will be another book club meeting before Christmas.
You can read both of the books, either or neither. As ever, it doesn't matter if you haven't read either because we don't spend that long on book chat.

If you are new to the club then come and join us. No cliques at Saltaire Striders.

August Strider of the Month

CHRIS JONES - Chris ran the full marathon distance for the first time in August with Ben Smith (the 401 marathons guy). During the day he was so up beat & positive throughout. This was his furthest distance & he kept others going as they tired. A real achievement! Chris also does a lot of hard work with the leaders schedule, which must be a real ballache, and he often puts himself down for short runs too to plug gaps when nobody else is available. Chris contributes massively to the club by making sure we have run leaders for all our training nights.

Club Championship

With just 5 races left of the championship season things are starting to heat up in all three leagues. In the premier league Stuart Dunbar has just taken the lead from Helen Love with Tracey Foy in third place. In the first division Frank Masley is still way out in front with the Western family team hot on his tail. Ian Jenkins is still bossing the second division as he has done more races than anyone else in that league but has several ladies (and Kamil) chasing him…

There are still quite a number of people with 0 points and could be facing relegation but it’s not too late just enter a race and add some points. Remember it doesn’t matter where you finish as all times are age graded to try to give a level playing field so you can gain more point than someone who finishes a race in front of you if your age graded score is higher than theirs. For example if Sylvia Ross finishes a park run in 30 minutes and Kamil does it in 18 minutes then Sylvia would be rated at 71.8% and Kamil would be 71.7% and so Sylvia would be ahead on age grade and therefore score higher championship points.

The remaining races are:

Bradford City Runs 5k/10k/13 Road 30th Oct.

Guy Fawkes 10 10m Road 6th Nov

Harriers v Cyclists 6m Fell 12th Nov

The Stoop 5m Fell 18th Dec

Chevin Chase 7m Trail 26th Dec
