John Carr 5k series

The entries are now open for the John Carr 5k series on 3rd, 10th and 17th May on the Racebest website.  However, we are going to need a good number of members to help with marshalling and other race day duties (Richard Stone will be touting for volunteers in the near future).

So if you are wanting to do a race maybe think about entering 1 or 2 and helping at the others or providing a friend or family member to help whilst you are running.

Ladies Book Club

The next ladies' book club meeting will be at Don't Tell Titus on Friday 7th April, at 7.30 pm.
This time, on a one-off basis, we will be allowing boys to attend, in a sort of 'parkrun tourism' arrangement.
Our books are:
The Tea Planter's Wife by Dinah Jeffries
Love Story by Erich Segal
You can read both books, either or neither. As usual I'll lead a discussion on each book before we settle into the wine drinking. Don't Tell Titus have kindly reserved an area for us, because they love us.
Everybody is welcome, irrespective of whether you've attended in the past. See you there!
Club trip to Burnsall

Put Friday 21st July in you diary for the annual trip to Burnsall.

For the newer members, we take a coach from Shipley/Saltaire/Bingley to somewhere near Burnsall (but not too near) then get off the bus in our running gear and head off on foot to the Red Lion at Burnsall.  After a shower for the ladies and a quick dip in the river Wharfe for the men we have a meal in the Red Lion and then get back on the bus at last orders for the trip back to Striderland.

Dave Armstrong

January Strider of the Month
LINDSEY PEARSON - Lindsey has taken on the organisation of the beginners group when she could have been forgiven for sitting at home and nursing her injury. This time she has been faced with a far bigger job than she might have expected and has coped brilliantly. Every week Lindsey plans a different route for each of the seven groups and goes down to training twice a week before and after each run to make sure they are all in the correct groups and that they are all OK.

Lindsey is also the clubs welfare officer and in that role she makes sure that any injured or ill Striders are not forgotten by the club. And she’s there for the highs as well as the lows, even hand knitting amazing toys to welcome strider babies.
The Pecos rallying call

An agonising 12 extra places would've seen the ladies finish 4th rather than 6th in the 4th race of the series, which means they are now unfortunately in the relegation zone. However, all is not lost, where there's a Will there's a Way, it's not over till the fat lady sings etc etc......we have 3 of our ladies in the top 10 standings overall!!?? Team Saltaire ladies, you ARE dam good! You WILL survive!

We need all ladies rallying on the fields of Roundhay to ensure we kick ass and have a final day party......Guys, we need you all to! We can't be complacent, let's finish the job and push ourselves up the league table for a podium finish.

Think we all need to do a Klinsman mud dive at the end of the last race to mark another end to a successful season.
