The Pecos are here

The Pecos are a series of 5 trail/cross-country races throughout the winter usually about 4.5/5 miles with lots of mud, great club camararderie and chocolate!  If you haven't done them before give them a try.

10th Dec. Golden Acre Park
7th Jan. Roundhay Park
21st Jan. Middleton Park
11th Feb. Temple Newsam

Race 1 was at Nostell Priory on 26th Nov.  60 striders (38 men and 22 ladies made it to the start line on a cold bright morning to tackle the 5 sticky miles.  The ladies finished a fine 2nd in league 1 to kick off their promotion campaign with Hannah Oldroyd making a fleeting return from New Zealand winning the race.  The men also finished 2nd in the premier league behind newly promoted Wharfedale Harriers with last years champions Valley Striders down in 4th place.

Social Events


The 2017 AGM will be held on Thursday 7th December at Caroline Street Social Club. The club run for that night will be from Caroline Street rather than Nuffield - in past years, this has been a set time out-and-back on the road to Bingley. All  Striders are encouraged to attend the AGM - a fantastic buffet will be provided and we have the largest room at the Social Club this year!
Christmas meal
This year's Christmas meal will be in the private function suite at The Aagrah, Shipley. This will take place on the evening of Saturday 16th December.

As a running club, we are going for gold - the gold menu to be exact! Food will be served in a banqueting style so that we can all pick and choose as we see fit. For just £21.95, we will be served a selection of starters, main courses, sundries, a dessert, and coffee and mints. Additional vegetarian options can be provided on request and non-spicy food can also be catered for if required - please get in touch if you need more information.

For the first time, we will be taking payments via WebCollect -

Pie & Peas
The thoroughly ridiculous Strava-art, Christmas jumper and pie & peas night will take place on Thursday 21st December. Last year featured a wonky reindeer and an inappropriate snowman. A really fun night with pie & peas provided by the club and a chance to have a final run and drink together before Christmas. Again, more details will follow in due course.
Remember, every single one of you is a member of this running club. As such, you are all encouraged to attend any/all of the events! We hope to see lots of our newer runners joining the longer standing members to celebrate together during the festive period. We are all Saltaire Striders!

October Strider of the Month

Stuart Dunbar for his amazing performance at the Chester Marathon in which he ran a PB of 2:53:06, which made him 1st V55 in the England Masters competition and 2nd V55 in the race overall! For his continuing commitment to leading Thursday runs and the work he does behind the scenes working out the club championship points and updating the spreadsheet, and for proving to us all that cross-training (ie cycling to work) is an excellent way for time-limited runners to maintain peak performance. And all done with quiet modesty.
