North East races
The Pecos continue

The final race in the Peco series is at Temple Newsam on Sun. 11th Feb. 

After 4 races the men ar in 3rd place in the premier division but can be caught by Hyde Park if we don't put in a good final performance.  In the vets league we are in 2nd place just (on countback) but can win it with a good performance.

The ladies are comfortably in second place in division 1 and looking good for promotion to the Premier league for next season but lets make sure.  In the vets they are again looking comfortable in 2nd place.

Club trip Mallorca - October 2018
The Saltaire Striders overseas trip / race for 2018 is Palma in Mallorca.  If you want to be part of the trip then you need to do the following:
Book your flights
Flight out on Friday 12 October with Jet 2 departs at 06:30
Flight back on Monday 15 October with Ryanair departs at 13:45
These are suggested flights for everyone to travel together, and were the cheapest options, however you can book days/times to suit yourself if these don't meet your needs.
Note that prices have been going up and down so you will need to take a call re when you book, waiting may mean prices go down but you run the risk of not getting your preferred flight.
Also note, that there are cheaper options to fly back later in the week if anyone wants to add one or more days onto their trip and other airlines.
Book the hotel
The hotel is Tryp Palma Bellver Hotel.  Please make sure you search for the Mallorca one.
This is centrally located, overlooks the marina, and is reasonably priced.  It is 15/20 minutes walk to the cathedral and the park where the race expo and race start is, and located well for strolling into the old town.
The hotel is right on the bus route which serves the airport for those who want to transfer using public transport.
You can find the hotel on sites like and can reserve without having to pay up front.
For anyone looking for a much cheaper option there is a basic but nice looking hostel - similar to the one we stayed in on the Iceland trip. Contact Lindsey Pearson if you want the details.
Enter your race of choice
Here is the website for the race, which offers marathon, half marathon and 10k options. 
The sooner you enter the better as the entry fees raise periodically over time.
Let Lindsey Pearson know you are going
Please let Lindsey Pearson know if you are going on the trip, and if anyone else is joining you.  She will make arrangements for airport/hotel transfers if required, discuss whether we want trip t.shirts, arrange social activity etc.
Partners, including non runners are more than welcome.
Please do get in touch if you want any information or help with your booking.
AGM 2017

The minutes of the 2017 AGM are available on the club website.
Proposed changes to club training sessions

The proposed changes to the training sessions and feedback has been reviewed and will commence on a 3 month trial period from 1st March.  The only changes to the proposals are that Monday night warm-ups will not change and will continue to be led by the individual run leaders.

We are also looking at the possibility of introducing a Wednesday night social run from Caroline St. depending on interest and availability of leaders (watch this space).

Please provide any feedback on the new trainging sessions (once you have experinced them) to Jack Verity
