Ladies Book Club

The next ladies’ book club will take place on Friday 22 June at 7.30 pm at Martinez in Bingley.

Martinez is on the main road through Bingley and is close to the station.  The books are Ready Player One and Lucky (Jackie Collins).

The former is available everywhere because it has just been released as a film. Dog eared copies of the latter, with gold bits on the cover, can be got from second hand book websites for 75p plus P&P.

If you haven’t been before and you are a lady why not give it a go? No cliques allowed in the ladies’ book club, and we don’t take the literature too seriously.
Away Runs


The June away run will be the Saltaire Stampede race organised by Racebest from Saltaire Brewery.

A 5 mile (approx.) handicap trail race alongside the River Aire and Leeds and Liverpool canal. The race will start and finish at Saltaire Brewery, with start times determined by your current runbritain handicap score (or recent parkrun performances for runners who do not have a runbritain handicap). The race should end with a stampede along Dockfield Road back into the brewery yard, with everyone having an equal chance of winning. Even if you don’t win, you can take consolation in your finisher’s beer voucher: good for a pint of any of Saltaire Brewery’s wonderful cask beers. The brewery’s tap room and VIP bar will both be open until 10.00pm, so the sooner you finish, the longer you will have to slake your thirst!


26th July - Catch the 18:57 train from Baildon to Ilkley (fare £3.20) and then run back over the moors.  Everyone welcome.

April Strider of the Month

Hannah Oldroyd - Nothing else needs saying!! - our perennial Queen of Speed who took on jet lag and the heat in London to produce an astonishing result of second lady outside the elite field and first British lady. Wearing her Saltaire Striders vest and smiling the whole way round, Hannah has done the club proud. Followed only 3 days after the marathon with a 17:30 5k for 6th overall at the Even Splits race then first lady at Bradford 10k and all the time being modest about her achievements.
