Oversees trip 2018/2019


This year 15 club runners, together with 9 support crew, set off to conquer the Palma 10k, Half and Full Marathon on 14th October. Unfortunately the Palma heat just about conquered us!  Non the less good times were had, both running and socially.

Alex Ayling 86:05

Lindsey Pearson is now looking at options fo next years trip. If anyone has any recommendations for consideration then please e-mail her (though please don’t make recommendations if you have no intention of coming along) .  

The consensus following Palma is let’s do somewhere cold/cool.  In the past club trips have been to Barcelona, Reyjkavik, Cork, Amsterdam and Budapest, so we are looking for new locations to try and avoid visiting the same city twice.  Other criteria will be multi-distance, preferably with 10k, half and full marathon distances, and as we usually do a long weekend, within reasonable travel time.  


Suggestions are welcome from previous and potential participants. For those who haven’t been before, it is a very casual affair, we usually do touristy stuff in small groups, keep in touch via a WhatsApp group to arrange meets for ad hoc drinks etc, and have one large group meal on the evening following the races, though there is no pressure to join in any group/planned activity. Individuals and couples will sometimes do their own thing for some or all of the time which is absolutely fine - although it’s a club/group trip, it is also your holiday. We do like to support our fellow club members in their races, and this year we had a good support group of non runners giving us all a shout out and taking photos. The trip is open to club members, and partners are also welcome. 


A short list of recommendations will be presented at the AGM.

Committee meetings

The next committee meeting will be held on 8th Jan.- if you have anything which you wish to be discussed please contact or speak to any member of the committee.

September Strider of the Month

Claire Thaper -  Claire continues to make fantastic progress with her running and constantly challenges herself putting a lot of hard training in week after week. She has run a few very long distances in the month in prep for the Yorkshire Marathon (3 x 20 plus Milers) and track work at UAK with impressive times along with two other races...Spen 10k and  Baildon No Watch Race.She is always happy to help and support others in the club and in the running community, as displayed recently at the Great North Run where she selflessly sacrificed her own half marathon PB to help a stranger get to the finish safely and get the medical help they needed.  Claire was so modest, she didn’t even mention it.  Saltaire Striders only found out because the man she helped contacted the Striders website to thank her.  Running is not just about training and good results, it’s also about being supportive within the community.  Claire demonstrated this perfectly a credit to the club and a great person to have around the club.
