The St Albans Striders membership year runs from April to March each year, concurrent with the England Athletics membership year.
If you have volunteered at a Striders event between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2020 then you are eligible for volunteer membership at a discounted rate.
We aim to have 2 club handicaps a year, normally one in the spring(April) and one in the autumn (September).
The Striders handicap has been around since the early days of Striders with the first event held in 1985. The race is a 4 mile friendly race which allows everyone to have the chance of breaking the tape first! This race is the traditional handicap, which you can run with watches - first across the line wins. In order to stage the fairest race, we need everyone to submit race times detailed below. We also need enough time to check the handicap times are fair - so the following will apply:
There are no entries on the day
Please supply your 5k PB within last 2 years (parkrun times count)
Please supply your most recent 5k time
Please supply most recent race time and distance
All submitted paces / times may be adjusted (we will be checking fastest times!)
Don’t forget to join us after the race, for drinks in the King Harry Pub.
