The St Albans Striders membership year runs from April to March each year, concurrent with the England Athletics membership year.
The cost for club membership for the full year or any part of it is £27. If you have volunteered at a Striders event between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2019 then you are eligible for volunteer membership at the discounted rate of £17.
Another season of the Mid-Week Road Race League is nearly upon us and we want as many of you as possible to participate.
For those who are not familiar with this, it’s a local league involving other Herts running clubs. This involves a series of 10k races each hosted by a different club in the league, which take place on Thursday evenings from May to July.
The races are free for any paid-up Striders members and suitable for all abilities. The way the scoring works means that wherever you are place in the field could help the overall team score. Plus there’s always a good buffet put on by the host club to look forward to afterwards.
Below are the dates for this year's fixtures, all starting at 7.45pm. More details will be sent out about each fixture nearer the time.
Thursday, 23rd May – St Albans
Thursday 13th June - Royston
Thursday 20th June – Chingford (Club Champs 50 point race)
Thursday 4th July – Trent Park
Thursday, 11th July – Welwyn Garden City (Mob Match)
Please sign up if you would like to run in any of the fixtures. It doesn’t matter if you can’t make the first one or can only make one. Please note that you only need to sign up once and not for each race.
We will try and issue as many numbers as possible two weeks (on a Tuesday and Thursday) leading up to the first race. Please note that you must also keep your race number for the whole series so do not throw it away after the first or any of the races, as we have very few spares.
Please note that all runners must wear a Striders vest, so make sure you get your order in ahead of time if you don't have one already.
We look forward to seeing you there. If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org
