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.
Sunday, 28th October, is the first Sunday League cross country fixture at Cheshunt Park. The race starts at 11.00 and the route is 3 laps around the park, approx 5 miles. You don't need to register, just arrive with your Striders vest and running kit, and look out for the Striders flag! You can leave belongings, but they will be unsupervised during the race. At the end you will be given a token which you need to give to either Rich or Katie, and they will record your position, name and DOB. Please don't take the token home!!

In order to maintain a good relationship with the Local Council and Golf Club please be mindful of the following:-
There are no changing facilities but toilets and refreshments are available in the Golf Centre nearby. Showers are NOT available. Only food and drink purchased on site can be consumed on the premises. Dirty shoes are not allowed on the premises; this applies to all users.
Providing the ground is not too wet a field will be available for car parking. Follow the Marshals directions and car share as much as possible. ENTRY IS NOT POSSIBLE UNTIL AFTER 9:30 DUE TO A JUNIOR PARK RUN. No headphones allowed.
The hosts, Broxbourne Runners, are one of the smaller Sunday League clubs and they would definitely appreciate help from other clubs with course marshalling and funnel stewarding. If you are unable to run but you are able to help, please contact John Nugent on email@example.com Marshals will need to be available for a briefing by 10.20am. We look forward to seeing a lot of you next Sunday.
Don't forget the clocks go back an hour!
