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.
Despite racing generally taking a back seat to preparations for the festive season at this time of the year, over 40 Striders took part in the third fixture in the cross-country Sunday League at Fairlands Valley in Stevenage this week. Heavy rain in recent days meant runners faced quagmire conditions on parts of the course, although the race itself was run in bright winter sunshine.
Jonathan Scott and cross-country captain Richard Evans were the first Striders home, followed by Jordan Lister and Mike Martin. Lucy Jones and Wendy Walsh were fastest of the Striders women.
