The Striders 10k is back for 2021!
When: Friday 23 July 2021
Where: Starts and finishes on the dam head next to the Yorkshire Bridge pub, near Bamford. (see map below)
This is the annual club championship race and is open to all members of Steel City Striders and their guests and is free to enter.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have limited numbers for 2021 and everybody must be pre-entered (see club email for details on how to do this). Numbers to be collected on the night at Heatherdene car park (A6013, Hope Valley S33 0BY), a 10 minute jog from the start. There are public toilets next to the car park. The race itself is an out and back course on the traffic free track alongside Ladybower reservoir, starting and finishing at the dam head.
The race is designed to be a true club event where everyone in the club can get involved either racing, marshalling, officiating or just cheering the runners from the side: a great opportunity for new (and old!) members to meet and socialise with other members in the club. Pace and speed are unimportant, its a race for all members of all abilities to enjoy.
There will be no post-race social or buffet in 2021 because of Covid-19 restrictions. We aim to bring this back in 2022.
Note: For all intents and purposes this is a trail race along the side of the reservoir. It is not UK Athletics registered so will not be on Power of 10 etc. Its just a fun night for members of the club to race.
Road shoes will be fine as the trail is compacted in most places.
