This is a free race open to members of the running club

What is the Course and when do I run?

You need to run the usual Striders 10k route at Ladybower as fast as you can

Start by the fence below

After 5k you cross a bridge – at the end of the bridge there is a gate – turnback here (DO NOT TOUCH IT!)

Strava Route link:

You can run as many times as you want in August. First run can only be on or after 3rd August 2020. Last run must be on 31st August. 2020

Where do I submit by Race Time?

Enter name, date and time on the google form. Link below:

Race referee Richard Pegg will spot check the entries against Strava (although you don’t have to use Strava to participate in the race). Otherwise it relies on honesty.

Each week the race placings will be posted on the web site and Facebook.

Are there any prizes?

We will provide medals for first and second place (with a Voucher for first) in the following categories:

  • Senior Men and Women
  • Over 40 Men and Women
  • Over 50 Men and Women
  • Over 60 Men and Women
  • Over 70 Men and Women

Anything else I need to know?

A few main things:

  1. If running in a group keep to a maximum of 6
  2. If running solo, then let someone know so if anything bad happens then they know where you are
  3. When travelling to the start remember some cash for the car park or park safely in the layby.
  4. It’s a timed run in a public area so please be courteous to other users of the path
  5. Have Fun!

Any questions contact Richard Pegg via the contact form or on Facebook etc.

Good Luck!
