V S Xmas Party -  Friday 12 December

 

Bookings are now being taken for the Christmas Party to be held on Friday 12th December 2013 here at Leos.

Tickets will cost somewhere between £14 and £16 (we’ve yet to book the band) and to book your place please email xmas@valleystriders.org.uk by Sunday 7 December. Veggie option available, please say in your email.  There will be no admittance on the night without pre-booking.

We’ll confirm the price next week, then please make payment.

Hooded Tops (Adults and Juniors) – Deadline for Xmas orders - Sunday 23 November 2014

 

Message from Mr Kit – Last chance to order a hooded top ahead of Christmas. The options / costs are:

·         Adult Black Hoody (no zip) - £20

·         Adult Black or Grey Hoody (full zip) – £24.50

·         Kids Black Hoody (no zip) – £15

Each hoody comes as either male or female and will have ‘Valley Striders Leeds’ on the back (heat applied) and the same on the chest only smaller and embroidered. The price also includes for your name or initials to be embroidered on the chest so you don’t get it mixed up with other Striders.

Brathay 10 in 10 – from Kate McIntyre

 

Greetings fellow Valley Striders! I've recently been accepted to do the Brathay Windermere Ten in Ten. I.e. to run 10 marathons in 10 consecutive days!!! If you would like to find out a bit more about my journey, do have a look at my blog: http://www.brathaywindermeremarathon.org.uk/blog/kate-mcintyre/2014/11/food-glorious-foodor-how-to-eat-an-extra-5000-calories.aspx  I hope you like it - do share it with other runners if you do. I'll see you at the Abbey Dash on Sunday (it will be the middle section of my 20 mile LSR!!) See you soon. Kate
