Valley Striders moving to Far Moss

Steph Gledhill sent an email to all VSAC members on 23 December entitled "New Horizons" and saying that we are moving our base from Leos to Far Moss with effect from 1 January.

A few people have reported not having received it.  If you haven't received it, you may find it in your junk folder.  But to save searching, there is a copy on the website

Junior 1 mile race and Club Handicap 5 mile race on Monday 2 January

- Meeting point is the lodge at the bottom of Goodrick Lane LS17 7RW.  Note that Goodrick Lane is a private road, please park on Alwoodley Lane or one of the side roads nearby.

- Junior 1 mile meet 10am, there will be two races, school years 1 to 5 and school years 6 to 11.  Parents may run with their children in the first race.  In the second race, depending on numbers of children, we may allow parents to race "against" their children!   These races are open to juniors on the waiting list and also to friends of members.  And are free to enter.

- We need a marshal at the turn-round point of the 1 mile race and a few marshals along the route, if you can help, please email juniors@valleystriders.org.uk .

- Club handicap 5 miles meet 10:30am to find your start time.  If you've no race performances recorded in the results database, you will be asked for your fastest recent 5k or 10k time and the "marksman" will give you a start time.  Slowest runners will start first, fastest runners last.  The Handicap Cup will be awarded to the first runner across the line who has a performance in the database.

- We need a few marshals for the 5 mile race, if you can help please email Sue Sunderland rickandsue1@sky.com .

- Afterwards, food at Far Moss, as mentioned in the "New Horizons" email.  We have 76 orders so far, but have booked a few spares for those that missed the email, so if you want to come, please email steph@valleystriders.org.uk with your order.
