A strong team took part in this event which, like the Heanor Pud Run, wasn’t all flat. Excellent results all round. PBs from Paul Webster (clearly still in his prime then!), Vicki Hutchinson AND Chris Donald – congratulations to both! Full results of the Striders (including chip times) is Read More »

A whole bunch of Striders went to this event as a bit of a social event and seemed (if Facebook is to be believed) to have a generally good time – so the results weren’t important… here they are anyway:
With a very small turn out for this inaugural event, probably due to the Robin Hood 4 Striders made their way around a fantastic course requiring a small amount of navigation/local knowledge. The route causing some people problems no doubt effecting the results but not stopping Gareth Briggs with an...Read More »
The results make it very hard for me to be sure I’ve found all the Striders so I won’t try. Here they are, in all their glory with race positions added and separated into 2 and 5 miles. Well done to everyone who entered.
A field of 27 Striders turned out for this RunDerby event and the field was 858 runners in strength. Smiles seemed to be the order of the day and hopefully a few photos will.turn up soon. The results are: (still provisional)
It was a good night for it and an excellent attendance of 54 runners raising over £150 for charity. Thanks must go to Dave for organising and Brian and Pam once again for their timekeeping skills. Some great times were achieved and when Sam came home after 20k, looking like...Read More »
There seemed to be just 5 club runners at this 8.9km race and I’m assuming that Wayne Stevenson is OUR Wayne Stevenson as he was listed as “unattached”. Some good times though, well done guys.
The Belper Rugby Rover is a race over 30k and a contingent of 15 Striders turned out for this event. Judging by the smiles it appears everyone enjoyed themselves. Marcel managed to find time to pose for...Read More »

On an EXTREMELY warm evening at Weston-on-Trent the 5th round of the series had to be shortened by a quarter mile because of traffic on the approach to The Coopers Arms. Everyone gave it their all and some good times were recorded but they have been adjusted (once again) to...Read More »
With only 9 competitors taking the start then there were easy points to be had but it looked to me like no-one was taking it easy and with so many improvements on the handicaps it reaffirms the impression I got as a spectator/marshal. Well done to EVERYONE.

A great result for the Striders at the Annual Derby Masters Relays on 9th July! In good conditions the 2.5K course made up of 2 laps of the grounds round Moorways was nicely varied between track, tarmac, grass and woodland. We only managed to enter 2...Read More »
Last weekend saw a mass exodus of Striders to the sunny climbs of the Snowdonia National Park for a bit of a run. There seems to be little talk of anything else since they arrived back so it seems they enjoyed themselves.
Six striders made their way up to Cumbria in the horrendous traffic and rain to run the next headbanger Helvellyn & the Dodds fell race, just 15 miles and 4500ft of ascent (nearly half of this in the first 2 miles) over some leg numbing terrain. Certainly not for the...Read More »
It was quite a hot sticky night in Matlock Bath, just right for a brutally hilly but enjoyable race. The tussle by the two in form Striders continues with Rob Donald coming in first by several seconds this time. Not to be...Read More »

A huge well done to Dan Siddons who entered the Stanford Hall 10k race on a windy morning. This course was quite challenging with a tough undulating route but he still managed to finish in a fantastic time of 35 mins 30 seconds finishing in 2nd place overall. Great time...Read More »
Sam Amps went it alone and entered this tough 6 mile fell race at Bamford, just near Ladybower. It involved 1500ft of descent, the first mile being up hill with a sharp steep kick towards the end. Sam completed the race in 56 minutes 30 seconds. Well done!
