England Athletics (EA) have recently issued guidelines and advice to the whole running community on how to stay active at home in these difficult and uncertain times. Reading is highly recommended

Links to the relevant web pages will be found on the  “Useful Links” tab which has been added under “Info” on the navigation bar.  In the first instance, links to England Athletics (EA) and Hampshire Road Race League (HRRL) have been added.  More will follow in due course.



Denmead Striders Virtual Awards Night

The Virtual Awards night will be hosted on Zoom and this will be recorded as well for anyone that is unable to join us live. The recording will be posted to Facebook and a link put on the club website taking you to YouTube to view.
Some basic instructions to those of you not familiar with Zoom are as follows:
To use Zoom you will need a device with a webcam.  A Laptop works better (or a desktop with a wide screen) as you will be able to see more people on the screen but can also be used on a tablet/phone (again as long as you have a camera).There is an app available to download if you use this way.
A meeting ID will be provided and a password to enter may also be required. To join you
need to go to www.zoom.us.
Full details of the meeting including access information may be downloaded by clicking on this Awards Night Instructions.


Your Ideas Please!

If anyone has any ideas, thoughts on items we can do, share, encourage in this challenging time then the committee would welcome ideas. Please contact the committee with any thoughts – contact details can be found on our club contacts page

A note has been added from your Head Coach, Gary, giving valuable advice on pacing yourself during repetition training sessions.
Please view by clicking  Coach Stop next to “Introduction to Summer Training” button.

Summer Training Schedule

Summer training around the lanes of Denmead was scheduled to start this Wednesday but, sadly, world events have prevented this from happening this year. However, our Head Coach, Gary has produced the Summer Training Schedule for the benefit of those of you who still wish to follow the schedule for your own personal training at a social distance. Thank you Gary.  Details can be viewed under “Training” on the navigation bar.
