Race Results from Sunday 24th April


Congratulations to the four Striders who all ran marathons in great times last Sunday.  Linda Taylor ran the Shakespeare marathon while Martin Parfitt, Jeffrey Streeter (achieved a PB) and Stuart Hoare  completed the Southampton  event. Equally commendable are Jenny Parks who ran the Southampton Half Marathon Gary McCawley and Anita Crawley who tackled the undulating  Angmering 10 mile Bluebell Trail Run and Nick Bailey for completing the 10k at the same venue.

Membership Renewals 2022


It is that time of year, folks, when membership subscriptions are due. and Julia will be delighted to receive your remittances as soon as possible.

The membership fee remains unchanged this year at £26 of which £16 goes straight to England Athletics. The remaining £10 for club membership, unchanged for many years, represents a real bargain when you consider the benefits of belonging to our amazing club:

  •     Two structured training sessions each week led by our EA qualified coaches
  •      Free social events – e.g. Christmas party, summer barbecue etc
  •      Regular discounts from Sportshoes.com
  •      Free entry to club competitions – Summer Handicap, Striders’ League, Winter         Time Trials
  •      Free transport to annual Ryde 10m in February.

In addition, registration as an EA athlete gives you a £2 discount off every race you enter, so the EA fee pays for itself if you compete in just eight races annually.

Please follow the link membership payment for details of  how to submit your subscription.  Payment by BACS if possible but cheque or cash is fine – post or pass to Julia on club night (Wednesdays)

Thank you.



Well done D10k and XC Teams!!

WOW,  Today I’m overwhelmed by the strength of such a small but mighty club!  Not only did we put on a successful Denmead 10k Race with a completely new race Committee but we also fielded a strong cross-country team.   For me this gives me strength and depth in our team.  Your commitment and dedication in everything you guys do makes me very proud to be a Strider. Thank you! 

It makes my job as Chair (whatever I am) very pleasurable
