As mentioned before we are looking for volunteers to shadow the current committee with the view to take over. Please speak to Nick Griffiths with what potential roles there will be if you are interested. Without these volunteers unfortunately the race cannot continue.
A big thank you to Rachael Harrison who will now be taking over the collation of results from Clare and a big thank you to Clare who has been keeping all the Striders’ results sheets up to date over the past months among her many other club duties. If anyone runs any races please let Rachael know and she can add to the results sheet for the week. This is particularly important for races outside the immediate local area of which Rachael is unlikely to be aware! The “Fastest Times” for individuals will continue to be published and you may or may not be aware of the “Power of 10” site:
Here, once you are are EA Registered, you will be able to look up your races and it details your PBs for every distance. Simply put in your surname and club and it will come up. Most races get logged on here although, unfortunately, not all e.g. those races organised by “Believe & Achieve which include the Portsmouth Coastal Marathon and Half Marathon.
It has been noticed that the chatter whilst the coaches are trying to explain the sessions has started to creep back in. We are having fairly large numbers at training on a Monday & Wednesday and whilst you may think you know the session there are a lot of people that don’t. Please respect the coaches and leave your catch up until the session starts if you wish.
It has been a few years now since we have had a good old club photo and things have changed quite a bit since the last one. We will arrange this on a club night and encourage everyone to come in the Striders vests (or maybe just red if you don’t have one). I will give advanced warning on what date this will be and hopefully do it on a sunny day!
For those that may not have heard, I am very pleased to announce that Denmead Striders are officially SCCL champions for the 2022-23 season!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank every one of you that ran, volunteered or supported the team throughout the winter months to make this possible, you are all awesome!
Well done everyone, you should all be very proud.
For a small club we pack a pretty big punch!
I’ve had the provisional results from the Alice Holt XC, and they are very good !
Both the men & women finished 2nd, which means we finished 1st overall.
By my calculations that puts us top of the league, but by only one point.
I genuinely believe that with a strong team on Sunday we could go and win the league for the first time since 2003!
It’s a new course around the Holywell Estater, Swanmore, nice and local, so it would be great to get our biggest team this year and show everyone what “little old” Denmead Striders are all about.
