Welcome back to The Strider, the newsletter for St Helens Striders This month we bring you a variety of race reports as members star t to up t heir training in preparation for more races over the Spring and Summer. Included this month are reports from Parbold Hill Race, Wrexham Village Bakery Half M a ra t h o n , Tr i m p e l l 2 0 m i l e Grindleford Gallop and the GPW Legal Services St Helens 10k in support of the Steve Prescott Foundation. Also this month we are bringing back our “Meet the Strider” feature, particularly useful given how much the club has grown over the past few months – since the beginning of the year we have grown to almost 50 members.
This month we are giving you the opportunity to get to know one of our newer members. We are also providing a new running route idea, to help alleviate any boredom that may result from sticking to the tried and tested, as well as an explanation about some of training sessions – aimed at helping some of our newer members to understand what the short-hand descriptions are in the training plan and what the common landmarks are.
F i n a l l y, t h e r e a r e a f ew reminders on races that are coming up over the next few weeks and months. And just to have the last word, please check out The Striders Message Board on the website www.sthelensstriders.co.uk and the St Helens Striders Facebook page. Striders are always posting about races, plans for weekend runs and social events as well as general advice. It’s a great way to get involved with the Striders.
