Linked below are a selection of recent articles from the Melton Times focussing on our runners – congratulations to all:
Summer outrun season is upon us..! First outrun is on Wednesday 1st May from The Grange (Asfordby Hill) so please do come along for a run and stay for a drink and bite to eat if you can. For details of all this year’s runs and more information on what they are all about, see the summer outrun page.
Following the recent AGM, this year’s membership form, the safeguarding policy and (shortly) the updated constitution are available via the Club documents page.
Please see below for the latest newsletter – including history of the Striders, LRRL recap, a look forward to the summer outruns, and more!
Thanks to Michael, Emma, Katie, Chris and Andy for pulling this together.
As mentioned at this week’s Wednesday club run, if anyone needs a little incentive to chase race times over the coming months then do check out our club standards page.
This has full details of how it all works, including those all important time goals…

** Local runner Andrew Wrath will be running 10K at each of a number of
different locations across Europe on Friday, April 5, showing how easy it is to
traffic people across borders. He will be finishing in his home town of Melton
Mowbray. Melton Running Club-MRC and Stilton Striders will be co-hosting a
10K run with Andrew when he arrives by train approx. 21:30pm in Melton and
we’d like your support for this serious but special occasion. Melton Sports is
putting a pair of AfterShokz Trekz Air open ear headphones and a goodie bag
(worth over £150) up for grabs to boost the fundraising total on the night.

One point of feedback from last year’s event, in common with many others, was that participants struggled to hear the race briefing at the start. A loudhailer will again be used this year, but to give everyone the best chance of receiving key messages, below is a link to the briefing:
