Obviously, this is not an exhaustive list of the roles that people perform within the club – there are many many more who do very important things to support the progression of the club, but it would be impossible to name them all individually, so to everyone else I would like to issue a blanket thank-you for all your hard work.
Tuesday training moves back to MV16 on 28th March (meet in the car park for 6:15 start).
Thursday training moves back to the Country Park on 30th March (meet in car park at Wymondham Way Visitor Centre for 6:00 start).

2017.3.5 Striders Newsletter
With apologies for the short notice, we have had to cancel tonight’s junior training due to circumstances beyond our control.
For members of LRRL clubs only.
Entries for the Stilton 7, Race 2 in the 2017 LRRL Winter League will open at 8pm on Sunday 12th February (and close around a week later, if the race limit is not reached before then). There will be no entries on the day.
Full details and a direct link to the entry page have been sent to LRRL delegates who should be sharing them with each club’s members shortly.
Entry is restricted to LRRL member clubs only, anyone entering who is not a member of these clubs will not have a number issued and will not be insured to run. LRRL operate a no refund policy in these circumstances.
The delay in making this announcement has been caused by efforts being made to expand the available facilities in order to allow more runners and this has now been achieved. This means that we have have a licence for 500 runners (which is more than we have ever had enter). In order to achieve this we have secured extra space outside the venue for club tents (which will include priority parking for one car per club, carrying the tent) and also a larger area for car parking. We will need to encourage as much car sharing as possible, so will send out more information on this as the race approaches.
We would be grateful if all clubs could stress, particularly when sharing on social media, that this is a closed race and entry is only open to members of LRRL clubs.
From now on, all our kit is now available exclusively from Melton Sports – open 6 days a week in the centre of Melton Mowbray.
Race kit – Vest £20, T-shirt £20
Other kit – Hi viz “Night Strider” t-shirt £15, Long sleeve shirt £25, Jacket £35, Hoodie £20
