On Wednesday night (17/10) we invite you to join us for our 3K time trial to raise some money for Men Against Cancer. Stuart Thompson from Ward Park Runners is currently running 11 races in 9 weeks and we would like to support him. If you would like to join us there will be a bucket at the start for a collection, suggested min donation ยฃ2. Everyone welcome. Feel free to tag anyone you think may be interested. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿƒ
Good Afternoon Striders! I hope you all have had a good weekend and are enjoying the sunshine today after yesterdayโ€™s washout! Tomorrow nightโ€™s session is 1 minute repeats. This session will build stamina and help make you an overall stronger runner. After our warm up, the main session will consist of 1 minute on running at 80% of your maximum output with 1 minute recovery running at around 50% of your maximum. We alternate this for 10 minutes and then have a 2 minute brisk walk in between, we will repeat this 3 times and finish off with a cool down. I look forward to seeing you all at the pavilion at Londonderry Park at 7.15pm.


A further reminder that at Wednesday nightโ€™s time trial there will be a charity collection for the Men Against Cancer Charity. Stuart Thompson from WPR will be joining us for the time trial as he is currently running 11 races in 9 weeks to raise awareness for this Menโ€™s Cancer charity as members of his family and friends have recently been affected by the disease. There will be a bucket at the start if you could throw some change into it in support, it would be most appreciated.
