The St Albans Striders membership year runs from April to March each year, concurrent with the England Athletics membership year.
The cost for club membership for the full year or any part of it is £27. If you have volunteered at a Striders event between 1 April 2017 and 31 March 2018 then you are eligible for volunteer membership at the discounted rate of £17.
Our second Chiltern League XC fixture will be soon upon us, this time at Teardrop Lakes, Milton Keynes.
If you would like to run in this event please complete the booking form below including your Date of Birth and EA Membership Number which is required as part of your application.
If you took part in our first fixture at Oxford or have already requested a race number then you won't need to complete this as you'll already have a race number assigned to you! Feel free to drop us an email if you want to check this.
Race Start Times
1.25pm - Senior Women (Approx. 5.6km)
2.10pm - Senior Men (Approx. 9km)
Numbers are handed out by the captains before the race, so please arrive in plenty of time to warm up and collect your number. You should also keep hold of this number for all Chiltern League races during the season as there is a £3 charge to replace these.
The nearest postcode is MK5 8PA this will bring you within sight of the “Car Park” signs. Do NOT park at the main entrance to The Bowl as this is closed early on Saturdays. The walk from the car park to the course is about 5 minutes and to the start/finish area a further 5 minutes. Do NOT use the postcode for “The National Bowl”, do NOT use the “Car Auctions Parking."
There are hundreds of free spaces at the Car Park and it is a very short walk to the course, which does not involve crossing any roads. An alternative may be to travel by train to MK Central Station as it is only a 10 minute walk from the station again with no roads to cross.
There will be a marquee available for changing in case of bad weather, and there will also be portable toilets adjacent to the start/finish areas.
Full race day details can be found at the following link which contains all race times, parking information and directions - http://www.chilternccl.co.uk/18cl2mkbowl.htm
We look forward to seeing you there!
