Here is a list of some of the things you can do with Sydney Striders Juniors this 2013 winter season.
Striders ‘in house’ events are in green – they are only for Striders members. To join Striders go to www.sydneystriders.org.au. Family memberships are also available. For full information on the 10Ks go to www.sydneystriders.org.au/10K/
Athletics New South Wales (ANSW) events are in blue. You need to be a Striders member AND registered with ANSW. We would like you to do as many of these as possible! If you have been doing little athletics, you can register for free as a dual athlete. Otherwise, junior or senior, just register at the ANSW website and then phone ANSW on 9746 1122 to chivvy them along if you don’t get your cloth numbers within a few days. You can claim this registration money back at the end of the season if you run at least 3 races for Striders. Let us know when you have your cloth numbers please!
