Awards from 1987 to date

 

Over the 30 years that the Striders have been in existence there have arisen a number of awards  for members who have contributed to the club in various ways.  Not all of these are necessarily for athletic prowess !  These are presented during the Striders awards night, usually held in January, along with a cheque for the money raised by the Mince Pie 10 for our chosen charity.  One thing that is certain is a good time is had by all !!

The various awards are summarised below.  The winners of the various awards over the years can be found here  :-
