Club Training Sessions and Competitions During Covid-19

Updated 06.01.2021


With England in full lockdown for a third time, this page outlines what the Stragglers are currently offering and how the club can support you our members to stay active.

Current guidelines permit you to exercise with one other person outdoors (either from your household or another). We are not permitted to travel outside of our local area to do this. All face-to-face activity is suspended, however virtual competitions can continue. England Athletics have updated their guidance and we advise all members to read it here.

 How to continue training

We encourage you to meet with one other runner as we believe social interaction is extremely important at this time. Our mens and ladies teams have whatsap groups, if you are not currently in either please email for men or for ladies. If you are stuck for someone to meet and run with Simon and Helene can support you as can club captain Phil Davies

Please continue to support one another where possible.

Winter Grand Prix

With virtual competitions able to continue we can confirm five new events have been added to the Winter Grand Prix. Find details here.

Stragglers Ladder

We have started a new ladder for 2021 ladder. We have added new distances so you can now post times for 1 mile, 5k, 5 miles, 10k, 10 miles and half-marathon. Please ENTER YOUR TIME HERE. You can see the final ladder and the winners for 2020 on the homepage or the results page.


Fly 5k

This is a virtual 5k event that The Stragglers have been invited to take part in and which we are delighted to publicise. It's at a specific time (8-12 on Saturday morning). In order to publish results quickly, the window for submitting times is 8am to 1pm on Saturdays. Read more about it here.

Runners can submit times from other events or 5k sections from longer runs too, so it fits in with anything else that you are doing. The results are categorised by Gender, Age Groups, Age Grades and all the stats that we know and love. There is also an inter-club competition. 

You submit times via the Fly 5k website, just click on "Submit Time" on the top menu.  When times are entered, there is a field for member number. Anyone who joins their Facebook group is assigned a member number, and an updated list of everyone's member numbers is published every Friday evening in the Facebook group. If you are not in the Facebook group, the first time you submit a time, leave it blank and use the website contact form to ask for your member number which will have been assigned with your first entry.
