A recent addition to the Striders race calendar to celebrate the memory of former Strider (and Rotherham Harrier) Stan Bagshaw, who sadly passed away in 2009.  The predominantly off-road, undulating race, starts and finishes at Elsecar Heritage Centre taking in the surrounding woods and fields of Wentworth that were so loved by Stan.  The 1 lap, approx. 4 mile route, has altered slightly from the first running of the race in 2010 but still involves a challenging climb from Kings Wood up towards Needle's Eye in Wentworth with an eventual lengthy descent through fields back into Elsecar to round things off.


It's not so much a race as a get together to remember Stan who was still pulling on the Striders vest to compete well into his 70's.  As an acknowledgement to Stan, every runner receives a bag of toffees at the finish - for those that remember, Stan always had a toffee available to offer a flagging runner come the finish line of a race.



Normally held in August, race day details on the clubs facebook page


All proceeds from the race go to a chosen charity.
