This weekend sees the start of the Mersey Grand Prix Road Race Series.
Penny Lane Striders competes as a club and there are individual prizes up for grabs in each five-year age category from V35 to V65.
The first race is this Sunday’s St Helens 10k and 13 of our runners will be on the start line.
You do not have to compete in all 13 races in the series to be eligible for prizes in the series. You only need to compete in a minimum of 6 of the following races, so don’t worry if you want to be part of the Grand Prix but haven’t entered Sunday’s opening race.
