Hurricane Striders celebrate England Athletics affiliation

Hurricane Striders celebrate England Athletics affiliation

The Hurricane Striders marked their launch and affiliation to England Athletics with a special treasure hunt event over Easter.

The newly affiliated club - who are also a RunTogether group - celebrated their pride in joining the England Athletics family by doing an orienteering style run to spell out the word 'Affiliated'.

Runners were provided with a map and a pencil, and ran everyhere to find letters on lampposts.  The run was done for both their Lincoln running groups that are held on separate nights.  Leaders were on bikes one night and running the next night .

Group Leader and Run Leader Kate Siviter told us, "It resulted in lots of fun and we’ve had great feedback from the members this week."
