About the Goole Viking StridersThe club was formed in January 1985 by Anne Sweeney and Bob Todd (yes, Sweeney & Todd) as 'Goole Joggers and Runners Club' but soon changed to 'Goole Viking Striders', a name invented by Paul Peacock. The then Chairman John O'Neil, chose the club colours of gold/white/royal blue.A regular magazine was issued in those days called 'Striding Out', quite a task on a typewriter! If anyone wishes to see some of these have a word with Angela Dryden who has kept some of the originals.Today we have about 70 members. There is also a healthy social side which is as much a part of the club as the running itself. We regularly organise evening events at the Rugby Club which normally follow the training runs.The club’s annual Dinner Dance and Prize Giving takes place at the end of the season,(well actually the start) at the end of January each year.
