Here's some extra motivation for our speedier members looking to improve their time at this year's St Albans Half – prize money!
The organisers have announced there will be £300 on offer to the fastest men's and women's teams when the race takes place on Sunday, 12 June.

To be eligible for the prize money, you must select that you are running for team St Albans Striders when you enter the race at www.stalbanshalfmarathon.co.uk (if you have already registered and didn't join the running club team, please call the St Albans Half organisers on 01727 819327 so they can add you to it).
The following rules apply to the competition:
- Finishing positions for the first three men and women from each club will be added. The team with the lowest score will win.
- Runners are still eligible to score in prize categories as well as the Running Club prizes
- Must be a UKA Affiliated member
- Must be registered under your Running Club Team
- Must be aged 17+
As this is a race on home turf, and an event where historically we have scooped the team and individual prizes, we should be in with a good chance of winning!
Last year the men's team were victorious thanks to Blake Vivian (1:75:17), Pablo Plaza Lastras (1:26.30) and Craig Bowie (1:28.26).
So if you want to try and help us beat other running clubs to the prize money, sign up now!

If you can't run, then do come along on the day and cheer on our runners of all paces as support from the crowd can make all the difference when the going gets tough.
Entries are also still open for the other races on the day including the walking half marathon, wheelchair marathon, 5k and 1.5 mile children's fun run.
