About Striders

We are a friendly running club open to all abilities of runners aged 9-17 (Juniors) and 18+ (Seniors).  

Senior training meets are on Tuesdays at 7pm, usually starting at Borderville Sports Centre on Ryhall Road. 

However, please do check this website to make sure there are no changes to the meeting venue - these occur occasionally due to football fixtures at Borderville.

Please feel free to join us for a session or two before deciding if you wish to become a member. 

Our members run socially and competitively at all levels, so whatever your speed, come along and run with us. 

The best nights to get to know us are our popular Tuesday sessions where have 5 groups (A to E) led and tailed by UKA qualified Running Leaders. 

Each group has a target pace (ranging from the A Group's 10-minute mile pace to the E Group's 6:15-minute miles).

There are coordinated stops after each mile or so, meaning you can change group during the run.

We also have track and hill sessions on Thursdays from 7pm. As these vary in location, we tend to advertise them on our Facebook page. 

Once a year we put on a free 10-week Beginners Course which takes absolute beginners (adults) from less than a mile up to around 5 miles.  Please visit Beginners Classes under the Running menu to find out more.  

Due to adult-to-child ratios, our Junior section currently has a waiting list.

Stamford Striders is a UK Athletics Affiliated Club - all our documentation covering club policies and practices is available on our Policies & Practices Page under the Governance menu.
