About Striders

We are a friendly, active running club open to all abilities of runners aged 9-17 (Juniors) and 18+ (Seniors).  
Adult training meets are on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm. 
We usually meet at Borderville Sports Centre on Ryhall Road. However, please do check our Facebook page and this website to make sure there are no changes to the meeting venue - these do 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. Due to adult-to-child ratios, our Junior section currently has a waiting list.
Our members run both socially and competitively, in all disciplines, and at all levels. So, whatever your standard, come along and run with us, there will always be someone to run with you.
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) with coordinated stops so that you can change group during the run.
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.  Many beginners chose to join the club at the end, but this is entirely up to the individual. Our next Beginners Course starts on Tuesday in early May 2019 at Borderville Sports Centre. 

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.
