About Striders

We are a friendly running club open to all abilities of runners aged 9-17 (Juniors) and 18+ (Seniors). We are proud to have people run for us and represent our great town, Stamford! 

Our Tuesday social runs are every Tuesday at 7pm, usually starting at Borderville Sports Centre on Ryhall Road. 
Please do check this website under the Running tab to make sure there are no changes to the meeting venue - these occur occasionally due to football fixtures at Borderville.

Our members run socially and competitively at all levels, so whatever your speed, come along and run with us.  
Feel free to join us for a couple of running sessions before deciding if you wish to become a member. 

The best nights to get to know us are our Tuesday social runs when have 4 groups (AA to D) led and tailed by UKA qualified Running Leaders. 

Each group has a target pace (ranging from the 'AA' Group's pace of about 11-minute miles, through to the 'D' Group's 7-minute mile pace.

There are coordinated stops after each mile or so, meaning you can change up or down a group to adjust your pace 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. Please visit 'Beginners Couch to 5k' under the Running menu to find out more.  

Our Junior section has restricted numbers to keep adult-child ratios high, and sometimes there is a waiting list for places.

Stamford Striders is a UK Athletics Affiliated Club that is Clubmark affiliated. Documentation covering club Policies & Practices is available under the Governance menu.
