Welcome to the Stevenage Striders website!
The Stevenage Striders Running Club (SSRC) is a road running club formed by local runners who were keen to encourage other runners to run and have fun. We know that joining and running with running clubs can sometimes be a little intimidating. At Stevenage Striders we first and foremost want members to enjoy their running. This may lead to running in races, improving race times and furthering your running. However, if that doesn’t fit with a member’s personal running objectives then so be it!! The diversity of runners within the club enriches it and we value all members.
The club training sessions are held at 7:15pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Once a month on a Wednesday we also train at Ridlins track in Stevenage. Details of the sessions are contained within our training diary. We generally meet in the heart of Stevenage in Shephalbury Park, in the car park next to the Shephalbury Football Academy (off of Broadhall Way). The postcode is SG2 8NP.
We also get together on a Sunday morning for a longer (slower) training run. This usually covers a distance of at least 8 miles, with options to run up to 10 – 11 miles. The runs are social, with regular regrouping so that we stay together and support each other. The meeting point and routes for the Sunday runs vary each week and use a combination of road and off road routes in and outside of Stevenage.
