About us

Sandbach Striders was born back in 2003. Since the early days, membership has grown with a firm ethos of the club being not just about running but social activities as well. The club is affiliated to UK AAA and has its own qualified coaches. Many other special events take place on various nights too.

The club meets on Wednesdays at 18:30 and Sundays at 09:00 at Elworth Cricket Club.

Race Report: Hanley Parkrun 22/10/2011

Hanley Park Run:  9am Saturday 22nd October

I decided to enter late on the Friday evening but still managed to get my barcode printed off OK. 

Hanley Parkrun course - two and a bit laps.
The park was easy to find (just off the A500) and there were two small car parks in the park, one near the start and one near the finish line.  Toilets were located near the finish line.

Everyone was friendly and there was a mix of running abilities.  A group of guys from Leeds had travelled down on the train and there was one man from Whalley Bridge running as well.  A few of them had ‘100 park run’ tee shirts and they commented on park runs from all around the country….

The course itself was a little hilly but not too bad (even for me); I think my biggest challenge was avoiding the geese that decided to cross the path in front of me!

After the race a few of us went to Flavours cafe (a short walk away) where you could get a decent cup of coffee and food.

I will definitely do it again.
