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.
Whilst many members compete in races from 5k to Marathons, the emphasis remains purely on keeping people motivated and having fun. Why not scan through our race reports to see what we’ve been up to? Having read them, you’re sure to see why Sandbach Striders has developed the motto of being
"No Ordinary Running Club!"

The results are brought to you thanks to the kind generosity of HS Sports, one of the world leaders in supplying timing and scoring equipment and without whose fantastic support we would not be able to chip time the Crewe Déjà vu.

Sorry if you have been left disappointed but we have done our very best to accommodate every entrant within the confinements of the 50 person race limit.
The 2012 race sold out in record time this year - nearly 4 months ago in fact.
To all you lucky Déjà vu 2-ers the race pack will arrive by email imminently (and be posted on here for good measure) and we look forward to seeing you all on Sunday!

Once more we were blessed with terrific running weather, although the heavy rain of the past few weeks ensured some sections of the course had a little bit more mud than usual.

I thought at the time they were mad but where do I find myself today, on the start line
of the 28th Médoc marathon with eight other Striders all in fancy dress costumes.

Since the 8th April when our club mate and friend John Lawton went missing during a mountain marathon in Greece, hundreds of people have spent thousands of hours searching for him.
Hundreds more people have donated time and money to the search effort and today it is with great sadness mixed with relief that those efforts have succeeded and his body has been found.
Our thoughts are now with his wife, children and grandchildren as they come to terms with the news.
We will continue to miss you John and you will forever be a part of this club.
Rest in Peace John Lawton 1949 - 2012
