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.

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!"

*FREE* Couch to 5k sessions starting 4th February 2015!

Sandbach Striders running club are pleased to announce the return of their popular *free* Couch-to-5k programme.

Starting on Wednesday 4th February and running for ten weeks you will be taken through an established programme which aims to take you to your target of running 5k (or 3.1 miles.)

Whether you are a non-runner or returning to running after a break and no matter what your current level of fitness is, you'll be made welcome and encouraged every step of the way.

You will get the opportunity to meet some of last year's Couch to 5k graduates who are now regular runners and have achieved things in the past year that they never dreamed possible.
