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!"

Congratulations to our Fantastic Couch-to-5k Graduates!

We'd like to congratulate the fantastic members of our most recent couch-to-5k programme who have now completed their first 5k run at Congleton parkrun..

In just ten weeks the runners have worked their way from beginners to seasoned distance runners!

Well done!

The Couch-to-5k programme, developed by the NHS is a fantastic wy to improve yoru fitness and well-being. It guides you every step of the way to running a full 5 kilometres (or 3.11 miles) without stopping.

Sandbach Striders have been an advocate of this scheme for the past few years and have run an annual programme to encourage residents of South Cheshire to make running part of their healthy lifestyle.
