Striders are a
running club based in Croydon, Surrey. We run from our clubhouse
(see map) in Sandilands,
Addiscombe, Croydon on Sundays at 8.30 a.m., Wednesdays at 7.30
and Fridays at 7.00 p.m.
All standards are catered for and everyone will be made most welcome. In order to encourage runners of all abilities, the club has had a long standing policy of frequently 'turning back' to pick up those running at the back of the pack. If you have any doubts about whether you can keep up with the pace, or of dropping off the back and getting lost, fear not, we won't leave you behind!!
On Wednesdays there is the option of running for 40 minutes or an hour in one of 4 groups ranging from fast (7 minute miles) to steady (about 11 minute miles).
On Sundays the choice is usually for 60 or 90 minutes as a single group although we often split into two groups for the longer run.
Friday night is a run of about 40 minutes in one or two groups depending on numbers and pace. We will always allow for very steady runners (12 minute miles).
If you are new to running or returning after a break and canít keep jogging on the flat for 40 minutes at a modest pace there is also a separate beginners group on Wednesday evenings called Be Cool Running.
For more information on the activities of the club and how to join go to the Club Information page.
Please visit us regularly to find out what's happening on the Croydon running scene.
