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!"

Race Report: Flying Fox 10m 04/11/2012

On  Sunday as I drove to Standon for the start of my 10 mile race, I was extremely pleased with myself because I remembered the way and for a change did not get lost.  

There was also a very nice 4x4 in front of me and the driver looked like a runner.

Crewe Déjà vu 2 Results!

A big congratulations to all finishers of the second Crewe Déjà vu 2 track marathon!

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.
