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!"

It wasn’t a race that I had planned to do but I was told that it was a flat course and I didn’t want to do another hill after (the ‘sting in the tail’) Congleton half.

Having booked myself in for the new Wirral half marathon on 13th October, I wasn’t expecting to do one the week before. However, Gordon decided that when both Heather and Tony were unable to do the trail run, he volunteered us both for it, insisting that it would be easy…it was all down-hill!

I arrived at the Lowry Outlet Mall with plenty of time to park and get to the start line, but shortly after lining up they announced there was a delay – couldn’t quite hear what….
