5k to 10k Groups

Steel City Striders are committed to helping new and improving runners.  With this in mind we regularly schedule 5k to 10k groups, with the aim of getting runners to a level where they can join our main training nights as detailed below.

For our main training nights we suggest that you should be able to run for an hour and be able to run 10k in 70 minutes or less. The 5k to 10k groups provide an ideal opportunity to improve your running from the level where you can run 5k or for around 30 minutes and increase that up to 10k and beyond in a friendly and supportive group.

At the end of the 8 week course we will support you in giving one of our main training nights a try.

There will be no cost to participate and no obligation to enter races or join the club, but a commitment to the whole programme would be appreciated.

The sessions will be run by experienced Striders who have qualified as Run Leaders with UK Athletics.

For Autumn 2017 we plan to run two groups concurrently starting at the beginning of October:

  • Tuesday 3rd October, 6pm to 7pm and every Tuesday for 8 weeks from Millhouses Park
  • Thursday 5th October, 7pm to 8pm and every Thursday for 8 weeks from Hillsborough Park

Availability will be limited and will be reserved on a first come first served basis.

If you would like to be considered for the 8 week course, please complete the online suitability questionnaire and we will be in touch

If you have any questions about our 5k to 10k courses, please contact the 5k to 10k team via the contact form.
