The Striders Committee has carefully considered the new guidance about coronavirus issued by the Government on Monday 16 March 2020.
It is very clear that the Government wants us all to take “social distancing measures", with immediate effect. The Committee has decided that we must therefore cancel, until further notice, all our training sessions and other events.
We recognise that this will be a source of disappointment to many of you. However, as the largest and most well known running club in Sheffield, we think it is essential that we act responsibly and are seen to do so. We hope, therefore, that you will understand and support our decision.
We will of course keep the situation under review, and will update the website as and when the situation changes.
For the latest information, please follow England Athletics guidance: https://www.englandathletics.org/athletics-and-running/news/coronavirus-statement/
Note: The majority of the calendar items relating to training on the website as well as any Twitter invitations are automated recurring items. So these can be ignored for the time being.
Welcome to Steel City Striders Running Club – for over 35 years we have been the friendliest running club in Sheffield (#thesocialclub) and organisers of the hugely popular Percy Pud 10k race every December for over 25 years
We welcome new members, aged 18+ at any time of the year. Whether you’re a new runner and training for your first race or an experienced runner you are welcome to join us or try any of our training sessions for free under no obligation.
Each and every week we run evening sessions from Hillsborough, Heeley, Graves, Millhouses and Woodburn Road track, plus a daytime session on Tuesday from Millhouses. With all training sessions lead by fully qualified and experienced England Athletics Run Leaders and Coaches.
There will be no pressure or hard sell to join as we want you to be sure we are the right club for you.
Some members within the club like to race and are very competitive, but many come for the social aspect and just enjoy running with company at their own pace. Whatever type of person you are, you are more than welcome and we will support you.
Steel City Striders are fully affiliated on Road, Cross Country, Trail and Fell with members regularly racing both locally and nationally in all disciplines. You will also see us every Saturday morning supporting the Parkrun scene.
As a club we are also very proud to continually support local charities, community projects and good causes. As a club we are also very proud to continually support local charities, community projects and good causes.
