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 5 miles in around 75 minutes. 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 an hour 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 8 week programme would be appreciated.

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

For spring 2019 we plan to run two groups concurrently starting at the beginning of March:

  • Tuesday 19th March 6pm to 7pm for 8 weeks from Millhouses Park
  • Thursday 21st March, 7pm to 8pm for 8 weeks from Hillsborough Park

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