Saltaire Striders is a small, friendly running club. The club organises a number of runs throughout the week (see the Meets page for details and maps) and caters for adult athletes of any age from 18 to 85 and of any ability from complete beginner to serious athlete (sorry we do not allow accompanying dogs).
All abilities are catered for and we pride ourselves on looking after newcomers – nobody gets left behind.
New members are welcome to come and try us for free for a few weeks before they need to pay any subscriptions.
Training sessions are varied with runs between 3 and 8 miles in distance – on the road during the winter months and mainly off road through the local woods and moors when light permits. Speed and hill sessions are also incorporated in the training program devised by the UK Athletics qualified male and female club coaches/run in England leaders. The coaches are always willing to discuss and assist you with any training matters and will be happy to devise individual training plans to meet specific needs/goals.
Members of the club compete in races on the roads, fells and cross country.
Socially the club organises quiz nights, ladies and men’s socials, trips to races, etc.
Membership details are available here.
