Covid 19: Our training sessions returned in a new format on 1st September to comply with Covid-19 restrictions, initially only on Tuesdays. Please see our 'Book-in' page for details of how to take part. Our other club events and races remain suspended, however we continue to organise a range of virtual activities for our members. Please keep checking our regular posts and emails for news of any changes to this situation, which will also be announced here on our website. If you are interested in joining our club, please get in touch.

Welcome to Knaresborough Striders!

Our aim is to bring together people from across Knaresborough and the surrounding area to enjoy the delights of 'striding' - be that walking, jogging or running. The club offers support to those who want to get started, get faster or go for longer!

Knaresborough Striders is an enthusiastic and friendly running club based in the heart of our town. Formed at the beginning of 2012, the club has continued to grow with a current membership currently in excess of 170. Our club welcomes beginners through to the faster runners, with several of our current members having graduated from our recent 'Zero to Hero' courses. Our members take part in a range of events from parkruns through to Marathons, whilst some simply enjoy the training and improvements which our regular club activities offer.

We meet every Tuesday and Thursday at Knaresborough Cricket Club on Aspin Lane, from 7.15pm, striding out at 7.30pm in groups to suit all ages and abilities, with coached training sessions available most Tuesdays. Our wonderful town provides a great range of routes, terrains and scenery which our members regular enjoy as part of our activities. Many of our members take part in local and national events, with our own Club Championship and Time-Trial events providing opportunities for our athletes to test themselves against the clock and measure their improvement.

So if you would like to be a bit fitter, or if you have just started running and want to go further - even race - you are more than welcome to come down and experience the club for a few weeks before joining.
