Sandbach Striders Running Club was formed in 2003. An advertisement in the local paper drew a group interested in running and with a wide range of ability to the car park at Bradwell Village Hall. The group was small but enthusiastic and met each Wednesday to run the lanes of Bradwall.
The first “official meeting” took place at The Military Arms pub in the centre of Sandbach on 1st June 2003. It was here the club was formed, a name chosen and a committee selected. The club was originally named Sandbach Striders and Strollers. It was founded to embrace all those who loved to run. Although “Strollers” was later dropped from the name we welcome all abilities and as a running community seek to nurture, support and encourage all who choose to join us.
No ordinary running club!
In 2003 we made Elworth Cricket Club our base. It served the club well with it's facilities, and hospitality, but as the club grew to over 150 members, in May 2018 we moved to our new, and current home of Sandbach Rugby Club.
In November 2011 we founded the Crewe Déjà vu track marathon, an event which was an instant success and has been voted the most popular track marathon in the country.
But Sandbach Striders is more than a running club: our social scene thrives and friendships continue to be forged.
We extend a warm welcome to all our new members!
