Welcome To Striders Of Croydon


FOLLOWING ON FROM THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC WE ARE DELIGHTED TO BE BACK RUNNING AS A CLUB! Things do look a little different to pre-Corona & guidelines from England Athletics are constantly changing as restrictions are eased. Members, please keep an eye on your emails for all the latest information. For more info.

We are a running club based in Croydon, Surrey. We run from our clubhouse in Sandilands, Addiscombe, on Sundays at 8.30 am and Wednesdays at 7.30 pm*. There is also speed training on Tuesday evenings.

(*please note that due to restrictions following on from Coronavirus our regular runs look slightly different to usual. Please see this post for full details).

We are based at the Sandilands clubhouse next to Lloyd Park. Click on How To Find Us for a map.

Wednesday evenings are our main Club Run and all standards are catered for – everyone will be made most welcome.  In order to encourage runners of all abilities, the club has had a long-standing policy of frequently ‘turning back’ to pick up those running at the back of the pack. If you have any doubts about whether you can keep up with the pace, or of dropping off the back and getting lost, fear not, we won’t leave you behind!!

There is also a longer run option available on Sunday mornings of 60 or 90 minutes. There are usually only two pace groups on Sunday mornings, but sometimes there will be a third, steadier group available (run leaders permitting) so keep an eye on your emails for more details on this!

For more information on the runs and other activities of the club and how to join click on “The Club” and “Join Us” buttons above.

If you have any questions email

If you can’t yet jog for about 40 mins without stopping you may be interested that there is a further running group separate from Striders of Croydon that meets at Lloyd Park café on Tuesday’s at 7:30pm. If you would like to join this contact Beatrice Schaer directly at . You can also find information on Facebook under
