“Striders is such an incredible inclusive club. A super speedy Dameo finished his race at this Brighton 10k and came back and pushed me to get my 10km PB. Doesn’t matter your ability, everyone is there supporting everyone.”

What being a Strider means to me…

“It’s so much more than just running. After moving away from friends and family down to the coast, I can honestly say I have made lifelong friends through the club. It is such a welcoming community no matter what the ability, and along with the running there is also a huge social element. Everyone is so motivating, whether you’re a seasoned runner, want to keep fit, or just fancy a natter on a Wednesday night, everyone always has your back!”

What being a Strider means to me…

I’d  wanted to join the Striders running club for sometime but was always a bit nervous to take the plunge but I quickly realised that there was nothing to worry about. My first time was at a track night, I still hadn’t joined but was encouraged to come along by my cousin Julie, i was put at ease straight away with the warm welcome, the great instruction and encouragement and the realisation that it was an easy going club with members of all abilities and paces, I joined that evening and haven’t looked back. For me, Wednesday night Striders is always something to look forward to, if I’ve had a stressful week  I know that I can just turn up, have a chat, be in the group and not have to think about anything for a hour or so,  Just have fun and run.

What being a Strider means to me…

“This photo was taken during the inaugural Beachy Head Half Marathon. The fact that I would even consider taking part in such an event is totally down all the support I have had from Seaford Striders. I only started running four years ago on Seaford Striders C25k. I’ve met so many wonderful, encouraging and supportive people through Striders and although I will never be a fast runner I love being part of the Striders family. I feel honoured to be able to help others on their running journey and love being able to give something back to our wonderful Club which has given me so much.”

What being a Strider means to me…

“This photo reminds me of what Striders is all about. The photo is of me back home after completing the Virtual London Marathon 2020, my phone died at the end of the run so was unable to take any when I actually finished. This run encapsulates everything that Striders is all about to me – teamwork and camaraderie. Even though the weather was atrocious other members of Striders still came out to meet me at various points along my route to run with me and keep me company. With the gale force winds and driving rain up on top of the Downs I still managed to enjoy the run, which if I had done it on my own I probably would have given up half way round!

What being a Strider means to me…

“Being part of Seaford Striders is more than just a weekly running commitment. It’s a commitment to new friends, new hobbies, new routes and a whole lot more. I’ve been running with striders since 2018, after completing their couch to 5K programme. I’ve now completed so many distance races up to a Marathon, which is something beyond what I ever thought I was capable of. If I can do it, you can too!”

What being a Strider means to me…

“Hi, I’m Darren and I love running for fitness and improved mental health.

I joined Striders last year and have completed my UK Athletics LiRF qualification. I am doing my CiRF qualification this year to be able to coach Endurance running. I also completed the UKA Safeguarding course which means I was able to become the new Club Welfare Officer, which I am really proud of. My view is that we should treat people how we would like to be treated ourselves and I really want to support the great culture that Seaford Striders have.
I have been blown away by the amazing support and friendly attitude within the club and I would love to hear any ideas and suggestions on what more we can do to make this the most welcoming club in the area. I love distance running and will be helping out with Junior striders on Tuesday evenings.
I hope to meet you all soon.”

What being a Strider means to me…

I always saw the striders at races and stomping around Seaford, thinking I would love to be a part of that, however always felt that it would be too professional for the likes of me. How wrong was I!! Ive never looked back and have never felt more welcomed and as comfortable as I do when I’m with the team. Always friendly and fun with so much comradery, I love it! 

My running ability and knowledge has improved leaps and bounds but more importantly my mind is clear and waistline in check!

What being a Strider means to me…

“Being a Strider for me allows me to meet likeminded people from other walks of life I wouldn’t normally get to meet. It’s also brings massive support when racing, with every Strider around the courses cheering each other on. “

What being a Strider means to me…

“This pic was taken by Nick at mile 10/11 of my first ever marathon (Which was Brighton).

I needed those cheers of encouragement which carried me on until I saw another friend at mile 16.

The support striders give each other is the reason I run, I always see at least one other strider when I am out running or hear a beep and cheer as they drive pass. It pushes me on and makes me thankful that I have that in my life.

I have gained friends and work from being at the club and look forward to committing more time to the club now I work in Seaford (I often missed club runs due to traffic jams from Brighton).

I feel a part of something with Striders. Thank you all x “

Why Join a Running Club?

There are many benefits to joining a running club here just a few reasons:

Meet like-minded people

Make lots of friends with people you already have running in common with and you can talk with people who understand your running interest/obsession! (blistered feet and all!)

Improve your running

You will always find someone who can run a little faster than you to be able to chase after. Organised sessions with interval training are designed to push you a little bit each week.

Support & Motivation

You will not only have your own personal bunch of cheerleaders but those days when you lack motivation become alot easier when there are others going out and getting it done and encouraging you. Just knowing other people will be there can make all the difference in lacing up your shoes and getting out that door!

"The obsession with running is really an obsession with the potential for more and more life."
