Welcome to St Helens Striders!
We meet every Monday and Wednesday evening at Ruskin Drive Sports Centre in St Helens at 7pm.
Our structured monthly training plans, amazing volunteers and multiple different training groups mean we can cater for a variety of abilities and preferences.
England Athletics Coaches and Leaders
We're lucky to have 5 England Athletics qualified Coaches creating our training plans and providing guidance and support to our runners.
All of our sessions are delivered by one of our Coaches or a qualified Run Leaders, ensuring your training is safe, effective and fun.
Competitions, Races and Events
Every year we organise a variety of competitions and events to give you something to work towards with your new running team.
Our handicap races gives everyone an equal chance of winning, our grand-prix competition rewards consistent race performances across the year and our annual awards recognise those that have improved the most.
We do more than just run together. Our Social Committee make sure there's always something in the diary to look forward to. We travel to different parkruns each month, enjoy post-run breakfasts, scoff ice-cream together after our summer 5 mile trail event, go out for curry nights and have an absolute ball at our Christmas Party.
We've also got an extremely active online community with training, social and buy/swap Facebook pages, just for members.
