Welcome to Desford Striders
Desford Striders Running Club celebrates its 30th anniversary in January 2021, having been founded in 1991.
In the very first club newsletter, the stated aim was “to bring together runners of differing age and experience to form a club that will appeal to marathon runners and complete beginners alike.”
Thirty years later, nothing has changed! Our objective remains the same and we now have over 200 members of all ages and abilities.
We are an England Athletics affiliated running club offering friendly and supportive running.
