Membership Information


Information for potential members

Whilst Desford Striders are currently unable to operate as normal due to the Coronavirus restrictions in place, we are following the Government and English Athletics guidance closely.

We are currently organising 'bubble runs' with strictly limited numbers of runners. These are normally only available to members of the club but, if you're interested in joining, please contact us and we will try to allow you to take part on a trial basis if numbers allow.

Desford Striders caters for runners of all abilities and we fulfil the needs of both serious and competitive runners and fun or social runners. We also hold regular social events for our members, friends and families. 

Once Covid-19 restrictions have lifted and normal club activities resume, you are welcome to come along to any of our sessions to give us a try before you join.

If you're interested in joining us and want more info use the contact form below or send us an email.
