Information for potential members

Whilst Desford Striders are currently unable to operate totally as we would like to due to the continuing Coronavirus restrictions in place, we are following the Government and English Athletics guidance closely and are moving back towards life as normal.

We are currently organising a range of 'quality' training sessions with limited numbers of runners and club runs, open to a maximum of 30 people. Please note that sessions start from different locations.

Sessions are normally only available to members of the club but, if you're interested in joining, you can attend up to 2 sessions free of charge on a trial basis.

All Striders sessions can be booked using the MotivMeet app - click here to download it for free or visit the App Store on your phone. You will need to set up your own profile and select 'Desford Striders' as your club to be able to view and book onto sessions.

Please speak to the Run Leader on arrival to make them aware you are a potential new member and have joined the group on a trial basis.

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.
