Time Trials and Training

Time Trials:

Sedgefield Striders meet on Wednesday evenings for 5km time trials and fun walk/ run at the Sedgefield Bowling Club. Starting times vary according to the season. Beginners are assisted with a training program that allows them to start with shorter distances.

Summer: Runners and Walkers 17:30 (October to May)

Winter: Runners and Walkers 17:30 (June to September)

Social training:

Runners and walkers meet on Saturday mornings for less formal training (meeting venues and routes are confirmed by the Walking and Running Captains on the Friday). Starting times vary according to the season, the two groups choose their own distance and route. Runners are generally in training for the next big race so distance varies while walkers normally walk 10 – 12km.

Sedgefield Striders maintains a running and walking ladder which is updated by our Club Secretary on a monthly basis.  Runners and Walkers are also welcome to join our Sedgefield Striders Strava Club where you can track your running or walking with GPS and join challenges, share photos from your activities and follow friends.
