Elvet Striders running club

Hi - I live in Durham and have heard about a running club called Elvet Striders - does anyone know them or is a member?

I would like to join - their website is really good and they say they welcome runners of any fitness and ambition but not sure what this means as I have heard horror stories of some running clubs saying beginners must be able to run 10 miles to join.

I can only manage 4.5 miles at the moment at around a 10/11 minute mile pace and I'm training for the GNR.

If anyone has any info I'd be grateful!




  • I think I've seen them in and around Durham on a Wednesday night.  Some of them are super quick, but others are mere mortals.  Give it a go - what's the worst that could happen? image
