Running for Everyone!

Scrabo Striders is a new running club in Newtownards, Co Down and welcomes runners of all abilities.

We meet on Monday and Wednesday evenings 7:15 - 8pm
at Londonderry Park Pavillion, Portaferry Road.

Our training sessions are tailored to the needs of members with qualified coaches that will motivate you in any weather!

Members have opportunities to get involved in a wide range of races both locally and further afield, from the local parkruns to marathons.

Walk, Jog or Run

From beginners to experienced runners, we welcome anyone who would like to come along and try a session before deciding to join us. Visiting runners are also welcome to attend our Monday and Wednesday sessions.

We hope that belonging to Scrabo Striders will offer all our members the chance to form new friendships, we organise regular social gatherings for members to connect and encourage each other.

If you would like any more information about the club please do not hesitate to get in touch.
