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.

Good evening Striders! I hope you all have had a good weekend. Tomorrow night's session is 2's and 1's. As the Monday night session is generally a bit longer we have added 200's into the mix too, so..... the session will be run on the 800m route and we will be running at your maximum on the 200m section of the stony path and then recovering round to the 100m section where you will give it 100% again before recovering back to the 200m section of the stony path again. This is a variation of the Drop the Hammer session and will build speed and stamina. We will meet as usual at Londonderry Park at the Pavillion at 7.15pm for a session brief, followed by a warm up before starting into the main session. Look forward to seeing you all there, Chris.
