We will meet at 7.15pm at the car park at Scrabo and the main session will be 3 sets of 8 minutes with a final charge to the tower at the end for a picture.

THE ARDS 5 MILE CHALLENGE 2019. Scrabo Striders running club are very pleased to announce that this long-established race will return on Friday 30th August at 7pm. Register online through Athletics NI, early bird rate until June 30th! SAVE THE DATE!

Ards 5 Mile has been on our racing calendar for many years. Ards Lions have organised this race annually and have the planning down to perfection, and we want to say a huge thank you to them for all of the time and effort they have put into this race and building its reputation over many years.
Regrettably they are unable to keep the race on due to other commitments.

We as a club would be devastated to see it disappear from the racing calendar so snapped it up when it was offered to us. Thankfully the Lions have included us in the planning and running of this event for the past couple of years and we hope to continue exactly where they have left off with another amazing event for us all to enjoy. The last race in the Baker McKenzie Super Fives Series!

We hope you will all support the event and join us on Friday 30th August at 7pm, Londonderry Park in Newtownards. Please share as much as possible. Thank you.

From Runher to Newry to Edinburgh. Another busy week for Scrabo Striders.

Well done tonight Striders! Great effort and super speeds all round πŸ’ͺ

Good evening Striders! I hope you have all recovered from Monday night's long hills at Stormont! Tomorrow night's session is flying 30's on the pitches. This is a great session for working your alactic system, this will boost your strength and ability to call upon bursts of speed when required in a race. We will meet at the pavilion at Londonderry Park for a 7.15pm start on the pitches. Looking forward to seeing you all there for a bit of speed work. Chris.
