Newark Striders Running Club
The club is for anyone who wants to run but is unsure how to start and they welcome runners of all abilities. Anyone applying for membership shall be eligible regardless of ability, race, colour or any other factor.
Mondays is an absolute "I'm not really sure I can run!" beginners class from 18:45 - 19:30 meeting outside Flowserve Social Club.
If you are already running a little then you will find plenty of runners in the club who will be able to push you that bit further and faster - just have a chat with them and they'll see what they can do. Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate minors in the club.
Beginners and intermediates meet on Wednesdays at 6.45pm, meeting outside the Flowserve Social Club.
