Colworth Str1ders

Admin Stuff



The Str1ders is a group of keen (and sometimes not so keen!) runners, cyclists, swimmers, kayakers, and orienteers. They aim to cater for anyone with an active interest in aerobic outdoor pursuits in general. Running is the main activity however and anyone is welcome to come along to the lunchtime training sessions which depart from the Colworth Club House at 12.15pm. The group runs between 4 and 8 miles (generally 7 to 9 minute miling pace), both on and off–road and sometimes incorporates speed sessions.

A New Runners group has recently formed who meet on Wednesdays.

The Str1ders are always looking for new recruits, so, if you want come and explore the vast network of paths, trails and tracks around Colworth, join up – no experience necessary!

Course maps are provided for the local races and other useful material is available, for example details of training sessions and suggested training paces as well as a comprehensive half–marathon training schedule.
