As of 15/12/2014 we have moved to Astley Sports Village, Yew Tree Ln SK16 5BL
As a consequence of our continued expansion we have outgrown the facilities on offer ar the Village Hotel Hyde. We are very grateful for all the support the Village have given us over the twelve years they have kindly hosted our training sessions and we are pleased that we are parting on good terms.
Hyde Village Striders Running Club
We are based at Astley Sports Village, Yew Tree Lane, Dukinfiled, Greater Manchester SK16 5BL (map). Although some of our members are also members of the Astley Sports Village you do not have to be a member to join us.
We are an inclusive running club and are open to anybody over the age of 18 and interested in running. If you are already running and are interested in the club why not join us for a few runs? Just come down to the Village on a training evening and ask anybody in running gear to guide you to one of the coaches. They will ensure you are introduced to the most suitable group for you. Try us out for a few runs and then, if you enjoy the experience you can join the club. Membership is currently £15 per year and includes England Athletics affiliation so you get a discount on many race entry fees.
Stride Out for Beginners - free course starting in the New Year
Our free, eleven week Stride Out programme for adults wanting to get more active is organised two or three times per year to help people take their first steps into running.
The next course will start in the New Year. Please see the link above for full details and get in touch via the Contact page if you want to be sent an email when we have a start date for the next course.
We are registered as a Run England Group. To find out more about Run England click their logo below.
Formal training sessions are Monday and Wednesday evenings, meeting in Astley Sports Village (in the large hall at the end of the corridor to the right) at about 18:15 to leave at 18:30. We usually have five running groups which offers a wide range of distances and paces. In addition, members regularly meet informally to run, cycle and swim at other times.
Members take part in running races up to marathon distance and some also compete in triathlons up to iron distance. The club organises the Stride Through the Woods 5k multi-terrain race in April (Wednesday 22nd for 2015) and the Millbrook Monster 10k and Junior Monster 4k (Wednesday 29th July for 2015).
