We were formed by a group of enthusiastic runners who were also members of the Village Health & Fitness Club in 2002. Since then the club has expanded considerably and now has about 140 members who run regularly. Club members do not have to be members of Astley Sports Village but some are.
In April 2011 the club put on its first event, the Stride Through the Woods Multi-Terrain 5k. The event was a great success, and will now be held annually along with the Millbrook Monster 10k which we have taken over from Kiwi Classic Events. Half of the profit from the races is donated to Willow Wood Hospice and the rest goes in to running the club and putting on the races.
Each year the club helps new runners to get started, through its 12 week 'Stride Out' programme. This is free and is held two or three times a year. Please contact us if you are interested in joining the next programme.
The club colours are turquoise blue vests, with royal blue side panels, and black shorts. Sweatshop in Hyde now stock the club vests for us.
