The St Albans Striders membership year runs from April to March each year, concurrent with the England Athletics membership year.
The cost for club membership for the full year or any part of it is £27. If you have volunteered at a Striders event between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2019 then you are eligible for volunteer membership at the discounted rate of £17.
The St Albans Striders provide plenty of opportunities to race, including races organised by the club, league events that the club enters, and locally organised races. If you intend to run, please wear a club vest, available from our online shop.
During the winter we enter the County, Southern and National Cross-Country (XC) championships and take part in the Chiltern and Sunday Leagues. For the Southern, County & Nationals individuals have to be entered in advance, by the club captains. For more information please see the Cross Country Page.
Mid Week Road Race League
During the summer the club enters the Mid Week Road Race League, with 5 races hosted at a number of local clubs (including one in St Albans) over a distance of approx. 10k. See the MWRRL section for more details.
There are opportunities to compete on the track as we are affiliated with St Albans Athletics Club who take part in the Southern Athletics League. We also take part in the Southern Counties Vets League. See the Track & Field section for more details.
Beyond our host races, club championship races, cross country, road league and track races, Striders can be found at many other events, from parkrun to the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc!
