Change to Wednesday Training on 27th July 2022


Please note that since Portsmouth Joggers have now announced that their annual summer cross country race will take place on Wednesday, 27th July, at 7:15 pm there will be no official training session at Kidmore lane on that evening. The training schedule has been updated to reflect this.

All members are encouraged to enter this race – it is lovely venue and interesting course of approximately 5 miles – if a little undulating!

This has always been a popular race and, in recent years, has filled up quickly. Entries are limited to 250 runners so it is therefore highly recommended that you enter as soon as possible in order to secure your place- the relevant link is Summer Cross Country Entry.

Race Results from Sunday 24th April


Congratulations to the four Striders who all ran marathons in great times last Sunday.  Linda Taylor ran the Shakespeare marathon while Martin Parfitt, Jeffrey Streeter (achieved a PB) and Stuart Hoare  completed the Southampton  event. Equally commendable are Jenny Parks who ran the Southampton Half Marathon Gary McCawley and Anita Crawley who tackled the undulating  Angmering 10 mile Bluebell Trail Run and Nick Bailey for completing the 10k at the same venue.

AGM and Awards Evening 2022


This is just a reminder that the AGM & Awards Night takes place on the 18th March at the RNA Club.  The AGM starts at 7.15 with the Awards to follow after.  It would be great to see as many of you there to celebrate the successes over the last couple of tricky years.

Well done D10k and XC Teams!!

WOW,  Today I’m overwhelmed by the strength of such a small but mighty club!  Not only did we put on a successful Denmead 10k Race with a completely new race Committee but we also fielded a strong cross-country team.   For me this gives me strength and depth in our team.  Your commitment and dedication in everything you guys do makes me very proud to be a Strider. Thank you! 

It makes my job as Chair (whatever I am) very pleasurable
