Races we organise
As a club we organise two events each year.
Jacob Steel Summer Handicap
Worthing Striders organise their own handicap race series during the year with the winners being presented with the Jacobs Steel trophy at the AGM in September. Although a serious race series, the races are arranged to give every Strider a chance with different terrains and distances as well as predicting his/her own finishing time for some of the races which means running without a watch.
The 2017 Highdown Hike race will be on Wednesday 2nd August at 19.30.
The event will Start and Finish at the Striders HQ, West Worthing Tennis Club.
Please note that we will no longer be hosting the Downland Devil
Fixtures we support
As a club we support a number of fixtures including West Sussex Fun Run League, Sussex Cross Country and Sussex races.
West Sussex Fun Run League
These events take place at locations over the county hosted by local running clubs. Fun run league races are between 5km and 10km and cost just £3 to enter (advance cost for members). The emphasis is on the fun run element in all our races.
The WSFRL is made up of 18 member clubs from around Sussex. Each club holds an annual event which is open to any runner regardless of whether they are affiliated to the league. Many of the races are run over the stunning South Downs.
Runners from member clubs are awarded points for participation as well as position. Clubs accrue points over the year and compete for the Norman Crook Memorial Trophy.
Brooks Cross Country League
This is a series of four races, organised by the county, which take place annually between October and February at different venues across Sussex. Within the league there are age and gender graded distances of up to five miles.
After the final league race individual medals are awarded to the first three teams and first three individual athletes in all categories, with their best three runs taken into account.
