Who are the NBS Nelson Striders?

Where do we come from?
The Striders were formed in 1987 by a group of 'like minded' joggers interested in company when jogging; support with training expertise; and to feel equal regardless of the individuals level of ability. In short……. we were tired of feeling second class because we weren't the youngest or fastest around!

Who are we here for?
Anyone who wants company - regularly or occasionally, is welcome. Striders cater for everyone with our philosophy of never leaving anyone alone. Those into racing can find advice, guidance and company for training; those more sedate enjoy the company (and the gossip sessions!)

What does it cost?
The Striders have no annual subscriptions. Being active is what's important to us so we don't charge people to enjoy our company.

How to join us
The Striders meet in the carpark opposite the Suter Art Gallery, Bridge Street, Nelson.

Tuesday 5.45pm Thursday 5.45pm Sat 7.30am
