Cheaper Race Entry Fees

Being a member of a running club will usually mean that you pay £1 or £2 per race less than runners unattached to a running club.

Club Kit

Stowmarket Striders sell a range of running clothes and accessories to the members of the club. The price of these items is usually non-profit making to assist members to afford running clothes. Most items however will advertise the clubs name upon it somewhere. Note that to run many races, club vests must be worn. Click here to see what club kit is available.

Discount at Shops and Sports Retailers
