About our Club

Established over a decade ago Sunninghill Striders Running Club (SSCR) has grown into a well established, well organised local running club with just over 300 members. The SSRC serves the running community of Sunninghill and surrounds, providing a platform that is enjoyable, friendly and fun. The SSRC is also a regular top 10 finisher nationally at the Comrades Marathon and top 5 in Gauteng, in terms of the number of finishers by our members.

Although we do not focus solely on the Comrades Marathon, we do use this race as the start and end point of each running season. There are however many races across all distances during the year that our members enjoy and turn out in great numbers to participate in.

Our Club House

We are based at The St Stephens Anglican Church on the corner of Nanyuki and Van der Bijl drive (K60) in Sunninghill, which is also where our Tuesday Time Trials are held. Morning club runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays start from St Peters College just off Maxwell Drive. 

Our Sponsor

We are delighted that Brooks have come on board as our sponsor, with regular shoe draws at our month end Time Trial socials and events.
