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.

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. 

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.

SSRC Survey

In order to evaluate and improve the services that the SSRC offers our members, we have developed a survey to gather your feedback about what is important to you and how well your experiences with the Club have met your expectations.

We value your honest responses and recommendations. The survey should take you less than it takes to run a mile, so grab a coffee, put your feet up and take our online survey.

Your responses are completely anonymous.
