Stowmarket Striders
Running Club

Stowmarket Striders Club Kit

New lightweight vests are available. These look the same as the current vests, but are of a thinner material and do not have the seams down the front and back. Members are able to choose between these two vests when they buy.

With the introduction of the new lightweight vest, the committee have decided to retire the two oldest vest designs from April 2019. This means that they can no longer be worn during race participation but can certainly be used for training.

Striders Club Vests are available to purchase from our Kit Officer, Gill Charlton. Gill will bring stock to the club on the first Tuesday of every month for you to purchase or you can email Gill on Training kit is now available to purchase from the club online shop. (please see online shop link below.)

Remember that when representing the club in a running event you must wear the registered Club Vest with black shorts or leggings.

The club does not make any profit on club vest sales and sells strictly at cost.

Sizes available:

Ladies  - 6 to 20 (2XS to 3XL)

Stowmarket Striders On-Line Shop


We are starting a Club Vest Exchange for Juniors where you can exchange your ‘preloved’ Juniors club vest for a larger size as your child grows – this is obviously dependent on whether we have the ‘pre-loved’ size you need available at the time, but hopefully this will reduce the cost considerably for parents whose children train with the club long-term.

Please note all club members, including Juniors will need to wear an official Club Vest and black shorts/running tights to compete in any races as a Strider.

How the Vest Exchange works:

  • If you don’t have an existing club vest to exchange and we have the size you need in the Vest Exchange then ‘pre-loved’ vests will cost £10.00 to junior club members (rather than £20 for buying new).
  • If you do have a vest to exchange and we have your new size available in ‘pre-loved’ stock then you can swap your old vest (must be in good condition) for the new size preloved one (no fee).
  • If you have out-grown your old vest and we don’t have the bigger size you need in the Vest Exchange we will give you a £10 credit towards the purchase of a new one if you donate your old vest to the Vest Exchange (must be in good condition).

To take advantage of the Vest Exchange, please see Julia Baldwin (Junior Coach) on Tuesday nights.
