New lightweight vests are on order. 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. Once the order has been received, members will be 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
Club Vest - £20.00
The vest is available in junior and senior sizes, with a straight or racerback option for both ladies and men.
Ladies - 6 to 20 (2XS to 3XL)
Mens - 28 to 46 (XSB to XL)
Please note, these vest sizes come up a little small, so we recommend you go one size up from what you normally expect to fit - consult the size charts links below for accurrate dimensions.
Juniors vests are included in the above size guides. For the Junior Vest Exchange for preloved vests - please see below
Standard back (left image) and racerback (right)

JUNIORS 'PRELOVED' CLUB VEST EXCHANGE
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:
To take advantage of the Vest Exchange, please see Julia Baldwin (Junior Coach) on Tuesday nights.
