Gaborone Striders Runners Club

Our Strides, Our Stories

Gaborone Striders Runners Club


Founded in early 2012 by a group of friends who had just discovered the passion in running, we rose to become an established part of the Gaborone sporting community. At weekly runs and weekend events our international crew gathers in Gaborone to run while they take turns to cater for the long demanding runs. We do not only care about how fast we run, but also care a lot about the people we run with, the environment we run on and the communities we impact with our running culture. As social runners we travel together to races abroad to discover cities and to meet people that we share our passion with.
We are not just a club. We are family and friends. We are the GABORONE STRIDERS and we just simply love running.
The success of our club is very much imbedded in the unity of its members and at the pinnacle of it all – our catering program. We believe a runner must be fed!
