Join the coaches for 5 weeks of summer fun runs. We will explore new trails, run through creeks and as always play plenty of games. Our goal is to build aerobic fitness through the hot summer month ahead of Cross Country Season. This season is a great opportunity for any kid to become a Strider and get their first introduction to the sport. Practices kick off July 9th, 2019 and will be held Tuesdays at 6:00 PM and Saturdays at 8:00 AM
The Summer will conclude with the Beat The Coach Mile on August 10th at DeGarmo Park. This event is free to the public! Check out our races tab.
We know many families vacation during the summer so this season is designed for Striders to join any time they are in town.
