Happy 9th Birthday Run!
Happy Birthday Kingstowne Striders

 

On Saturday, March 17, St. Patrick's Day, come join the Kingstowne Striders for a FREE Group Run from the brewery at 2:00PM! This will be the first “Strides ‘n Hops” group run of 2018 and we are excited to start our fourth year running with Kingstowne Striders!

Saturday, March 17 will also be the spring kick-off for our summer Strides & Hops summer group run season! We will have 1, 3 mile and 5 mile route options with post run beers after at the now three-year-old award-winning craft brewery in Southern Fairfax County. Kingstowne Striders will be hosting a pre-run information session about our running club alongside a local Ragnar Relay Ambassador and post-run we will be holding a raffle for attendees!

Training for a marathon or half marathon by yourself? Was your New Year's Resolution to run more in 2018 and you need some motivation? The Striders can provide all those things!

Please be a few minutes early so we can start promptly at 2:00PM.

The Kingstowne Striders will have a team participating at the Ragnar Trail Relay in Richmond, VA on April 27-28. Eight of us will be running 15.4 miles each through the trails of Pocahontas State Park, with maybe a little bit of sleep mixed in as well.  The team is being captained by Stephen Gunderson and will feature five veterans of previous DC Ragnar relays making their debuts on the trails!

More information on this event can be found here: https://www.runragnar.com/event-detail/trail/richmond_va 

STRIDERS! VIP REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR Ragnar Relay Series DC! This year it will be September 28-29, 2018.

Amelia will be captain-ing for the third year in a row and will be running this race for the 8th time.

Note: I've booked 3 cabins at 7 C's Lodging (same place as last year) for Thursday night. Price will be the same at $230/person (including race registration, Thursday cabins and two massive vans).

Once I have 5 people commit by paying (PayPal to amelia.baldree@gmail.com or check at a group run) I'll register the team. Cabins are already guaranteed. Looking forward to this!

The Kingstowne Striders of Alexandria, VA are proud to present the 9th annual "Fill the Shoes" 5K in honor of Jack. T. Farrar Jr., a long time Hayfield Farm resident who passed away in November, 2005 just 3 months after a diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

This community race is dedicated to Jack and all people affected by pancreatic cancer.  All net proceeds of this event will go directly to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (www.pancan.org) to support them in their mission to "advance research, support patients and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer".
