Welcome to the website for the The Kingstowne Striders!

The Kingstowne Striders is a group founded on a mutual interest in running, walking, and fitness. We welcome runners and walkers of every creed and speed. We serve the needs of recreational and competitive runners in southern Fairfax County and Alexandria, Virginia. The club promotes and supports running and walking at a wide range of paces. Our activities safely promote health, fitness, and the achievement of personal goals in an atmosphere of fun, fellowship, and camaraderie.

8th Annual Kingstowne Striders Turkey Trot
Thursday, November 23 at 9 AM
Starbucks (5860 Kingstowne Center, Alexandria, VA)

Join us for the 8th annual Kingstowne Striders Turkey Trot Thanksgiving morning at 9:00am. Meet outside the Kingstowne Safeway (the Starbucks is the only thing open). ***Please note that we are meeting outside the Starbucks IN the Safeway not the standalone Starbucks store next to the Giant.

Registration is FREE for members! No free t-shirt and race timing will be very non-existent, but it will be a fun course. Burn some room for your turkey feast! (And pick up any last minute items at Safeway if needed!)

Per Tradition, our Turkey Trot is also the OFFICIAL START of the Kingstowne Striders Annual WINTER STREAK! It's a streak where you keep your clothes on (if you wish) - simply RUN or WALK 1 mile PER DAY from Thanksgiving Day thru New Year's Day! We offer plenty of options to join us, from Day 1 at our TURKEY TROT, to our four weekly group runs, to our Holiday Caroling Run (Dec. xx - details TBA) ending at our NEW YEAR'S DAY RELAY! 

If you need the Google Doc link please email Amelia at Treasurer@KingstowneStriders.org
