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.
Kingstowne Striders Board Meeting
In honor of volunteer service for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, please join us on Monday, January 16th at 7pm to meet your 2017 volunteer Kingstowne Striders Board and to hear about the year ahead!
Email president @ kingstownestriders.org by 4pm (no spaces, of course) for the address to Amanda Farrar's house in Hayfield.
Our Board meetings are fun, social gatherings where we accomplish all the great things you love about this club! Have we held an event on a date where you couldn't attend (DC night run perhaps?) Those dates are set at our board meetings! Have a run or event (biking? swimming? other?) you'd like to host? This is the place to make it happen!
Hope to see you on Monday!
