Kingstowne Striders Past Events: 2009
Founded in 2009, we've done some pretty cool stuff in 8 years!
The Kingstowne Striders held our first 'inaugural' run on January 24, 2009 in honor of the Presidential Inauguration. Every year since we hold a usually chilly January "birthday/anniversary run" on that same first route through Kingstowne.
The first Striders group run ever!
At first we met for group runs on Saturday mornings, eventually adding some Sunday longer runs by March. In June we launched "Intervals Wednesdays" which are now our summer track workouts at Edison High School. Founded by Kevin and Suzanne Shaw, the Striders also held their first Summer Cookout and Potluck in June 2009 as well. We continued on Strider Strong through the fall with our first groups in the Army 10 Miler and Marine Corp Marathon (with pre-race pasta potlucks!), Run with the Eagles 5K at Edison High School, a Halloween run (no costumes necessary), and Turkey Trot (pictures below).
The First Ever Kingstowne Striders Turkey Trot!
