Eastside Runners Club
The Seattle area running club for every type of runner
40 years running (founded 1981)
The Striders are a group that move at a jog or brisk walking pace. Any member who wants to come out is invited. Those just starting a running habit, or just getting back into one, are especially welcome.
The Striders meet on Saturday mornings at the same location as the Saturday run. They start before the main group, at 7:30 am, and go out for one hour before returning to meet up with the other runners at 8:30. Those who choose will then go out for another hour or so before returning to rejoin the group for our usual post-exercise socializing. The Striders’ routes will not usually be on the same course as the 8:30 run. When possible the route will be on a soft surface (dirt or grass) but sometimes it will be on asphalt or concrete. There may not be a Striders meetup every Saturday, so check this page or the Saturday email to make sure of a particular date.
To join, sign up from the Saturday run email and where the signup asks your pace, type "Strider 7:30 am". That way we know to look for you at 7:30. Hope to see you out there!
