Join us for our Monthly Socials (every second Thursday of the month).  
 We congregate in the bar area and folks tend to arrive and depart as their schedules permit.  There are often folks still eating, drinking and mingling until 10-11 pm because it is such a fun bunch of people. If you are new to town, the Striders, or our socials, don't be shy-- it is a friendly crew and runners love to meet new people and talk about their races, injuries and adventures!  
All current Annapolis Strider members and prospective members are welcome!
Note:  Responses to the socials are not required, however, if you "join" the event on Facebook it helps us give a more accurate estimate of turnout to the venue; which is appreciated.  Please remember to "take good care" of your bartender and/or server!
