If you see a reddish-brown box next to your name with the letters EXP, you need to renew your membership. The EXP stands for EXPIRES. To participate in the championship series, you must be a member. 
At any time you may check your membership status by looking at the Membership Roster on the Annapolis Striders website.

 2019 Annapolis 10 Mile Run
Our 44th year!
Sunday, August 25th, 2019

There is a price increase on June 15th.

New this year, we will be giving a finisher’s medal, along with the finisher’s 1/2 zip long sleeve tech shirt. 


The Annapolis Striders are now looking for volunteers to step up and learn the timing process. This job is interesting and important.  Interesting, because it allows you to see the entire field of runners cross the finish line in every condition, from completely exhausted to totally unfazed, and everything in between. But also extremely important! If we don’t have a finish line and timing crew, we don’t have a race! So please give it a try. Interested members please contact Dan Symancyk
