All Annapolis Striders events and races are organized and staffed by volunteers!
All Annapolis Striders members are encouraged to do their part and volunteer. Encourage your family members to also volunteer!
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT VOLUNTEERS ARE THE BACKBONE OF EVERY ANNAPOLIS STRIDERS RACE AND PROGRAM.
CURRENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:
The Streak wants to hear from you! There may not be any races going on right now, but we’re sure you still have stories to share. What was your first race? Favorite race? Most interesting running experience? How have you adapted your fitness routines to stay active? Have you done any good virtual challenges? Please send stories, race reports, photographs, artwork and even jokes to THE STREAK to be included in the next issue.
While we received positive feedback from the Navy about the use of Greenbury Point for the Endless Summer 6 Hour Run, they unfortunately will not be able to start looking at opening the facility until July.
The course is mostly in deep woods at Rosaryville State Park, though there is some running in meadows also. The trail is largely single track; not very technical. The Start (also the Finish) is at the Pavilion picnic area about three quarters of a mile from where the runners enter the single-track perimeter trail. Hot food after the race starting about 11:30. The race will end at 4:00pm.
The course has two aid stations about 4 1/2 miles apart. There will be a bag drop at the first aid station. We will transport bags from the Start to the bag drop site when the race begins and return them to the pavillion after the race–or you can pick up your bag as you leave the park.
To volunteer or for more information, contact Co-Race Director, Tom DeKornfeld or 410-562-4489
Volunteer validation available.
ANNAPOLIS STRIDERS RUNNER EDUCATION AND
Annapolis Striders membership is required to participate in these training programs. There is no fee for the training programs but you must register.
Additional information about training programs may be found on the Annapolis Striders website.
Are you running a marathon this fall?
Although we are not currently able to offer training, as the group of 100+ that would register far exceeds the allowable maximum, you should be out there running. It takes 18 weeks to properly train for a marathon and you need a base of 10 miles at the start. If you are running Baltimore or Marine Corps, your training should start the week of June 15th.
Fingers crossed that the races are held.

Great American 5000 June 14th-September 14th
The Great American 5000 is a virtual team run from San Francisco to New York – and everywhere in between! Assemble your crew of up to 12 or up to 24 people, run a cumulative 24 hours a day, and start to chip away at the 5,000k (3,107-mile) journey. An online map will track each group’s virtual progress across the country and a leaderboard will display the standings each day, with groups in open, female, and co-ed categories.
Your team has until September 14 to complete the 5,000k trek – that’s as few as 33.4 miles per day for your team (1.4 for each individual)!
Run, walk, hike – it can all count towards your team’s mileage.
And you can make your achievement mean something even more by donating and helping raise funds for Feeding America, our official Race Charity. Additionally, Events DC will donate and additional 10% of local race registrations to DC based Martha’s Table.
