From Annapolis Striders 
President, Eva Coale


 

Fellow Striders, in light of the continuing social distancing, the Annapolis Striders Board has decided to cancel the upcoming All Comers Track Meets (June 10th, 17th & 24th), the Dawson’s Father’s Day 10k (June 21st) and the Women’s Distance Festival/Run after the Women 5k (July 11th). It was not an easy decision to make. There were a number of factors that led us to this decision but the most important was the safety of the runners and the volunteers. We will continue to reevaluate and update members on the status of future events as the situation evolves and we receive more guidance from public health officials and local government.
 
Stay healthy!
Eva
 

If you already registered for the WDF/RATW, the race director will be in touch.



Membership management transitioned to RunSignup
 


As if you haven’t been blasted with enough emails already, here’s one last mention that we have moved our membership registration from Active to RunSignup.  We hope the email instructions for claiming your account weren’t too intimidating.
 
While the method can be quirky if you have multiple RunSignup accounts and used nicknames or different email addresses, for most people it is actually quite easy:  just click the Claim Account link and when prompted either create a RunSignup account or sign in to your existing one.  Then follow the prompts to claim your account.
 
Down the road RunSignup will be used for certain races as well.  For those that offer special member pricing, like Championship Series races where members pay less than non-members, your membership will be automatically recognized and you will be given the member rate.  RunSignup will also be used for no-cost registration for training programs that are free to members.
 
We appreciate you!  And we appreciate you taking the time to claim your account.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to Jeff Carlson.

Streak logo

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.  

 


Due to the continuing public health threat of coronavirus (COVID-19), the Annapolis Striders has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Annapolis 10 Mile Run. Although we have not opened registration for the 2020 event, there are some runners that deferred from 2019 to 2020 and we will provide registration details for those deferred runners later.
We have made the decision to cancel after careful deliberation, knowing that our foremost responsibility is to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our participants, our volunteers, our broader running community, and society at large. The current situation in the United States and throughout the world is one of disruption and uncertainty. We feel that moving forward with plans for a 4,000 person race is not aligned with what our government, medical experts, and society is asking us to do. While painful to do knowing the legacy that surrounds this event, we feel it is the responsible action to take in light of what is going on in the world around us. 
We thank you for your patience and kindness during this difficult period. We hope you all remain safe and healthy and we look forward to gathering with you in Annapolis in August 2021.

endless summer run

 The Endless Summer 6 Hour Run is currently planned for July 25th, and we realize there is a high probability that the constraints, in dealing with COVID-19, will remain in effect come race day.  Previously, we set a deadline of no later than May 30, 2020, for a final determination for the 10th annual event.  Based on the information we receive from the Navy, we may push that deadline back a few weeks. 

 Provided below are possible courses of action we are evaluating: 

  • Continue with the event as-is with modifications to the course such as removing the out and back portion of the first loop.
  • Postpone the event for a later date.
  • Continue the event in a virtual format to be determined.
  • Cancel the 2020 event and issue refunds or deferments, or donate entry fees to the Semper Fi Fund.
Currently, we have closed registration but have opened up the wait-list.  This means that if you are not already registered, and are thinking about signing up, you can put your name on the wait-list at no cost to you.  If the race is canceled, you will not have spent any money.  If the race is able to proceed, you will receive an email being invited to complete registration at that time.
If the race is held we will need volunteers.  To volunteer please email Email John

Register nowSee the Annapolis Striders website for more information and for mail-in registration.
 
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 
TRAINING

 
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.

The Annapolis Striders 2020 Annapolis 10 Mile Run is scheduled to be held 
Sunday, August 30th, 2020 
at the Navy-Marine Corps Stadium in Annapolis



Registration for the 45th Annual Annapolis 10 Mile Run,
 will open on a date to be determined.  

 Covid 19 Update:  We are hopeful the A-10 will happen this year, and we are monitoring the situation closely while working with the permitting authorities.  We will provide updates as available via our website and social media. 



B&A Half/Full Marathon update
 
It has been 5 weeks since Covid-19 put an end to our race. As of today, we are still following social distancing guidelines which prohibits our ability to distribute premiums.   Once we are able to gather again, we will schedule a time and place to distribute premiums.
 
The Annapolis Striders is a non-profit organization that exists solely to encourage and support running. Prior to race day, the club incurs many expenses that are non-refundable such as permits and premiums. The costs of these items are covered by the entry fees we receive which is why we specifically state there will be no refunds or deferrals on the registration website. That being said, we realize that many races are offering refunds or deferrals. Once we have a final accounting of costs incurred and funds received, we can determine the amount of refund we can offer to those requesting one. As some of you know, the Annapolis Striders also donates funds to local charities such as Anne Arundel Medical Center and local churches. The funding for these donations ultimately comes from you supporting our races. It is our hope that you would not request a refund and help us support the local charities that are supporting us during this crisis.
Stay healthy!

Fellow runners
 
We were hopeful that the health situation would rapidly improve and we would be able to conduct the 5K and 10K training programs as scheduled.  Unfortunately, that has not occurred and the Board determined, in the best interest of our members, that we will be canceling the training programs.  We will ask the coaches to email the training schedule to those who have registered for training.  In addition, it is the our intent to continue with group training programs as soon as the situation allows.  In other words, please follow the training schedule so when group runs commence, you will be ready.  
 
Stay healthy!

Fellow runners
 
We were hopeful that the health situation would rapidly improve and we would be able to conduct the 5K and 10K training programs as scheduled.  Unfortunately, that has not occurred and the Board determined, in the best interest of our members, that we will be canceling the training programs.  We will ask the coaches to email the training schedule to those who have registered for training.  In addition, it is the our intent to continue with group training programs as soon as the situation allows.  In other words, please follow the training schedule so when group runs commence, you will be ready.  
 
Stay healthy!

Thank you for joining us at our Annapolis Striders 2020 Annual Membership Meeting and Awards Banquet which was held Sunday, March 8, 2020 from 5:00pm-9:30pm at the Byzantium at the Ss. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church, 2747 Riva Road, in Annapolis. We are thrilled that you joined us and enjoyed your evening.

We are delighted with our turn out; this year we had 114 Annapolis Striders and guests in attendance. Our evening began with check-in and swag distribution. Next, we had our annual membership meeting welcoming our newly elected officers & board members. Reports were given on major events of 2019, review of the condition of our club, and a look into 2020. After our annual meeting, the cash bar was open; there was free soda, iced tea and coffee available. Folks enjoyed time to catch up with fellow runners and family members while noshing on fresh vegetables with blue cheese dip, assorted cheeses and gourmet crackers and hot, delicious, baked crab dip with baguette rounds. After appetizers, the dinner buffet was opened with choices of carved top round of beef with horseradish sauce, chicken marsala (a few were made without the sauce for folks that enjoy a gluten free meal), penne pasta marina, roasted potatoes, green beans, house salad with dressing on the side, fresh baked rolls and butter. As folks were finishing with dinner, the awards presentation took place. Congratulations to all the award recipients; well done!! The dessert bar was open after the awards presentations with many choices such as cake, brownies, lemon bars, etc…; perfect addition for anyone with a sweet tooth. Music and dancing were enjoyed by many.
 
Again, thank you to everyone for joining us. Also, thank you to Jasmin Haralambatos, with Custom Catering and her staff. They were friendly, professional and responsive to our every need. We cannot begin to express our sincere appreciation to Jasmin and her entire staff. Custom Catering provided an absolute stupendous evening with fabulous food and service. Everyone loved their meal, the venue and their evening; they are still raving about it. Jasmin is a true pleasure to work with and so incredibly accommodating; she made our evening fun and stress free. If you are interested in booking your next event at the Byzantium at the Ss. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church, 2747 Riva Road, in Annapolis, please contact Jasmin Haralambatos, with Custom Catering, 240-205-1190 and please mention that you are a member of the Annapolis Striders for special pricing.

With sadness

Rob Smith, a long-time Annapolis Strider, died on February 4 after a month long treatment for leukemia.  He had a great sense of humor and was a friend to many of us in the running community.  For many years, you could find him on Saturdays during football season volunteering to park cars at the USNA Stadium at the Cedar Park gate for the benefit of the Parole Rotary Club.  Rob was a former Assistant Attorney General for the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration and joined the law firm of Franch & Jarashow in the early 1990’s that became known as Franch, Jarashow & Smith.  Rob was active in civic affairs through the Parole Rotary Club.  He was an avid runner and member of the Annapolis Striders.  Rob is survived by his wife, Sherrie Burton Smith, and his children, Lindsay and Andrew.  A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 14, 11:00 AM, at the First Presbyterian Church, 171 Duke of Gloucester Street, Annapolis, Maryland  21401.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made to Rotary Club of Parole (Annapolis), P O Box 6327, Annapolis, MD 21401-0327. parole-rotary.org
