Important information for you

SPECIAL NOTICE
A letter from Annapolis Striders President,
Eva Coale

Message to our Members
September 24, 2021
 
 
I was hopeful that 2021 would NOT be like 2020. That when the clock struck 12 on New Year’s Eve there would be a reset and life would return to the way it was pre Covid-19. It didn’t happen. Unlike 2020, we have been able to obtain some race permits and host some races. Some have made money, some have broken even, and others have cost us. Luckily, the club is financially sound and we are surviving.
 
That being said, our purpose is to improve the physical fitness and mental well-being of our members through the promotion and encouragement of long-distance running. Our purpose is NOT to make money.
 
Yes, our race participant numbers are low. Yes, sometimes the volunteers outnumber the participants. Yes, sometimes it costs more than we collect in registration fees. Yes, we WILL encounter issues when hosting a race; but, that’s nothing new. 
 
We have 4 races remaining for 2021.  Please click the links for more information and registration.
 
Metric Marathon – October 3rd
Downs Park 5 Miler – November 6th
Rosaryville Veterans Day 50K – November 13th    
Anniversary Run 15K – December 12th
 
 
YES, we WILL have the champ series in 2022 along with our other races. Please be patient as I am certain we will encounter issues along the way. 
 
YES, we need volunteers to assist with races and training in order to keep the programs going. If you are interested, please reach out! If we all think someone else will take care of it, then no one ever will. Be brave, you’re a runner! You can do anything you put your mind to doing! 😊
 
We will get back to pre Covid-19 life; but it will be a SLOW return. We are continuing to promote and encourage running via our training programs and our races and, when YOU are ready, we are here!
 
Run safe!
Eva

SEPTEMBER
Bay Bridge Paddle
Sunday, September 26, 2021
Sandy Point State Park
This year, the Bay Bridge Paddle is being held during the Maryland Seafood Festival on Sunday, September 26th. This race will bring together all ages of paddlers to share in a day of camaraderie and fellowship.
Endurance athletes will love taking their training to the water for a new kind of challenge at the Bay Bridge Paddle, which attracts all levels of paddlers who race on the Chesapeake Bay on stand up paddleboards, kayaks, and other paddle craft.
Racers choose from three distances based on their level of experience:
The Span – 9 miles • Experienced
Paddlers race for the greatest distance under the span of the Bay Bridge, where water conditions can provide a great technical and endurance challenge.
The Steamer – 3 miles • Intermediate experience
Paddlers get a taste of racing under the Bay Bridge providing a technical challenge over a shorter, more accessible distance
The Soft Shell – 1 mile • Beginner
Newcomers to performance paddling who enjoy taking their fitness to the water will love our 1 mile course along the shoreline which is suitable for all levels and ages
All race participants receive a commemorative T-shirt and an energizing breakfast to help fuel up before the race.
 The Bay Bridge Paddle proudly supports the Foundation for Community Betterment.

OCTOBER

The club has been preparing and planning for the Metric Marathon at Southern High School. The applications for permits from the county were submitted at the beginning of August, but we are still waiting for approval.
The process for one of the permits has changed this year, which may be the reason for the delay. As soon as the permits are issued, we will open up registration for the race.

Sandy Point State Park
This year, the Bay Bridge Paddle is being held during the Maryland Seafood Festival on Sunday, September 26th. This race will bring together all ages of paddlers to share in a day of camaraderie and fellowship.
Endurance athletes will love taking their training to the water for a new kind of challenge at the Bay Bridge Paddle, which attracts all levels of paddlers who race on the Chesapeake Bay on stand up paddleboards, kayaks, and other paddle craft.
Racers choose from three distances based on their level of experience:
The Span – 9 miles • Experienced
Paddlers race for the greatest distance under the span of the Bay Bridge, where water conditions can provide a great technical and endurance challenge.
The Steamer – 3 miles • Intermediate experience
Paddlers get a taste of racing under the Bay Bridge providing a technical challenge over a shorter, more accessible distance
The Soft Shell – 1 mile • Beginner
Newcomers to performance paddling who enjoy taking their fitness to the water will love our 1 mile course along the shoreline which is suitable for all levels and ages
All race participants receive a commemorative T-shirt and an energizing breakfast to help fuel up before the race.
 The Bay Bridge Paddle proudly supports the Foundation for Community Betterment.

Bay Bridge Paddle
Sunday, September 26, 2021
Sandy Point State Park
This year, the Bay Bridge Paddle is being held during the Maryland Seafood Festival on Sunday, September 26th. This race will bring together all ages of paddlers to share in a day of camaraderie and fellowship.
Endurance athletes will love taking their training to the water for a new kind of challenge at the Bay Bridge Paddle, which attracts all levels of paddlers who race on the Chesapeake Bay on stand up paddleboards, kayaks, and other paddle craft.
Racers choose from three distances based on their level of experience:
The Span – 9 miles • Experienced
Paddlers race for the greatest distance under the span of the Bay Bridge, where water conditions can provide a great technical and endurance challenge.
The Steamer – 3 miles • Intermediate experience
Paddlers get a taste of racing under the Bay Bridge providing a technical challenge over a shorter, more accessible distance
The Soft Shell – 1 mile • Beginner
Newcomers to performance paddling who enjoy taking their fitness to the water will love our 1 mile course along the shoreline which is suitable for all levels and ages
All race participants receive a commemorative T-shirt and an energizing breakfast to help fuel up before the race.
 The Bay Bridge Paddle proudly supports the Foundation for Community Betterment.
