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?

Endless Summer is a GO for Aug 29th. The race will be as contact-free as possible.
 

Even though Endless Summer will be contact-free, we need a few volunteers to help assist with parking in the morning and traffic monitoring during the race.  We need 4 people at 6am until 9:30am, and 4 people at 9:30am until 1pm.

 
Email John to volunteer to help! 

 
 

We will be practicing the following contact-free safeguards that will provide reasonable prevention of exposure to the virus and allow for a safe experience for all participants.

 
1 – Greenbury Point will be restricted to only runners and limited race management personnel. No support crews nor spectators allowed.  A volunteer will be stationed on the main road verifying cars and runners.
2 – Screening of all participants upon arrival at Greenbury Point will be documented.
  •         As runners arrive and while still in their cars, their names will be verified against the registration list.
  •         They will be asked whether they have experienced COVID 19 symptoms or been around anyone who has in the last two weeks. Answers will be recorded.
  •       Their temperature will be taken. Anyone with a temperature above 100.4 F will be refused access to Greenbury Point and instructed to leave and to contact their physician and seek medical advice.
3 – Runners will only be allowed to use Portable Toilets and hand washing stations provided, not the facilities at Greenbury Point.
  •         Runners will be required to use the Portable Hand Washing Stations prior to and after using the Portable Toilets.
  •         Portable Toilets will be cleaned – sprayed with disinfectant – after every use. 
  4 – Contact Free Race procedures
  •         Runners will be required to cover their mouth and nose, with a face cover (Buff, mask, etc.), at all times prior to start and immediately upon finishing.
  •         Runners will be instructed to exercise social distancing at all times, even while running.
  •         Runners will stay to the right of the path/trail while running and announce themselves when intending to pass another runner.
 
  •         Race packets contact free. Prior to the race, packets will be laid out in an area separate from one another, with only one person at a time allowed to retrieve a packet.
 
  •         No aid will be provided to runners. They will be required to provide their own aid from their vehicles during the race. 
  •         Vehicles will be parked end to end to ensure social distancing.
  •         A corral and wave system will be used
  •    10 runners at a time will line up in a corral with lines separating         individuals into six feet sections.  
  •    Runners will start one at a time separated by 10 seconds each.
 
  •         Event timing will be provided without any contact necessary by runners.
 
  •         Awards will be mailed or laid out in an area similar to race packets separate from one another, with only one person at a time allowed to retrieve an award. 
Other contact-free safeguards may be established so that we can still hold the event.

right-arrow-icon3.gif  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.

Message to our Members
June 3, 2020
 
I know everyone is anxious to resume some sort of normal. For the moment, things are heading in the right direction: stores and restaurants reopening, small group gatherings, etc. The Board met last to discuss upcoming races and training. Below is where we currently are.
 
Training
            Based on the current guidelines, we are not able to offer in person training. (Our group size exceeds the maximum allowed.) We will post the training schedules on the Annapolis Striders website so that everyone will be able to prepare for races.
 
Champ Series/Iron Man
            We do not want members’ streaks to come to an end because of health concerns created by the current pandemic. Last night, the Board made the decision to suspend 2020 Iron Man so that long running streaks may continue. This does not mean we have cancelled the series.   We will have champ series races if and when possible.
 
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



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.

Runners, 
 
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. 
 
While the details haven’t been ironed out yet, Endless Summer 6 Hour Run will explore switching to a virtual race run on the existing course. Please go to the  Endless Summer Facebook page or the Annapolis Striders webpage for more information.

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.

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

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

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:


endless summer run

 The Endless Summer 6 Hour Run is several months away, and we realize there is a high probability that the constraints, in dealing with COVID-19, will remain in effect come race day.  No later than May 30, 2020, a final determination for the 10th annual event will be made. 

 Provided below are possible courses of action we are evaluating:

  • Continue with the event as-is.
  • Postpone the event for a later date.
  • 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
 

 


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!

President, Annapolis Striders

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.
