Dawson’s Father’s Day 10K
(Sunday, June 17th)

Streak logo Articles are due now for the next print issue of The Streak!  This issue will include fall, winter and spring Annapolis Striders races, training and any running stories you would like to share.  Send your articles and photos to Editor Lauren Colvin.

Cherry pit 
The 2018 Cherry Pit 10 Mile Race will be held Sunday, May 13th at South River High School. This is the 2nd Leg of the Championship Series and our  39th year!

If you have registered for 
the Annapolis Striders Championship Series….you are good to go!

Race day sign ups available for $20!

The date of the race had to move from the first week in April to the second week in May because of scheduling conflicts at the high school.  We think this new date will work out well. Now it is not so close to the B&A Marathon. Also, the weather should be warm but not hot; and after the race you will still have plenty of time to go out to your Mother’s Day brunch. 

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED!

The Winter Half Marathon Program concluded Sunday April 8th at the B&A Trail Marathon and Half.  Thirty-nine of the 176 who registered, and perhaps a few more, competed in either the full or half marathon.  Ninety-seven runners participated in more than 75% of the group long runs…an average of 61 enthusiastic and happy faces each Saturday AM.  They dodged snow, but not the chill as they ran for 11 weeks in an average temp of 32, with a low of 14 and a high of 44 degrees.  On Monday evening April 9th about 25 gathered at Union Jack’s in Annapolis Towne Centre to celebrate the conclusion of the training season with Coaches Michael Myers and Dave Dold.  Everyone is looking forward to a summer of running.

Cherry pit 
The 2018 Cherry Pit 10 Mile Race will be held Sunday, May 13th at South River High School. This is the 2nd Leg of the Championship Series and our  39th year!

The date of the race had to move from the first week in April to the second week in May because of scheduling conflicts at the high school.  We think this new date will work out well. Now it is not so close to the B&A Marathon. Also, the weather should be warm but not hot; and after the race you will still have plenty of time to go out to your Mother’s Day brunch.

It’s March 1st, which means that the Annapolis Striders Spring 10K Training starts this month.

In the near term, you can “Meet the Coaches” at the Annapolis Striders March social (Thursday, March 8th at 6:30 at Chevy’s Fresh Mexican Restaurant on Solomons Island Rd.) where the three coaches will be available to discuss the training and answer your questions.
