Update On Early 2021 Races

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Annapolis Striders is making alterations to its early 2021 race schedule.

  • The Eternal Winter 6-Hour Run is on! This race is already full.  Any questions about this race should be directed to EternalWinter@annapolisstriders.org.
  • The Valentine’s 5K will be transitioned to a free, no-frills virtual race. This race will not count towards the Championship Series rankings. This will be the graduation run for the current Beginners 5K training program.
  • The B&A Marathon and Half Marathon is currently postponed. Once pandemic restrictions ease such that we can obtain permits with Anne Arundel County to safely hold a large event, we will revisit the scheduling of this race. We do hope to hold the 30th running of this race. Regardless we are currently holding a virtual Half Marathon training program for those interested in working up to half-marathon distance or improving their time.
  • The Cherry Pit 10 Miler is also projected to be a virtual race.  If virtual, this race will not count towards the Championship Series rankings but it will have a race premium (for a fee.)

The next race on the schedule after the Cherry Pit 10 Miler is Dawson’s Father Day 10K in June. It is our hope that we can hold this race in-person.

For those who look forward to the Championship Series rankings to resume, we also hope that we will begin scoring the series this year. The Championship Series rules accommodate races that we are unable to hold. If the Father’s Day 10K is the first Championship Series race we hold this year, then the scoring will begin with that race.

Stay healthy and safe out there.

-Annapolis Striders

2021 B&A Marathon and Half Marathon

This race has been postponed.

Thank you for your interest in the race.  Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, we will not be able to hold the race on the original date.  We are hopeful that mid-summer there will be a change that will allow for large gatherings.  Once this occurs, we will work with the County to obtain permits and determine a race date.   We are looking forward to that date and seeing you there.

Any runners interested in this opportunity?
I am a PhD candidate that is studying GI issues during running and how to reduce them. One of my dissertation studies involves having runners do 5-minutes of simple breathing exercises each day for 4 weeks and performing a few measurements (surveys, heart rate measures, etc.). As I am sure you can imagine, completing a dissertation in 2020 has been a challenge and I am looking for help! I’ve provided a recruitment flyer that outlines the study and the criteria for participating. Any help you could give would be very much appreciated!
 
I’d be happy to answer any questions about the study or provide additional information about what it involves.

Message to Our Members
We recently conducted a survey to find out how you are and your thoughts on what you would like to see the club doing. Thank you for your participation. If you have not yet completed your survey, please do so!
To date, we have received 281 responses split almost evenly between male/female. The majority of you are doing well which makes me happy to hear. Following are some of the responses:
·        Split about 50/50 for bringing back racing & training.
·        The majority are happy with socials as they are.
·        91% think we are still a good value and will be renewing their membership.
·        72% of those that responded are running solo.
·        55% of those that responded would like small group meetups.
·        68% of those that responded would like in person training.
·        Responses were split evenly on virtual races.
We hear you! Nothing would make us happier than to bring back racing and training. Unfortunately, with the rise in Covid-19 cases, it is not an option at this time as we are unable to obtain permits from Anne Arundel County. In the meantime, we are currently offering virtual Winter 5K training and will be starting virtual half-marathon training with the new year. Information about these training programs will soon be available on the Annapolis Striders website.
Stay positive. This will pass and we will be back training and racing in person before you know it!
I wish you and your family a Happy Holiday!

Hi Fellow Striders
I’m reaching out to you to ask for your support to put a wreath on 1,000 graves of departed veterans at Crownsville Veterans Cemetery. 
If you feel led to help please 
1 wreath is $15
2 would be $30 but if you buy 2 we get a 3rd for free.
Looking forward to a Covid free 2021 race season.
Thanks
Noreen Leary
