The Annapolis Striders club will only survive with volunteers. 

We are in need of a Race Director for the Cherry Pit 10 mile run in April. 

Also, our current race director for the B&A Marathon and Half Marathon will be stepping down after this year, so the club is looking for her replacement. It would be beneficial if the new director could train under the current one for this year’s race.

Please contact the VP of Races if you are interested in either one of these positions.

Thank you.

Larry Puglisi, VP of Races

Annapolis Striders Group Runs

Are you looking for a group run to join on a regular basis, but you aren’t sure where to start? You are not alone! That’s one of the most frequently asked questions by newcomers and long-time Annapolis residents alike.

The Annapolis Striders are looking for a leader to organize a low-key weekly running event. It could be a long distance weekend run, a short distance mid-week evening run, or maybe

resurrect the 6-0-6 running group that used to meet daily at 6:06am on Dock Street. The possibilities are limitless, but we need someone to lead the event. Please contact to volunteer. 

Once we have a lead volunteer, check future E-Streak announcements for the sign up form to join the fun!
