Annapolis Striders Spring 5k Beginning Running Training

Class started Tuesday, April 23, 2024, 6 PM 

Bates Athletic Complex – Weems Whelan Field.

E.T./Evan Thomas Jesters

In memoriam for Coach Emeritus and 5k class founder, former Annapolis Striders President, marathoner Evan Thomas (a.k.a. E.T.), we will call ourselves “E.T.’s Jesters”. We will continue his mission and love of running with a healthier lifestyle. “Regular exercise has saved my life,” Evan wrote in his farewell Capital column in 2018. “Mostly, however, it has brought a joy I have tried to share with others.”. In 1993 he formed the first Annapolis Striders Beginning Runners Program class. He has coached thousands of participants in the sport of running. Evan was well known for his humorous antics and quirky behaviour during class and even wearing a jester’s hat to always follow Rule #1: “Have FUN!” during class. The program is a Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) award winning beginning running class. We will have “E.T. made me do it!” on the back of our spring class shirts.
