The Howard County Striders are an incorporated non-profit organization dedicated to promoting lifetime fitness through running, based in central Maryland.
We sponsor or support many types of activities, including high quality race events, group runs, low-key weekly races, and a robust complement of training programs for both adults and youth, from beginners on up, to support continued active lifestyles in the community.
The Striders, with the support of Howard County government and businesses, recently applied to be designated as an RRCA Runner Friendly Community! Part of the application was a video submission summarizing how our club contributes to the Columbia running scene. This video was put together by Striders member Mike Fleming, who volunteers his time by taking pictures at many Striders events. The RRCA will announce the new Runner Friendly Communities in January.
