The Striders Racing Team, established in the Summer of 2006, seeks to assemble and recognize highly talented and competitive individuals of the Howard County Striders. Since 2006, the Striders have partnered with Feet First Sports to recognize elite runners. In the Fall of 2011, the Development team was created to recognize competitive athletes who are already distinguished locally and have the potential to become members of the Elite team.
As a member of the Elite racing team, individuals receive a racing team singlet, running shirt, and a team jacket. In addition, Elite team members receive a 30% discount on running shoes purchased through Feet First Sports as well as complimentary or subsidized entries to local races (i.e., Kelly’s Shamrock 5K, Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run, Clyde’s 10K, Spring Hops 5K, WDF 5K, Annapolis 10 Mile Run, Run Through the Grapevine 8K) and occasional team competitions (i.e., Baltimore Marathon Relay).
Members of the Development team will receive a singlet and complimentary entries to several races organized and/or supported by the Howard County Striders (e.g., Clyde’s 10K, Spring Hops 5K, WDF 5K, Run Through the Grapevine 8K).
