Howard County Striders Training Programs


Coaching & Coordinating Info Session (March 2021)

All coaches and coordinators in the Howard County Striders training programs are volunteers who give their time to help their peers reach their running goals. We are always looking for more volunteers so we can expand our training programs to reach more club members.

Interested in learning more? Listen to our Zoom information session below on what is required of coaches and coordinators in our training programs (we will hopefully have a version with the Zoom video feeds uploaded soon!). If you have additional questions, feel free to reach out to the training programs coordinator Rachel Sanborn at specialprograms@striders.net.
