Welcome to the website for the The Kingstowne Striders!

The Kingstowne Striders is a group founded on a mutual interest in running, walking, and fitness. We welcome runners and walkers of every creed and speed. We serve the needs of recreational and competitive runners in southern Fairfax County and Alexandria, Virginia. The club promotes and supports running and walking at a wide range of paces. Our activities safely promote health, fitness, and the achievement of personal goals in an atmosphere of fun, fellowship, and camaraderie.

Please bear with us while launching our new and improved website! Email any glitches or information to add to president@kingstownestriders.org

Springfield Days Stride 2K on Saturday, May 30 at 8:30am!

Inviting all comers to the May 30 Springfield Days Stride 2K!

The Kingstowne Striders, greater Springfield's local nonprofit running and walking club, invite you to join in a celebration of being active on your feet!

The upcoming Springfield Days weekend (May 30-31) is all about getting together to have some fun as a community, so start the weekend right by coming out Saturday morning May 30 for a casual 2K stride (that's 1.2 miles). Just stride as you wish -- stroll, walk, jog, whatever --then linger for the post-race breakfast and conversation. And feel free to bring youngsters in strollers and friendly leashed pets.

The Springfield Days Stride 2K will start at 8:30am just south of the Springfield Town Center and break up around 10, which is a perfect time to continue the fun at other Springfield Days venues like the farmers market right next door, the classic car show, PetFest, the small business expo, or just stop by the Springfield Town Center for some first-rate shopping! For more info on Springfield Days, hit www.SpringfieldDays.com.

Registration is just $10 per person or $25 for a family. If you want a shirt, that's another $10. If you are a member of the Kingstowne Striders club, your membership fees cover participation in the event so you can register for free!

Online registration for the Springfield Days Stride is now open. For or more information and to register, visit www.signmeup.com/site/online-event-registration/107993.

See you there May 30!

Note that the big Springfield race normally held on Springfield Days Saturday is postponed, likely to fall 2015. Details coming in the summer months.

Congrats to the Striders who participated in Wave One's open water swim at National Harbor on May 27! Four Striders completed a total of 8 laps in the Potomac before we had to end early due to approaching thunder - that's almost 2800 meters or 2 miles of swimming! We will arrange for another group open water swim sometime in August and/or September in preparation for the Nation's Triathlon.

What better way to celebrate summer in Southern Fairfax County than a new run from the new brewery in Lorton?

If you haven't already come run with us on Thursday, June 4 at 6:30 PM from Fair Winds Brewery. We'll have 1 mile, 3 mile and 5 mile route options and celebrate with post-run beers.
