The Saratoga Stryders, a 501(c)(3) affiliate chapter of the Road Runners Club of America, are a group of enthusiastic runners based in Saratoga Springs, NY. Established in 1984, our goal is to promote fitness through running and related sports, to educate the community about the benefits of these activities, and to provide a bond for both serious and recreational runners. Our membership includes all ages and abilities, and our program is broad enough to accommodate the interests of everyone – from beginning walkers and runners to veteran marathoners. Though organized for our membership, our runs are open to the general public. Come take us for a test run!
