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!

Save the Date: October 24: "Too Dark to Run in the Park" end-of-season finale at Racing City Brewery!

When: 6:00 pm

Where: 250 Excelsior Avenue

What: Food and drink specials, surprise run/game devised by Coach John Couch. Don't miss it!

Stryder Yoga! 

Join your Stryder friends each week for an "express" yoga class.  Each week we will focus on something different. Perfect for beginners and suitable for all levels.

When: Each Wednesday before the coached workout

Time: 5:00 pm - 5:40 p.m.
