    • 6:15 PM - 7:15 PM
    • Kalabus Perry Hiking Area, 109-199 Gailor Lane, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

    The KP trail system is part of the Saratoga County Trails Initiative that offers some forested single track running with many switchbacks.  We’ll start at the large parking lot at the end of Gailor Lane and take the orange trail with a short jaunt on the yellow trail to get some elevation gain.  We’ll need to stay together as there are many intersections, especially at the #6 junction that Laura Clark describes as the Tibetan Prayer Monument (TPM) where there are multiple color trails and flagging ribbons that decorate the forest. 

    Please arrive 15 minutes early, at 6:00 pm if possible, to allow for warming up. The run starts promptly at 6:15 pm.

    Please join us for the annual Stryders Summer Picnic from 1-5 p.m. Sunday,  July 21 at the MWR Community Recreation Center, 3569 Galway Road in Ballston Spa.

    The club provides meat for the grill, buns and drinks  (beer, wine and soft drinks) and we ask attendees bring a dish to share. Please feel free to bring anything special (food or drink) you’d like for yourself, your family or others.

    The MWR Community Recreation Center also features a playground and fields we can use so you can also bring your favorite outdoor game. 

    Family and friends are welcome.  No pets please.

    The facility features a covered pavilion so we are a GO rain or shine.

    Grilling starts around 2 p.m. - hope to see you there.

    Thank you!

    • Hudson Valley TEC-Smart, 345 Hermes Rd, Ballston Spa, NY 12020

    This time we’ll head a little further south to cruise the LFTP trails.  These trail are twisty as they are used mostly by mountain bikers. Like the KP trails, we will need to stay close together because of the many intersections. Coach Couch, Rick Potts and myself will be the trail leads.  We will meet at the HVCC Tech Smart parking lot nearest the entrance to the campus.

    Hudson Valley TEC-Smart, 345 Hermes Rd, Ballston Spa, NY 12020

    Please arrive 15 minutes early, at 6:00 pm if possible, to allow for warming up. The run starts promptly at 6:15 pm.
