The Motor City Striders

Celebrating 59 years of Long Distance Running

Dear Strider-

Thank you for joining us in running and racing in 2017.  This year we celebrate the 59th year in which the Striders have promoted health and fitness through long distance running.  The very first race held by the club was a five0mile event on Belle Isle on June 11, 1959.  In the years since that first event, the club has conducted over a thousand other races.

We hope you can join us- as a participant, or volunteer, as we celebrate our 59th year on the roads!


Ed Kozloff, Club President
