2017 Wrap up Socorro Striders and Riders

Race results for the final 5K of the fall series are posted below. Congratulations to our overall race series winners are Colton Dow and Graciela Garcia!

Striders and Riders annual board meeting held at John's house on December 9 resulted in a re-election of officers (John as president, Stacy as VP and Harold as Treasurer). Board members elected this year are Lynette Napier and Julie Ford.

We will be planning a spring 5K series to begin in February, the Socorro Chile Harvest Youth and Adult Triathlon in August and a fall 5K series. These events will NEED our community support - in many little ways. Consider offering to volunteer - you can help set up race registrations, set courses, direct races, or simply share info about our sweet little group to get more folks involved. Feel free to reach out by email to .

Thanks to all of you who have come to our races to participate, volunteer, donate food and time, or simply cheer! It all helps support our mission to promote healthy exercise activities, including running, biking and swimming, in our community.

Thank you Socorro! And happy holidays from Socorro Striders and Riders!

2017 Run For Your Life 5k & Mile Results and Photos

On Saturday, the 30th of September, we had another great Run For Your Life Event. With over hundred participants, mostly 5k runners, we saw our very own club president pull off the win on a cool, beautiful morning. On behalf of Striders and Riders, I would like to thank Presbyterian and SGH for their immense efforts in this event's logistics and community engagement that got so many people out.
