Egg hunt 5K coming up March 31

Come join the 2nd of our 5K race series at the Socorro Rodeo Grounds and Soccer Complex on Saturday March 31! We'll start registration around 8:30am and follow the beautiful 5K cross country course. It looks like we'll be running just after the City egg hunt, so race may start a few minutes after 9am. Be sure to bring the kids! There will be eggs to find along the 5K course as well.

5$ per person, this includes your SSR membership.

See you out there!

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!
