Spring 5k Series Update

In light of the continuing developments with COVID-19, Striders and Riders must cancel or postpone several running events.  Connor's Causes is postponed indefinitely and the rest of our spring series may be postponed or canceled.  We will continue to update you as decisions are made.  As developments evolve, we plan to follow the crowd and gathering guidelines set forth by our government.  Your health and the health of our community are the most important. 

We hope you are spending a bit of your "stay at home" time running, walking or indoor cycling (less chance of injury!)  Luckily, our beautiful rural New Mexico provides plenty of space for you exercise but keep a safe distance to help slow the spread of the virus.  Please stay healthy so we can all hit the road/trails etc together when time is right again!

Valentines 5k Results

It was a great day to take to the trail at the City Rodeo Grounds and run 3.1.  We had a great turn out: a big group of kids from New Mexico Tech, several community members, one family with kids and one couple with a family on the way!  We are so happy to host a variety of folks all interested in better health and community through striding... and riding :). 

If you couldn't make it today plan on participating in our next run: Connor's Causes on March 28 at the Plaza.  This is a race NOT TO BE MISSED!  If you're not sure about participating in the SSR 5ks, this is a great race try it out.  There is guaranteed to be lots of community members of all ages and ability levels.  The run is organized by the Johnson family and all proceeds will go toward the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  You can already sign up online!  The details and race sign up page can be found at  We hope to see you there!
