The Gate City Striders are many things.  We're a local club with members from across the country.  We put on low-key, no-frills races and direct large-scale, award-winning events.  We're instructors and volunteers.  We run in the summer, winter and every other season in between.  We're a social club with a competitive side.  We are beginners and advanced.  And, we're proud to be both young and young at heart!  In short, The Gate City Striders are much more than the sum of our parts.  We're a whole lot of serious fun!
