East Texas Striders

east-texas-stridersWhether you are looking to improve your 5K time, complete your first marathon, or just run for the fun of it, every runner in the Tyler area needs to check out East Texas Striders.  Formed this year (2009), the group is still small but growing, and there are already a good variety of paces represented.  The group meets every Saturday and Sunday for group runs, and every Thursday the group meets for speedwork at the T.K. Gorman track.

Members receive an East Texas Striders technical tee or singlet, a 10% off discount card for Racquet & Jog, and discounted entree fees for local races.  Members also get to enjoy various group activities, like the recently held Prediction Run which took place at the South Tyler Trails.  Perhaps the most valuable perk of membership is all the helpful knowledge and insight from some of East Texas’s most highly acclaimed runners.

Anyone interested seriously needs to check it out.  ALL runners whether beginners or veterans are welcome and encouraged to join.  Visit www.easttexasstriders.com for more info, and we hope you join us for a run next weekend!

  2. I am the adoption services coordinator for Texas Baptist Home for Children in Waxahachie, TX. We host a biannual 5k, once a year in Waxahachie and East Texas to honor our adoptive families in the area. Our 5k raises money to support post adoption services for our families. The needs of each family vary, but can include respite care, counseling, financial, medical, therapeutic direction, reunions, etc.
    We would like to share the info for our Faith for the Journey 5k in Faulkner Park in Lindale, TX on Sept. 26th. Our race site is being updated but please keep this date on your calendar. You can register at texasbaptisthome5k.org in about a month. This will be a family friendly event. Thank you for your participation in advance!
