Columbus Day Weekend Races

Big racing weekend! Congratulations to all the Striders who ran this weekend!  We had 17 runners who ran races and even a couple of runners who did more than one!  Striders participated in the BAA Half Marathon, Reebok 10K for Women, Chicago Marathon, Nantucket Half Marathon and the Wayland XC Festival.  Awesome job ladies!

NY Marathon Runners Raising Funds

On November 3, SSRC runners, Amy Leibowitz, Stephanie Hawkinson, and Julie Garvey will be running the New York Marathon.  They are also raising money for the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation (Amy and Stephanie) and Autism Speaks (Julie).  If you’d like to support any of them in their fundraising efforts please check the Runners Raising Funds Page.

There is also a CycleBar Spin Class event in Wellesley for the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation on Saturday, October 13 at 4:30pm.  This event will help support Amy and Stephanie in their New York Marathon fundraising efforts for the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation.  Nancy Ruggeri has offered to teach the class. Nancy is a fabulous instructor, plays great tunes and will work you hard.  There is a post cycle party at 6pm – 27 Rutgers Road.  There will be a GDMF gear raffle, auction items and good eats and drink!  Come and learn more about Glen and the individuals the Foundation serves.  To sign up for the spin class click here.

Cape Runs on Friday Mornings this Summer

Interested in running at the Cape this summer?

Consider joining a new running group in Orleans

We plan to meet every Friday morning at 9:00am in front of the Chocolate Sparrow in Orleans.  Runners of all levels are welcome to join.

During the year, we have been fortunate to join a wonderful group of women that meet on Friday morning for a walk or run. This “Couch to 5K” group began with the positive energy of our friend Carol Couch to 5K Running Group and has grown over the years.  Carol’s positive energy has now inspired a group of us to see if we can pull together a community of runners on the Cape.

For information or questions, please contact Susan Freed at or Laura Imperatore

June 27 and July 4

We will meet at 9am on June 27.  There is NO WORKOUT on July 4.  We haven’t decided if our meeting time will change for July and August.  Please be on the lookout for our summer workout time in your emails.

Indoor at Babson will commence on January 10th and run for 12 weeks until the end of March. For those of you that have not been there, use your GPS to find the Webster Center at Babson. As you approach you will see a parking lot on the right. We park there, we don’t park in the small lot next to the building as that is left open for staff.

The fee for indoor is $75.00. Please make your checks out to Suburban Striders and mail them to:

Susan McNatt – 1252 Central Ave., Needham, MA 02492

Alternatively, you can bring your check on that 1st Wednesday and give it to Sue. Please pay before or on that day.  Also please confirm that your USATF membership is current!!
