The Suburban Striders Running Club is a women’s running group that started in Weston, MA in 2004. The group is made up of runners of ALL abilities and of runners primarily from the Metrowest Boston area. The women in our group have a wide variety of goals, from racing/running long distances to just wanting to be part of a group to only run and not race.
We meet on Wednesday mornings from 9-10 am at the Wellesley High School track for coached workouts. Coach Kathy Franey Flemming ran professionally and tailors 3 different workouts gaged to all abilities. July and August we meet from 8:30 am-9:30 am (to beat the heat) at the Wellesley High School track. During the winter (Jan-Mar) we will usually do our workouts at the Babson College indoor track on most Wednesdays from 8:30-10:30 am.
Interested? Try us for a complimentary workout! Come any Wednesday and we will ask you to sign a waiver for you to join in a workout to get a feel for our great group! First Wednesday of the month is also our coffee social post workout. Please join our wonderful community of runners!
Spring of 2022 we will be hosting an Open House on Wednesday, April 27th! Join us for a workout and/or coffee & treats afterwards to meet current members and Coach Kathy.
