About Us

We are a 35 year old nonprofit running club that is dedicated to promoting running as a sport and fitness exercise in the lewis-clark valley. We provide opportunities to run, companionship, and encouragement for experienced and non-experienced runners. The club consists of people of all running abilities:  the casual jogger to the serious marathoner.  We also welcome walkers to join us for our weekly runs/walks and our club sponsored running events.  Click here to view some of our photos. 

 

A note about sending pictures – If you send pictures, please send a select few and format them for medium email.  Please do not send pictures with a link to Windows Live or Facebook if you want them to be posted on this site. The process to download them is too cumbersome.

News & Events
 

A big thank you goes to the hardy participants of all seven teams who ran this year’s Mt. Misery Mania Relay.   The 1st and 2nd   place teams had a hard fought dual.  The 3rd , 4th, and 5th place teams also fought it out over 56 miles!  We had our very first Woman Solo Ultra Finisher at Mt. Misery with a world record time of 12:52:35!  Congratulations to Joyce Holloway from North Bend WA.  Everyone had an adventure, including the drivers.  The temperatures were warm and the Shilo Inn provided a great post race meal.  Doug, Bill, and other volunteers did a great job putting on this year’s event.  Click on results to find out your time and placing.  Go to the Seaport Striders facebook page to view some photos of this event.  Hope to see you back next year. 

                       

Our next Strider running event is the Striders Benefit Run that takes place on Friday, August 8 @ 7 p.m.   This is an evening run in the cool of the shade starting at Chief Looking Glass Park in Asotin, WA.  100% of the proceeds goes to the high school cross-country programs at Asotin, Clarkston, and Lewiston.  Let’s support our future runners.  All funds raised will be matched by the Seaport Striders.

        VACUOUS VELOCITY

            By Margaret K. Gates

 

I want to start a program to increase my energy,

Improve my strength and stamina, my health to guarantee,

To gain the admiration of the people watching me.

    I wonder what's a sport that I might play?

 

Could golf provide the means for me to exercise, excel?

My arms are awfully weak and I don't hit the ball too well.

Coordination hampers me; my game just doesn't jell.

    My ball will hook and slice and ricochet.

 

Perhaps I'll take up swimming since no ball obeys my will,

But often in the water I begin to take a chill,

And every time I need to breathe, I wish I had a gill.

    I choke on all the chlorine and the spray.

 

I know -- I'll take up running; it requires no skill or brain.

A healthy child can do it; runners e'en can be insane.

Through rain and pain they strain to gain control of steep terrain.

    I'll run and race and chase my cares away.
