About Us

We are a 37 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


Time for our first big event of the year!  The Edge of Hell will be run on February 20, 10:00 a.m. at Hell's Gate State Park in Lewiston, Idaho.  The run starts at the Jack O'Connor Art Museum.   Note- the park does charge a $5 entry fee per vehicle.


There are two distances, your choice of either running the regular 4-mile event OR doubling your fun by running the "2-Looper" by turning around near the finish and running in the opposite direction, 8 miles total!  As you can see, there are great views from the top of Charlie's Peak! 


Pre-register before Feb 11 to guarantee a shirt.  Remember, club membership is not necessary for your participation, WE WANT YOU THERE!!!!!  The run will be followed with a pizza social at Fazzaris on Bridge street in Clarkston.



















The St. Patrick’s Day Run is coming up on Saturday March 19 at 10 a.m.  This event will be chip timed, so register early.  There will be random drawings for prizes and special prizes for the kids.  Pre-register before March 2 to guarantee a tech shirt.  Come on out and have a fun time.   On line registration available at IWantRegistered.com .






Saturday morning fun runs/walks – 8 am


This is our weekly social run/walk along the Snake River Greenbelt Trail.  Start time for a 3 to 5 mile run/walk is 8:00 a.m.  Longer distance runners start at 7:00 a.m.  Meet at the Clarkston confluence parking lot at 100 Fair St. We meet afterward around 9:00 a.m. at the Clarkston McDonalds for coffee and/or breakfast.  Enjoy the camaraderie and meet new people who like to stay in shape.  




Monday’s Hellacious Hills - 5 pm


Want to start out the week on a good note?  Then join the Striders for a hill repeat workout.  We meet most Mondays  at 5:00 p.m. at Chestnut Beach Park in Clarkston to run hill repeats.

(Check the Seaport Striders Facebook page for up-to-date location information)

Run or walk at your own pace or in a group while you chat about the day’s events.  We usually run or walk no more than a short hour before dinner.


Note – In the winter, we often park at the Asotin County PUD parking lot and run or walk the Scenic Way hill.  The pathway is a well lighted half-mile climb up to Appleside in the Clarkston Heights.

            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.
