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


HO HO HO, what a day for the Santa Run .  Everyone woke up to pouring rain and by 10 a.m. sun and blue sky appeared as planned by our fearless race director, Shirley.  It was the warmest Santa Run ever and quite a contrast to last year’s ice cold run of 17 degrees.  There were plenty of smiles to go around and we had 4 winners for the best costumes.  Even some of the dogs were in costume and the kids in the strollers were not to be outdone.  A big thank you goes to the volunteers for putting on this event and to all the participants who ran and walked.  Click here to view some of this year’s photos.



Join the Seaport Striders for their annual New Years Day Hangover Run on Thursday, Jan. 1st at 10 a.m. at the Lewiston Confluence Parking Lot. The event is free and there are no shirts or numbers, just the satisfaction of starting off the new year on the right foot.








Striders Annual Meeting –Tue. Jan. 13, 6:30 p.m.

You are invited to attend the Seaport Striders Running Club’s annual meeting to be held on Tuesday January 13th, 6:30 p.m. at Roosters in Clarkston.  Roosters is located at 1010 Port Drive.  All members and non-members are welcome to attend.  Attendance is free and the club will spring for hors d’oeuvres and your first drink.

Elections of club officers will take place, reading of the financial report, and other club business will be discussed.   Race directors are needed for the upcoming events in 2015.  Most all of our running events are in “cook book” digital form, so following the recipe is easy when becoming a race director.  Plus, there are old pros to help.  Remember, this club exists because of our volunteers.  See you Tuesday.



Saturday morning fun runs/walks


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.

            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.
