All area runners and walkers are welcome and encouraged to join the Riverbend Striders. The purpose of this organization is to promote health & fitness through running and walking. The Riverbend Striders serve the running/walking community by providing a year-round schedule of events, either through club managed races or by providing assistance to area race directors for non-club managed events. Our goal is to provide information, competitive events and camaraderie for those in our community who are fitness-minded and enjoy the physical and psychological benefits of exercise through running or walking
