New Northeast Kingdom Running Club – St. J Striders

Okay, NEK Moms and Dads, it’s officially time to ditch the exercise excuse.  Here’s the perfect opportunity to get fit, meet new friends & discover a way to really enjoy Vermont winters!  There’s a new running club coming to the NEK that welcomes runners of all ages and levels for weekly runs.  Yes, that’s right…a running group for everyone–and that includes you!   Read on for more info, or click over to or to this Facebook page.

Here’s the short scoop…

We welcome all runners of all levels! (Although parents should accompany children as we will be running roads). We can break into distance and pace groups (2, 4, 6, 10+ miles, etc.) before we set off. It’s a perfect time to run off Thanksgiving dinner and recommit to running as we head into those cold winter months.

It is our hope to eventually become a formalized member of the Road Runners Club of America and create a year-round calendar of local running events. We’re looking for social, fun, and community minded runners to help us get established.

Join us and let your friends know about it!

STARTS THIS SUNDAY, 2PM – Nov. 27th at St. Johnsbury Academy Field House.  No fee, but must sign registration & emergency form.

For more info, contact Joe Fox at St. Johnsbury Recreation
