A couple of our Buckeye Striders completed the Pi Day 5K at Highbanks on March 9, 2019. Great job Sharon & Laura!
On Sunday, February 17, 2019 the Buckeye Striders, German Village Walking Club, and Love 2 Reach (L2R) clubs collaborated for a Race Walking Clinic held at the Dublin location of the Columbus Running Club. There were great tips, constructive feedback, great prizes, and fellowship shared among all of the participants. Photos by Larry at the German Village Walking Club
Several of our Striders showed "Heart" by participating at the "It's Not Valentine's Day" 5K in Dublin. Aside from sharing each other's company and a nice walk, they received a very nice mug, a warm sweatshirt, hot chocolate, and pizza.
Eight Buckeye Striders braved the cold on Saturday, February 9th to participate in the Bluejackets 5th Line 5K. It was great to be out in the sunshine and to finish on "center ice" but we're really looking forward to going to hockey game together in March!
Four Buckeye Strider walkers braved the snow for last week's weekly club walk. Another round of snow is forecast for this coming weekend. Please see our Walk Schedule page for our walk locations as well as cancellation policy: www.buckeyestriders.com/walk-schedule.html
We had 17 members of the Buckeye Striders participate in the First on the First 5K up in Westerville. The weather was not too cold and it was not pouring down rain. What a fantastic way to start off 2019!
Sharon, Linda, and Laura didn't let the rain & cold stop them from completing the "Freeze Your Fanny" 5K & 10K at Sharon Woods. Great job, ladies!
The cold weekend didn't stop members of the Striders from participating in races! We had a great group at the One Warm Coat 4 miler in Lewis Center on Saturday. Three of us walked in the Dublin Snowflake 5K on Sunday where we received free pizzas in addition to the mug and sweatshirt.
Members of the Buckeye Striders made their way through the cold and rain to finish the Santa 5K on Saturday. Great job to all who participated!
The Buckeye Striders participated in a variety of food themed races during the past couple of weeks:
The Donut Run
The Hot Chocolate 15K
The Marysville Pumpkin Dash 5K
The GC 5K Wattle (Sharon got a pie!)
The Leftover Run
The Hungry Turkey
We love to walk, and do it FAST! Some, REALLY fast! Others, just have fun and get healthy.
