Good Morning Striders!

This is your Captain speaking! Just kidding, it's the CalStrider Gold Cup Chair Emily-Rose...

As we start to prepare for the Gold Cup Season, you are going to start getting more emails from me. If you have any questions about anything, just reply to any email from me, and I will try to answer your questions as quickly as possible.

NOTE: Striders who won awards for the 2021 season, but were unable to attend the Gold Cup Banquet, may pick up their awards at any Gold Cup race in March and April. After that, please contact us should you wish arrange a pick-up.

For those participating as a team, the miles must be equally distributed amongst teammates. To sign up, just email with the names of those on your team, as well as a fun team name we can call out at the Gold Cup Banquet as your claim your glorious prize... ;)
