Course Course marshals and/or Emergency Radio Teams will be placed throughout the course.

Finish Line - Efforts will be made to help keep spectators mindful of social distancing and face mask requirements Finisher medals for all participants. Because we had already ordered medals for last year's race and had only a little over 100 runners sign-up for the Virtual 5K .

AS an added BONUS this year ALL FINISHERS will also include a Florida Striders Gaiter. Wear it in the sun or wear it in the cold.


IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FAMILY MEMBER RACE REGISTRATIONS For Strider Family Memberships, every family member who is going to register for our races MUST HAVE THEIR OWN PROFILE. This is the way to register spouses and children correctly and get our Club race discount rate. Here is how to do it. One adult in the family is the Family Head. When this person logs in to our website and looks at their profile, they will have an ADD MEMBER button on the upper right of the profile. They will give each family member their own username and password and complete the form. After doing this, proceed to race registration for each family member.If the Family Head has never logged in to our website, they can click Forgot Password and follow the instructions NOTE- This action is not required to register in our Free Fun Runs. Those registrations take place on race day.
