Join us!

We are a 37 year old nonprofit running club that is dedicated to promoting running as a sport and fitness exercise in the Lewis-Clark valley. We provide opportunities to run, companionship, and encouragement for experienced and non-experienced runners. The club consists of people of all running abilities:  the casual jogger to the serious marathoner.  We also welcome walkers to join us for our weekly runs/walks and our club sponsored running events.


Want to start out the week on a good note?  Then join the Striders for a hill repeat workout.  We meet most Mondays  at 5:00 p.m. at Chestnut Beach Park in Clarkston to run hill repeats. Run or walk at your own pace or in a group while you chat about the day’s events.  We usually run or walk no more than a short hour before dinner. Note – In the winter, we often park at the Asotin County PUD parking lot and run or walk the Scenic Way hill.  The pathway is a well lighted half-mile climb up to Appleside in the Clarkston Heights.

This is our weekly social run/walk along the Snake River Greenbelt Trail.  Start time for a 3 to 5 mile run/walk is 8:00 a.m.  Longer distance runners start at 7:00 a.m.  Meet at the Clarkston confluence parking lot at 100 Fair St. 

We meet afterward around 9:00 a.m. at the Clarkston McDonalds for coffee and/or breakfast.  Enjoy the camaraderie and meet new people who like to stay in shape.  


St. Pat's Day Run

Our 2016 St-Patrick’s Day 5K & 10K runs were a great success.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather.  194 participants completed the timed runs.  We had a large number of families this year, some with their pets.  We want to thank all of you for your participation, and for your patience as our LCSC timing crew worked through some technical difficulties.  Thanks go out to the LCSC timing crew itself for being ready to deal with the issue.  Additional thanks to all our volunteers, to include Col Helflin’s Clarkston High School JrROTC crew who handled our water stations and traffic safety.  Run Safe & Run Long.

The Edge of Hell

Edge of Hell run was a great success this year.  Ideal weather conditions greeted runners with sun and clouds and perfect running temps.  A total of 150 runners participated this year, making this the biggest Edge of Hell run so far.  Thanks to all the runners who came out and also to the volunteers who made this race happen.  A big thank you to Debbie Whiteley and Tom Callery for being co-race directors with a special shout-out to All Coons for designing the great t-shirts.
