Seashore Strider History

The Seashore Strider Running Club was founded in 1988 and primarily serves the Rehoboth Beach and Lewes, Delaware communities but has generated interest in all surrounding areas as well. Plus, given it's part of a beach resort community, interest in the club and its activities extend to our visitors coming from Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD and Philadelphia, PA and beyond! The club is open to runners and walkers of all shapes, sizes, colors and orientation as long as they share a common interest of running and fitness. The Seashore Striders is community-focused and hosts spring, summer, and fall events for the public including the popular Seashore Strider Summer Racing Series.

Additionally, the Striders team with the GROVE CLUB to host year-round weekly fun runs in Rehoboth Beach, weekend long runs, summer session workouts at Cape Henlopen State Park and Cape Henlopen High School, a quarterly newsletter, pre-registration summer discounts, and a full youth cross country season for young athletes age 8-18 years.

The Seashore Striders split in 2005 and now have the running club and cross country program under non-profit status and will now produce the events under the name Seashore Strider Event Production, Inc. The Seashore Striders currently produce over 50 events in the year.
