About the Socorro Striders and Riders
The Socorro Striders and Riders is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and encouragement of long distance running, bicycling, swimming, walking, and duathlon/triathlon training, as well as to increasing public awareness of the overall health and emotional benefits of regular exercise. The club was incorporated as a non-profit corporation as of December 1999. We are open to anybody interested in running, biking, swimming, triathlons/duathlons or walking, at any level, beginner through advanced. We currently have weekly group runs and group rides, a monthly bike time trial series, a handicap running series, and organize one annual local race, the Merry Mile. We publish a monthly newsletter and have a monthly club meeting. Our monthly meetings include club business, guest speakers, and social events.
The Socorro Striders and Riders is also a great place to share and support each other in our various athletic endeavors.
