The Shenipsit Striders are a running club whose members share a joy of being in the woods. Our membership ranges from walkers and fitness runners to athletes competing in trail races, road races, orienteering and adventure races, snowshoe races and more ranging from sprints all the way up to ultra-marathon distance events.

The club sponsors a trail 24km and concurrent 6km trail sampler in May, a grueling trail hill assault in the summer, a trail marathon in the fall (a classic event at a new time of year!) and a moonlight fun run in the winter.

Training and social runs are held in various locations in Eastern CT. Check out the calendar or our Facebook page for upcoming runs.
