Florida Striders is a Running Club!

The Florida Striders Track Club is one of the largest running clubs in Jacksonville and the North Florida area. It’s mission to promote running and good health has continued since its inception in 1978. The Florida Striders sponsor 5 races each year with the proceeds going to fund our Children’s Running Program. Last year we were recognized as the Running Club of the Year by the Road Runners Club of America. The Florida Striders epitomizes what a true running club should be through its continued youth outreach in over 60 schools affecting over 18,000 children promoting running as a healthy lifestyle for a healthy life.


Please consider joining the Florida Striders Running Club

and helping us as we look to continue to promote the sport of running and its health advantages.


Donate Shoes and Help A High School Student Go the "Extra Mile"

The Florida Striders are starting our “Extra Mile” shoes program.

Sometimes students who want to participate in track or cross-country at school are not able to because of financial burdens that would be inflected on their families by having to buy expensive running shoes.

High School track and cross-country coaches have voiced the need for running shoes for these High School students.

Our “Extra Mile” shoe program will continue to collect shoes at the Run to the Sun and Memorial Day races.

We are collecting new or gently used running shoes to be offered to Marathon High and other high school coaches for their students.

By giving your new or used shoes it gives them a chance to go a EXTRA MILE.
