What we're about

Stevens Creek Striders Running Club is based in Cupertino, California. It has about 80 members residing in and around Silicon Valley. The club is a casual, fun-loving group with a very diverse membership. Runners of all ages and abilities get together to train and run.

Stevens Creek Striders meets on Saturday morning at 8.30am to run on the trails of Stevens Creek County Park. There are about 40 miles of trails in the park and these vary from easy to quite difficult. After a short meeting, members form groups of similar ability and run or walk for around 90 minutes, followed by breakfast in Hobee's Restaurant in Cupertino.

On the social side, the club has an event about once a month. Some are simply fun, such as the Holiday Party with dinner, dancing and the presentation of awards nominated by the membership. The Striders has occasional picnics, expeditions, and races.

Start the weekend with a great trail run above Cupertino!

Location visible to members

As every Saturday we are meeting at the dam parking lot along Stevens Canyon Road. There is available free parking adjacent to the paid parking at the Dam. (Just park along the road UNLESS THERE ARE SIGNS DISALLOWING IT. ). See map. (http://goo.gl/maps/lUOW) Or you can pay for parking at the machine near the entrance.

We run typically 6 to 9 miles. As hilly as you like! We usually split into 2 or 3 groups based on how fast and long people want to go. There is a group for every speed and distance. We never leave anyone alone on the trail and always wait for slower runners. There are usually at least 10 of us running each Saturday (rain or shine) but most of us do not sign up via Meetup so don't be discouraged if only a few seem to have signed up. If the meetup ever gets cancelled then we will remove this invite. Come and join us. There is no need to be a member to join for the Saturday runs, but of course we always welcome people who want to become members.

Striders Reservoir Run 2021

Villa Maria Picnic Area

The Stevens Creek Striders have been running and volunteering at the Reservoir for 40 years, and we're thrilled to be able to share these trails with you for Half Marathon, 10K, and Lollipop (2.4 mi) race distances. You will run or walk through our favorite trails, from the cool shaded single track of Tony Look to the open vistas of Coyote Ridge.

The Striders Reservoir Run is a wonderful introduction to trail running for road runners, yet it promises to be challenging enough for the most experienced trail & ultrarunners. For our 2nd year hosting this race, we're excited to feature a modified and expanded course. Detailed course information, event details, and registration are available on our Ultrasignup page: https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=81895

This event is capped at 75 runners for the Half Marathon and 10K.
Runners in the Lollipop Loop charity run/walk and children’s race (2.4 mi) will register on the day of the event.

We hope to see you there!

Note - we will not be meeting for our usual Saturday morning run on the day of the race.
