The Capital City Striders  (CCS), located in Charleston, WV is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and a club member of the USA Track & Field (USATF) as well as the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) organizations.  These organizations are the national governing bodies of track and field.  As a result of being a member of USATF and AAU, the CCS is a competitive level club.


The intent of the program is to provide proper training for the events of track & field, to engage in competition with other USATF and AAU clubs locally, regionally & nationally, and to have fun.  Athletes also gain valuable educational, social, and travel experiences, while developing confidence and respect for themselves and others.

        Into this world we came

            And we came without a choice,

        Our ancestors built this land

            And even then they had a voice.

        But before they died they planted seeds,             

        From each seed grew a child,

        A beautiful child indeed.

        Through time the cycle continued

            “Seeds” were planted year after year,

        With the sweat and love of our parents

            And certainly not without their tears.

        Those children are our future             

        And they’ll open each door a little wider,

        The ones you see before you now

            Are the very proud Capital City Striders.

        As each one crosses a finish line

            They win more than just a race,

        They win a chance to let it be known

            That they’re here to take their place.

        Hey you Capital City Striders             

        Though you may think each race is fun,

        You’ve got a lot more work to do

            Before the real race is won.

        The main event is with yourself

            Because parents can only do so much,

        And they won’t always be around

            For you to just reach out and touch.

        Whatever you do in life try to win             

        But if you don’t, hold your head with pride,

        Because no one can call you a quitter

            And we’ll love you because you tried.

        Tackle life with ambition

            And  make the doors open wider,

        On the field  be a team

            Because you  are the Capital City Striders.

        Always try your hardest             

        And  never hold yourselves back,

       Remember it’s  good to be a winner,

            So in your minds  be just that.

                        A STRIDER!
