All Planned T&F Meets Cancelled this Season

The Capital City Striders Board of Directors is cancelling all meets which had been planned for Striders this summer in response to actions taken and concerns expressed by the Governor of West Virginia.  The West Virginia Governor recently announced the closing of schools for the rest of the school year to prevent the spread of the Covid 19 virus.  Our athletes will have no chance to train prior to meets we had planned, and it is uncertain when the state will begin removing safety restrictions.  We will post updates as soon as we receive new information from the state.  We are hoping that we will be operating sometime later this summer or in the fall.  The Schedule page lists meets which had been planned which are now cancelled. 

CHECK THE SCHEDULES PAGE for cancelled Meets.

We want our Striders to stay safe and remain healthy!

We hope all our Striders will be patient and understanding and follow the West Virginia guidelines for social distancing and prevention of the spread of coronavirus, especially  by frequent hand washing and avoidance of touching your faces. Stay at home as much as possible.  If sick, cover your cough and call your doctor.   If possible, please try to remain in shape by working out in your homes or yards, while remaining (6’ or more) away from other people.  The West Virginia website on coronavirus information is here.  Governor Justice issued a stay at home order (here) on March 24.  


We will contact you when we can resume Capital City Strider practices and meets.   Tentative meets are listed in the schedule, but they may not occur, and the Hershey Junior Olympics has been cancelled.  We will post updates as we know more.
