Sunflower Striders Running Club

The Topeka Sunflower Striders Running Club is a non-profit organization committed to the overall health and well-being of all who engage in physical activity. The Sunflower Striders Running Club encourages running, walking, or any other form of physical activity with the focus being the mental, physical and social well-being of its members.

We offer weekly get-togethers where runners or walkers can offer or receive motivation to or from others to continue in their pursuit of physical and mental fitness.  In recent years, the club has sponsored several annual fun runs including the Labor Your Legs on Labor Day Event and the Thanksgiving Day run around Lake Sherwood, and spring picnics.  One of our largest events is hosting the annual Topeka to Auburn Half Marathon each January which provides funding for local charities.  The Club has also provided funding for water fountains along the Shunga Trail and Lake Shawnee in addition to contributing to many other community service projects and activities.

If you would like to be a part of the Topeka Sunflower Striders Running Club, you can sign up today at https://squareup.com/market/sunflower-striders-running-club .  Annual individual memberships are only $20 and Family memberships are $25.  Membership includes a discount at Garry Gribble's Running Sports, discounts on many local race entries, fun runs, and more!  Consider signing up today!
