Student Stride returns for ninth year
Event brings in thousands for local schools
Tuesday, April 24, 2012
On Saturday, May 19, hundreds of local residents will lace up their running shoes and prepare to hit the road in what has become a signature Washougal event.
The Student Stride for Education began in 2004, with just 300 participants. In its ninth-year, organizers are expecting twice that number for the 5K run/walk.
:It has grown and evolved into a community mainstay," said Stephanie Eakins, race director. "The Stride has been a favorite event with my family for years. We have all participated, whether in the 5k run or student runs over the years. We put it on the calendar and make it a family affair."
