The Norwich Bulletin, April 9, 1972
"The Mohegan Striders Running Club, a group devoted
to the furtherance of long distance running and racewalking
as a healthful form of exercise and competition, has
been formed. The Striders have applied for and received
an official Connecticut AAU charter which recognizes
it a s a member club. As such, the Striders are able
to hold AAU sanctioned events related to long or medium
distance road races and racewalking events.
The Striders offer membership to anyone wishing to
compete in the aforementioned events, or even if they
wish to further jogging or running through club activity.
Membership is open to both sexes and to all age groups."
The Mohegan Striders have come a long way since being
formed over 30 years ago. We have over 300 members and
can proudly proclaim that our Mens Open Racing Team
is once again leading the CT USATF competition. We are
the winningest club in the CT USATF Grand Prix over
the last twenty-five years. But despite our successes in the
various USATF age groups, we pride ourselves on having
the most social, the most fun, club in the state. For
speed is not the backbone of this club camaraderie
is. We are composed of runners of all shapes, sizes
and abilities. Our red and white uniforms dominate Southeastern
CT running events and are notable in road races throughout
the state and beyond.
