Pikes Peak Road Runners Sunrise Striders   


A small group of us began running together in the Garden of the Gods in the spring of 2004 as part of the PPRR Garden 10-Miler training runs.  We were labeled as the “fast trail group”.  After the Garden that year, our group decided to continue the habit of running at sunrise throughout the year, moving around to different trails and venues throughout the Colorado Springs area.  Many of us are avid volunteers, board members and race directors for the Pikes Peak Road Runners.

Over time, word-of-mouth spread about our training group as more and more runners have come out to join us.  Over the years, runners have come and gone, but one tradition has continued: regardless of the weather, and regardless of when the sun actually rises, the Sunrise Striders will be logging in some great training miles at 6AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Nearly 300 runners receive the weekly workout reminders, and on average, between 20-40 show up for any given workout.  One thing is for sure though.  Those who are consistent and stick to the training plan definitely get faster!  Get started by clicking on any of the options below.
