The Capital Striders Corporate Sponsorship Program provides an opportunity for businesses and organizations to assist us with our mission to promote and encourage running through the education of the community on the benefits of physical fitness and amateur sport. Corporate Sponsorships are for the current calendar year and help defray the administrative costs of running the Club and hosting our races: Capital Pursuit and Loop the Lake (road races) and Sycamore 8 and To Grandmothers House We Go (trail races). This allows us to give back more to the community in the form of scholarships, supporting youth track clubs, educational programs, and much more. Sponsorship can be a cash donation or an in-kind contribution.

We are a non-profit corporation with tax-exempt status, 501(c)(3) through our national affiliation with the Road Runners Club of America.

The Capital Striders extend our sincere thanks to our Sponsors for this year. Members, be sure to thank them too for helping our organization with our mission.
