About the Highland City Striders
Our mission is to promote health and fitness among our membership through the sport of running and a focus on adopting healthy lifestyles. We support each other, train together, and enjoy the camaraderie of runners within HCS and other local running clubs. We provide support to local charities through the sponsorship of local running events several times a year.
Who Are the Highland City Striders?
We are runners in Hudson, Marlborough, and surrounding communities. We meet several times weekly to run various distances for fun and to keep in shape! We run, recover, have fun, and laugh together. Founded in 2002, our members are 18 years old and older; some of us are significantly older!
What does it mean to be a Strider?
We love to run together, have fun together, build friendships, support each other, and give back to the community. We run weekly workouts, train for races, run socially, and participate in local road races. Runners of all paces and abilities are welcome. In addition, we coordinate and run a number of low-key races that support the local community. For example, last Thanksgiving we organized a road race that helped to raise 3,000 food items for the local food pantry.
