The Morris County Striders running club (USATF-NJ club #227) is located in Morris County, New Jersey. We welcome runners of all abilities. Some members run competitively in races from 400m to Marathons, while others just love to run without racing. Click here for more history and information about our club. To find out if our club is right for you, come join us for a run and meet our members. Below is our current schedule for group runs and track workouts.
