Elk County Striders Lee Foster Memorial 5 Mile Race

Ridgway/Johnsonburg Area Cross CountryElk County Catholic Cross CountrySt. Marys Area Cross Country

Last year, the Elk County Striders hosted the thirty-third annual Lee Foster Memorial 5 Mile Race, named after a great Elk County runner who died far too young. 
The event is located in St. Marys and is held as part of the Elk County Striders Triple Crown Race series. In 2017, Rick Gabler took over the event as director. The response to Gabler’s event was tremendous — by both participants and sponsors — and that enabled the Elk County Striders to make donations to all the Elk County Cross County programs. This year's race is set to take place on Saturday, September 8, at 9 a.m. The starting line will be at the Elk Club in St. Marys. Gabler is once again growing the event with more participants and more sponsors. For more information about the 2018 event, you can contact Gabler at 814-834-6439, or at redstorm@windstream.net.  For more information about the Elk County Striders — membership, race schedule, race results, etc— visit online at www.elkcountystriders.com.
