Almost 400 runners participated in Monday night's Sea Rim Striders 4th Summer Series run. The timed run was at the hike and bike trail in Beaumont on Dishman Road. After the 3.5 mile run participants enjoyed the sweet reward of pizza.

Sea Rim Striders president, Derek Mcwilliams says, the striders club has roughly doubled in size in the past year -- to more than 600 members.

McWilliams says the running community is in a growth spurt because of the new opportunities we have in SETX.

The Striders welcome new members of all distances and paces. For more information visit
