What is a Strider?

What is a strider? On my home page under the progress bar it says “37 striders”. Is that how many people are using city strides in my city? Cheers

A Strider is a word I came up with to refer to someone who uses CityStrides.
I’m not super consistent in using it everywhere in the site, and I haven’t checked to see if it resonates with people. I haven’t seen others use the phrase, so I’m assuming it doesn’t.


I for one like it! I use it super frequently :slight_smile:

I love the term! However I am a bit confused as to how it works and I think it is a UX thing.

If I go to town X, to look at how many streets I have completed, I can look at Striders. Does this just mean here is a list of Striders who have run through this town?

In town X, strider ABC had 6.0%. In town y, strider ABC had 99.06%.


It’s a list of anyone who has completed a street in that city.

Each person has their own percentage complete for each city they’re running. That percentage complete is what’s displayed in that list of Striders.

Me too! I’m very new, but getting hooked. I wonder if @JamesChevalier has considered selling t-shirts with the CS logo on them?

I recently started doing Parkruns, and they offer (to buy) t-shirts when you hit milestones (number of runs). I’m looking forward to getting the e-mail that says I’m eligible to buy.

I would seriously consider a CityStrides (tech fabric) T.

PS. Could not find a good link on Parkrun re: Ts, but did find this: https://www.parkrun.com/news/2019/07/31/milestone-t-shirts-back-on-track/
