Lancaster Striders race, a big win for Trinity Pantry

BY: Metro Source Staff | November 01, 2012

LANCASTER- It certainly was a community effort. The Lancaster Striders sponsored a quarter marathon (6.5 miles) road race Saturday, Oct. 27. The success of their event depended on widespread involvement and a success it was, despite the rainy weather.

The Striders pledged net proceeds from the race to Trinity Pantry.

Paul Schaefer, president of the Lancaster Striders and race director, reported that the race, run out of Westwood Park on neighboring roadways as well as the Heritage Trail, attracted more than 175 runners.

The town made certain that the roads were in good condition for the racers. The Lancaster Police and Town Line Fire Department provided traffic control. And the Lancaster Volunteer Ambulance Corps was on hand in case of emergency.

An astounding 50 to 100 volunteers registered runners, prepared and conducted a basket auction, handed out water, and cheered on the stalwart participants. Scores of local businesses and individuals donated food, water and items for the basket auction.

“Everyone associated with Trinity Pantry extends a heartfelt thanks to the runners, walkers, basket preparers, direction givers, and well wishers who turned out for the race,” said Betsy Moll, volunteer director of the Trinity Pantry. “The Lancaster Striders are to be congratulated. Theirs is a gift from the community to the community, packaged with careful planning and delivered just where it is needed and much appreciated.”
