About Us

Yokota Striders is a family oriented running club located on Yokota Air base.  Our mission is to spread our joy of running to the Yokota community and to introduce our members to the joy of running in Japan.  Our members range from walkers to runners looking to improve their PT test to ultra-marathoners and everywhere in between.
