WHAT IS FIRST STRIDES®? 


The First Strides® program was founded in 1997 in Allentown, PA by Jane Serues. It still continues there today with over 8000 women participating. In 2001, First Strides was recognized with a national award by Road Runners Club of America and has the highest graduation rate of any beginners program.

In 2019, Jane introduced the program in North Myrtle Beach, co-presented by the Grand Strand Running Club and the City of North Myrtle Beach. The Fall 2019 First Strides® NMB workshop attracted over 170 females. Since then, workshops have been held each Spring and Fall with some modifications relating to COVID-19. First Strides® NMB is here to stay.

In Fall 2021, a sister program, First Strides® Brunsco was launched. Now local area females have the choice to join First Strides NMB on Wednesdays in North Myrtle Beach or join First Strides® Brunsco on Mondays in Shallotte, NC. Register here for First Strides® Brunsco.
