The Glenarden Track Club was initially organized as the Dellwood Avenue Striders in the summer of 1983. Its founding members were Larry Colbert, Lamont Seller, Ernest Kinard, and Shannon Marshall. By 1987, the club had grown in membership and had established its reputation of helping youth find fulfillment in track and field. At this time the club known as the Dellwood Avenue Striders became the Glenarden Track Club.
Message to Our Athlete
On December 21, 2003, the Glenarden Track Club celebrated its 20th anniversary. Two thousand four starts our 21st year of “Keeping Our Youth On The Right Track”. This would have not been possible without the hard work and dedication of our parents, coaches, administrative staff, the community, and most of all our fine group of athletes.
Over the years our track team and its coaching staff has received numerous accolades on and off the track. In competitions worldwide, our members have completed successfully at the Athletic Congress, the National Junior Olympics, Penn Relays, Olympic Trials and many more. The athletes have early exposure to college life as a result of traveling to USA Track and Field regional and national meets all over the United States.
We welcome all of our new and former athletes for another successful year of competition, as we strive to live up to our motto “Keeping Youth On The Right Track”.
Larry I. Colbert,
President & Founder
