Eden succeeds in getting young runners on track

RUNNING

June 07, 1994|By Michael Reeb | Michael Reeb,Sun Staff Writer

Running success is nothing new to Scott Eden. An All-American in cross country in 1973 and 1974, Eden won six Atlantic Coast Conference titles while at Duke.

He won the Marine Corps Marathon with a 2-hour, 18-second finish in 1978 and set his personal record for the distance with a 2:16 in the AAU Championships in 1979.

But it is as founder and director of the Annapolis Striders' Junior Striders Summer Series that Eden has enjoyed his greatest satisfaction.

"When I came to Annapolis, I found a general interest in track and field lower than I expected," says Eden, 40, who was selected to receive the inaugural Nike/Road Runners Club of America Kurt Steiner Children's Developmental Running Award . "I thought if I started a summer track series, perhaps it would attract junior and senior high school runners. But it has actually attracted elementary school kids. I'm pleased to be there for whoever comes."

Part of the reason for Eden's presence is that, as a family medical practitioner, he has observed the positive benefits of exercise.

"It has given me some perspective," Eden says. "When you see the general public for physicals, you see many overweight, hypertensive things that can be prevented by exercise. I know that my own cholesterol, blood pressure and other parameters of health are excellent because I exercise."

The meets -- Saturday, June 25, July 9 and July 23 -- will be held at the Bates Track in Annapolis. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m., and races, which are free, start at 6. All participants, grouped in 5-and-under, 6-to-8, 9-to-12, 13-to-15 and 16-and-over age groups, will receive ribbons. Those who attend three meets receive a T-shirt.
