Visual Novel Database describes the premise

Stride is an extreme sport in which teams made up of six people run through town.

"You", or Sakurai Nana (default name changeable) became drawn to Stride after watching a web video depicting a Stride match with Hounan Senior High Academy. Wholeheartedly wanting to play Stride, Nana enrolled into Hounan Academy.

What awaited Nana were other boys who were to Stride the same way she was.
As you grow as a "Relationer", the leader of the team, win the "End of Summer" Eastern Japan Tournament alongside your team mates! School life, your club family, close friendship, rivalry, matches... What awaits at the end of this all?
