Our club started in 1979 by a small group of people who were passionate about running and getting others involved in the sport. It has since grown immensely into a big dedicated group of individuals and family’s who are still passionate about running but also passionate about giving back to the community.
All of our races and events are designed to give back. If running is something you love or if you just want to volunteer please join our club, we are always welcoming new members. You can find an application here
if you would like to join us. Simple fill it out and mail it in. We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
Or if you are just someone who wants to support our club but not actually join we are always looking for more sponsors to help us put our events on. If this is you please feel free to contact us here and we would be happy to discuss any sponsorship opportunities you can give us.
