Member Meet-Ups Throughout Year

Informal meetups planned by many members in our private forum throughout the year. Most of the informal meet ups are at half marathon events, and members usually meet up for a pre-race or post-race dinner, or sometimes both!

Annual Member Celebration & Awards Event

One of our MAIN Club events is our annual awards event where we present 50 state finishers, 100 Half finishers, and finishers of our other various challenges. This is a super fun weekend to enjoy the presence of all club members that want to meet one another from all across the United States!

Requirements For Annual Meet Up Location Consideration
  • Your event MUST MUST MUST be fully approved to support a MINIMUM of 18:32 pace mile (4 hour minimum) walker friendly course.  This means fully supported for the walkers at that pace, including all aid stations, post race food, etc. and agree to not shut down timing if there is finisher coming inbound shortly after 4 hours.

  • Provide our club a post race tent in your finish line post race party area is ideal.


  • Currently the race must be in September, October, or at very very latest early to mid November.  This is when we do our awards, and we want to stay away from the holidays.


  • Must be within a reasonable radius to a major airport, as we have members of all income levels, flying in from all over the USA and some from outside the country. 

  • Must be near event facilities that have over 300 capacity for our annual awards night / member party


  • Not required, but all previous annual meet up races have given our club a special discount to our members.


Anything addition to the above listed is always extra bonus.


Does your event meet all of the above and have interest in being considered?

For consideration, please visit our contact page and email Nicole.
