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!

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 are any finishers 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 typically be mid September through mid November. This is the timeframe we hold our awards banquet, primarily to stay away from holidays and to stay within the bounds of most ideal weather for travel.
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.
