Why join the Anniston Runners Club?
It’s a GOOD deal!
Members pay $15.00 for an individual membership, or $25.00 for a family membership. Memberships are on a calendar year basis, from January 1 to December 31.
As a member of the ARC you gain a club membership to the RRCA. As a part of this membership, you are entitled to receive Club Running Magazine. The RRCA also provides insurance for all of our club run programs, events, and races. We host Half Naked Marathon (13.1 miles) in January, Woodstock 5K in August (It has often been proclaimed the RRCA National 5K Championship and the Southern Region Championship), and the Plucked Turkey 10K in November. Plus we support the 14 races on the Grand Prix series. We are very busy!!!
Also, only members are eligible to participate and gain points in the Grand Prix racing series. This is a HUGE deal and probably one of the major reasons our club has grown so much the last three and a half years. It’s fun and you get a great reward if you place in your age group. Look at the website for more details about the Grand Prix. You get discounts on most local race fees. Most races cost between $15-$20 to run, but if you are an ARC member, you get a $2 discount. It adds up- the average member will save over $25 in race fees alone!
Our club tries to support all levels and types of runners. We hold quarterly educational workshops, weekly training runs, and we have divisions to appeal to whatever your interest area may be: Youth Running Division, Triathlon Division, Trail Running Division, and the Women’s Running Division.
And you get invited to all the club socials and special events that include pub runs (run then eat pizza), breakfast runs (run then eat breakfast together), … you get the idea. We hold a fantastic end-of-year banquet in January at the Anniston Country Club to recognize the Grand Prix winners, 1200 Mile Club achievers, and some other neat awards.
The best thing is that you get to be a part of a growing movement of runners who want to promote the healthy benefits of running, and our club donates to the following charitable organizations: Local high school track team grants, Relay for Life, Anniston YMCA, Children Special Olympics and the local UCP Center. This makes us good community citizens. We have been invited to speak at multiple service organizations in the last year because they have heard about our growth and want to know how to duplicate it in their organization.
We want you to be heathy- come run with us!
Thanks for your interest!
