SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL RUNNING CLUBS!
Without Running club support many local races would not be possible. Although many races may not be involved with organizing the race, area running clubs may help promote, organize or even time events. Clubs dues are relatively inexpensive. Many clubs issue newsletters, have parties, group runs, get togethers and issue discount cards for some stores who sell running apparel.
