MISSION STATEMENT To provide information, education, and camaraderie for novice and veteran runners of all ages and abilities. OUR BEGINNING Our club was founded in early 2007. Medina County had no running club to serve the community. Therefore, a grassroots effort of volunteerism began and allowed this non-profit club to grow and continue to set goals for the future. We are a member of the Road Runners Club of America. WHO WE ARE We are "every runner". There is a place for everyone within this club. Our club members range from those that simply run to stay in shape to those that live to compete. We are slow and fast. We run just one mile or have done one hundred mile races. We are Boston qualifiers and we are just getting ready for our first 5K. We have been running for less than a year and we have been running our whole lives. We are ever-evolving in our goals. WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US If you are a "newbie", you will benefit from the wisdom and experience of our veteran runners. They have many years of training and racing experience, some gained the hard way, that can be shared and learned from. If you are a veteran, you will benefit from a running community that "gets it" and understands and respects a running lifestyle. Training tips, inspiration, motivation, and more are found within this club. If you are just starting out or looking to improve your running, joining Medina County Road Runners will serve as one of your best resources to reach your goals.
