The Ocean Running Club (ORC) was formed by a group of running friends in the late 1970's and formally became a Running Club in May 1980. It is a family-oriented athletic club that promotes and encourages running and walking as a competitive sport and as a means of healthful exercise. Our members, about 350 of them, range in age from 8 to 80. We sponsor a variety of events throughout the year, and the common thread through all of our events is FUN! We like to run hard, we like to compete, but above all else, we like to have fun together! The ORC is a non-profit organization and holds membership in the Road Runners Club of America. ORC Member benefits include reduced pre-registration rates for club sponsored events, a monthly newsletter, discounts at area stores, a year-end awards banquet, club meetings with guest speakers, and the camaraderie of a friendly group of running or walking partners for racing or training.
