Thank you for visiting the home of the Five Rivers Running Team (5Rivers). Founded in 2007, 5Rivers is a team for runners of every level. 5Rivers has been continuously operating for over 13 years in the Dayton, Ohio area. 5Rivers is a voluntary member organization that promotes a healthier lifestyle through running by supporting our members and the community and providing opportunities for training, racing, socializing, and volunteering. Membership is open to all abilities and ages of runners 18 years and above. Our membership spans a broad range from recreational runners to veteran athletes who participate in road races, marathons, ultra-marathons, trail runs, relays, and multi-sport events during the year. There are no formal membership dues, but a voluntary $5 per month donation is always appreciated. Team members can donate or not. Donations are not tracked. All donations are used to offset club expenses such as the website, social activities like the annual Christmas Party, and USA Track & Field membership dues. So, no matter if you are new to running, or a veteran runner, you will always feel welcome as a member of the 5Rivers Running Team.
