Top 10 Reasons for Joining Our Club

  1. You’ll get faster, stronger, better.  We’ve seen so many of our teammates significantly improve their fitness when training with a group over training alone.
  2. You’ll be opened up to a whole new circle of friends.  From group training runs and race gatherings to social events, you’ll enjoy all the support, motivation, and camaraderie that come along with being a member of our club.
  3. You’ll learn so much more about running, how to train and how to race.  We have a wealth of experience across our team.  The coaches in our club, who are also our running teammates, are there to help you achieve your goals.  Plus, there is probably a lot that you’ll teach us as well.
  4. It’s so much easier to get out there when your teammates are counting on you (and safer too).  Do you really want to run alone on those dark, dreary mornings, dodging cars and constantly looking over your shoulder?
  5. It’s free. Sure, we encourage you to purchase our team apparel for wearing at races and sign up for a USATF membership (with its perks such as race discounts and guaranteed entry into races like Broad Street), but they’re totally optional.
  6. You’ll be part of a team. It’s so cool to go to a race and see all our teammates wearing their MDRP singlets, competing together as a team.
  7. You’ll have other crazy, like-minded folks to talk to about running.  No more boring your significant other, your family, and your friends who may not quite “get” it…
  8. We’re all equals out on the road.  Your background, your ability, it doesn’t matter.  Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned veteran, everyone’s treated the same.  And, if you need to fart on the run or take a quick break in the woods, that’s totally fine.
  9. You’ll be recognized.  All your achievements will be posted to this web site for everyone to see.  And you’ll get a cool Athlete Profile page too. That’s right; you’re an athlete.
  10. It’s just so much darn fun! Oh, and did we mention that it was free?
