TCTC is a club for anyone with an interest in running and fitness - not just elite runners. Our 600 members include runners and walkers of all abilities. Membership is inexpensive, only $20 per year for an individual.
We have group runs almost every day of the week. Our Monday night "fat-burners" help combat that weekend gluttony with eight to ten miles with 15-20 of your best friends at a social pace. Our Wednesday workouts include either hill workouts or track workouts. Saturday long runs are varying in distance. Many find them a great way to train for a marathon. Sunday morning "biscuit runs" are four to six miles and conclude with a trip to the K & W for a great breakfast. If you can't find a group that runs at your time or pace, let us know, we'll help you start one.
The Twin City Track Club has many social events each year. There are several hash runs to give you a chance to run and navigate at the same time. We have several breakfast runs at Salem Lake, a seven mile trail run around the lake at any pace followed by breakfast cooked up by some of the many fine cooks in the TCTC. We have an annual picnic in May and a Christmas party during the holidays with dancing and socializing. We also organize trips to major national and regional races.
Our monthly newsletter, the TCTC Flyer, is widely regarded as the best in the state, even one of the best in the country. Articles and interest stories are provided by the members. In addition there are results of club races, and a calendar of upcoming races and social events. All club members are encouraged to write for the Flyer.
The club sponsors great runs like the Frosty Fifty 50K, Beat the Heat 5K, the nationally known Ultimate Runner and the popular Salem Lake 30K and 10K trail runs.
