Membership Guidelines

This club is open to all worldwide who have completed at least 10 lifetime half marathons.  There are no rules regarding where, when or how long it takes you to achieve this goal.  Runners, walkers, and athletes of all abilities are welcome.  If you are under the age of 18, we need parental or guardian consent to process your membership.  Members are welcome from all around the world.

We chose to open this club up to those on their way to completing 100 lifetime half marathons to provide a place where they can get the support, feedback and encouragement of others.  Our goal is to provide a place where members can request honest opinions about events, help each other reduce expenses via cost-saving tips or ride sharing, motivate and inspire each other, and more.

Whether your goal is to reach 100 half marathons in two years or twenty years, whether you run, walk or roll, and whether you do your races locally or complete them in all fifty states- we welcome you!

Although our members are often affiliated with many regional, national or international racing or endurance groups, we not affiliated with any other racing club, organization, or race/event organizers.

There is no time limit to complete your 100 half marathons.  We know it’s a goal that you are excited to accomplish. Just make sure your personal health and safety come first!

Membership Terms of Service:
We have three basic membership terms of service.

1) Have fun!
If we're not having fun participating in races and interacting with each other, then what's the point? 

2) Be nice or leave.
We expect all members to interact with each other in a respectful manner. We know there will be disagreements on issues/topics, and most people can work through disagreements or difference of opinion while being respectful of each other.  We will not tolerate bullying, name-calling, discrimination of, or harassment of members.  We also expect that our members will not spam or repeatedly post links to personal blogs.

3) Don’t cheat.
Members will be removed from the club or denied entry into the club for cheating in races.  This includes cutting the course, having another person wear your bib to get you a qualifying time for another race, etc.  

Along the lines of "don't cheat" is a special request- do not share our exclusive, club member-only race discount codes with others who are not in the club.  Do not share or post these discount codes on social media, on other racing club boards/sites, or on retail discount sites.  We personally contact every single race director for the discounts we receive, and we are given these discounts for club use only. Some race directors even have us send them a club roster to verify proper usage.  

We reserve the right to deny membership to any individuals who may have been removed or banned from other athletic or racing clubs due to behavior that would be disruptive to the club or for prior history of event cheating.
