An Invitation…


You are cordially invited to join our Hard Core Runners Club.


Our dues are $15 per year for the entire family.  The club was founded on November 7, 1977 and includes persons of all ages who run or walk for fun, fitness, and/or competition. The main objectives of the club are to provide opportunities to run/walk, companionship, and encouragement for experienced and beginners alike.


The club’s point system has been designed to recognize persistence and participation rather than speed and continues to serve as a motivational factor. We have members from all areas across the state.


Each member receives the HCR monthly newsletter and periodic email updates that provide an up to date schedule of all events locally and throughout the Northwest along with race results and articles written by club members.  All members are encouraged to submit articles for publication.
