Become a Member
Fast, slow, old, young, men, women—we welcome everyone who has an interest in running. The Club provides great coaching and an enjoyable social atmosphere, all while supporting the mission of the Ronald McDonald House of Providence.
If you’ve never done a track workout before, don’t be intimidated! We break up into different groups based on ability and experience; there’s a group for everyone. No matter what your starting point, you’ll get support to help you improve your speed, endurance, and overall fitness.
How to Join
We keep membership costs reasonable: Our membership fee is $60 a year, with a $100 maximum per family. Students can join for just $10 a year. All of our coaches and other helpers are volunteers; your dues go toward direct club costs and support for the Ronald McDonald House of Providence.
Practice Times & Locations
In the spring, summer, and fall, practices are held on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:45 am and on Wednesdays at 5:45 pm. These practices offer specific weekly workouts designed to improve speed and endurance. You can find the current week’s workout here.
Practices are held at the Brown University Stadium on Sessions and Elmgrove in Providence (use the Sessions Street entrance). We practice rain or shine; as club President Rick Ripley says, “If it rains, we all get wet. Only lightning will halt outdoor practice.”
In the winter, practices are held at the Brown indoor track at 235 Hope St. in Providence on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:45 am.
In addition to these regular workouts, the club holds runs on other days during the week. See our full running schedule.
