The Ashtabula Distance Runner’s Club is growing fast! Next year will be a big step for the club as we transition our financial structure from receiving account support from the YMCA to a stand alone non-profit organization. During that transition there are some positions on the ADR board that may remain the same from 2014 to 2015, to insure we start off our first independent year on good footing, however if you have interest in serving on a committee or serving as one of the four at-large voting members on the board, please review the outline of time commitments below and submit your name and level of interest.
ADR board members meet once a month for the majority of the year. In late July we begin meeting more frequently in order to plan and prepare for the Bridge2Bridge race. Meetings occur twice a month until October and then we meet once a week until the race. Meetings typically take place on Wednesdays at 7 or 7:15pm at various locations in Ashtabula.
In addition to the Bridge2Bridge Half marathon and 5K in October, ADR sponsors and manages four races a year as “club races”:
Shamrock 2 miler – March
Greenway 2 mile and 10K – June
Indian Trails Adventure Run – July
Jingle Bell 3 miler – December
Board members are expected to assist in planning and managing aspects of these races, that DOES NOT mean you can not run them.
Feel free to nominate yourself or someone else you think would be an asset to the ADR board.
